I would like to simplify SEF URLs of menu items in lower levels of my menu by omitting the parent menu item alias from the URL.
I installed the Direct Alias plugin, which should be doing exactly this thing, but I have a strange problem with it: When I use the plugin to set a lower level menu item alias as 'direct', then in the frontend display the item is moved from dropdown to the top level menu. Or when I set the plugin to automatically affect all menu items, they are all put to the top level. I suspect this might be caused by Gantry 5 (I'm using a Gantry menu particle for the main menu), because in an ordinary Joomla menu module the plugin works fine.
Is this a known issue? Is there any workaround? Or is there any alternative to the Direct Alias plugin to achieve this?
