When you click the link on the page that direct you where you already are it goes blank.

I saw a few students having the same problem and they came up with different methods to solve this. Such as: a:not([href=#]) and disable the links.

which would be the most appropriated solution?

Anything effective could probably be considered "appropriate".

My favorite solution is possibly the most popular one, which is to modify the HTML so that the item representing the current page is no longer a link at all. That way nothing will happen if it is clicked on, and the functionality will be immediately obvious to anyone reading the HTML even if they are not familiar with the CSS.

I previously suggested this and gave an example in my answer to this other question.
