Mega Menu

Content

Description

For websites offering a large range of products or services, a Mega Menu comes in handy. Unlike normal drop menus, a Mega Menu allows you to include multiple categories in your menu, making navigation straightforward and clear at just one glance.

Basic

The basic Mega Menu is a tree-based menu which can be displayed as 3–6 columns according to your preference.

How to build a basic mega menu
  1. Step One

    Go to Admin Panel > Appearance > Menus and build a hierarchy. e.g. For a 3-column basic menu, you need to create a hierarchy like this:

    • Basic mega menu
      • Column #1
      • Column #2
      • Column #3
        • Animals
        • Fruits
          • Apple
        • Cars

  3. Step Two

    Open the top-level menu item. In our case it is the Basic mega menu. Enter mega-3 into the Title Attribute field to set a mega menu with 3 columns.

    Note: You need only set the mega-3 title attribute for the top-level item in the mega menu. It is not necessary to set this attribute for items lower on the mega menu.

  4. Step Three

    Click on Save Menu and you're done. If you require a mega menu with 4 columns, enter mega-4 for the title attribute instead. Similarly, enter mega-5 for 5 columns and mega-6 for 6 columns.

Advanced

An advanced mega menu catered to the page the user is currently on. Advanced mega menus allow you to include any kind of content, incl. images.

Shortcodes are allowed.

    [one_fourth]

    [/one_fourth]
    <!-- end  C O L U M N   # 4 -->
    
  2. Step Two

    Click Publish band get an ID of the page you've created. The URL should look like this: http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=664&action=edit&message=1

    Take a look the post=664. In this case, 664 is the ID you need.

  3. Step Three Go to Admin Panel > Appearance > Menus and insert the ID as the Title Attribute field of the top-level menu item:

    Please ensure menu item does not include Custom Links, Pages or Categories, like a Basic Mega Menu would.

  4. Step Four

    Save your changes and you're done.
