Single Menu Item Settings

After setting up all other Mega Menu configurations, the only task remaining is the single Mega Menu item building. Its pretty easy if you already have created a Mega Menu theme (WordPress Dashboard > WP Mega Menu > Themes) and a WordPress menu (WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Menus).

In the above part of this documentation, we’ve shown how to create a WordPress menu, and a Mega Menu theme. So now it’s time to create and configure single Mega Menu items. To do this, firstly you need to visit WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Menus.

There you will see a menu opened in editing mode. From the left, you can choose a Mega Menu theme to use with the currently editing menu. You can also choose to disable a menu theme and use your website theme’s typography and designs. Still you can use the Mega Menu structure.

Building a Mega Menu

You can build a Mega Menu only with top level menu items. Sub menu items cannot be used to build a Mega Menu. But you can apply other Mega Menu features like visibility, options, and icons on all levels of menus. You will get the Mega Menu building option on an individual menu item by hovering mouse on it.

So, click the ‘WP Mega Menu’ button, and the following window will appear.

To start building a Mega Menu, toggle the Mega Menu switch to ‘Yes’. The drag-and-drop visual menu builder will be activated.

Once the Mega Menu is activated, you can add rows and then drag and drop widgets into the columns of these rows.

After finishing adding widgets inside the rows/columns, you need to define the menu stretch. Select a stretch (default, stretch row, stretch row and contents) from the top bar.

The Mega Menu drag-and-drop builder automatically saves the changes as you edit the menu layouts. There’s no separate Save button.

Adding a Tabbed Mega Menu

Creating a tabbed mega menu is a lot easier with WP Mega Menu. Go to the Dashboard and hover over the Appearance section. You will find Menus link in the extended portion. Click on the Menus.
