I'm creating a new menu for a web site which consists of several labeled icons which when clicked give a drop down sub menu. Due to the content, some of the main menu options do not necessitate a drop down so instead will direct users to that landing page.
Without some way to designate which menu option drops down and which doesn't, is this setting me up for a bad user experience? I'm inclined to think it is because the user may click a menu option expecting to get a sub menu but is instead redirected to another page without being forewarned. Although, even after landing on the new page they will still have the same menu.
