In this article you will learn how to add, hide, delete and rearrange mega menu items. Menu items are your website's navigation, and the primary way your customers will find what they are looking for. To get started login to your site's Admin.


First you will need to determine whether you have a Static menu or a Mega menu. The easiest way to determine this is:


Mega Menus (MM)
What Are Mega Menus?


Every website comes with a pre-made Mega Menu. If you don't have one or aren't sure, email support@thinkspacehq.com. It is safe to say the pre-made Mega Menu will cover about 50% of your bases if you don't make any modifications to the Main Mega Menu before implementing it. Generally speaking, you could make the switch and have about an hour's worth of work to make the menu 100% applicable to your business. If you do this, a good time time of day would be the late evening when website traffic is low. Alternatively you could build out the MM to the best of your ability/knowledge and then make the switch. This is the recommended route to go. Get the menu as close as possible and then turn it on. This route will not allow you to see changes as you make them on the front-end of the website, though. 

If you choose to make the switch from a Static Menu to a Mega Menu or vice versa on your own, all you will need to do is change the slug in each main menu item. They are "Main Default" and "Main Mega Menu". Whichever menu type you choose, 'main' must be the text in the "Slug" field to indicate this is the menu you want. The website will show whichever menu has 'main' in the slug. The menu you do not choose can have anything but 'main' as the slug.

There are two pieces to a Mega Menu (MM) on your website:

  1. Menu items
  2. Menu item widgets*
    *You cannot add a MM item without first having created the MM widget.

To edit a MM widget:

  1. Navigate to Content > Mega Menu Widgets
  2. Click on the widget you want to edit
  3. Click "Edit widget options"
  4. Make any edits you need
  5. Click "Save Changes"
  6. Click "Close"
  7. Click "Save"

To add a new MM item:

  1. Navigate to Content > Menu Items
  2. From the "Add" button drop-down top-right of the page, select "Mega Menu Item"
    The process from here is similar to a regular menu item except you'll choose which Mega Menu Widget should be tied to this menu item.
  3. From the "Mega Menu Widget" drop-down choose the widget you want to show in this section of your Mega Menu
  4. From the "Widget columns" drop-down choose how much space you want this section to take up in the drop-down on the front-end.
    You have 12 columns to work with total per drop-down. Your average mega menu widget needs at least three columns ("3 (25%)"). Do not exceed twelve columns.

To connect a MM widget to a pre-existing MM menu item*:

*You must have already created the widget.

  1. Navigate to Content > Menu Items
  2. Click on the Menu Item you wish to update
  3. From the "Mega Menu Widget" drop-down choose the widget you want to show in this section of your Mega Menu
  4. Consider updating the "Widget columns" drop-down depending on the content you're displaying in this MM section*.
    *Example: Is it 40 brands? You'll need more than three columns for sure, otherwise your menu will be several inches tall.

MM Widget Math Examples


The following references the below screenshot.


The "Type" Column

In the "Type" column of every child you will see a number and in parenthesis a percentage. This number represents how many columns this particular mega menu item is going to take up


Engagement Menu: In the "Type" column for each child you see a 4. There are three 4's. 4 + 4 + 4 = 12. 12 columns total to work with.


Wedding Menu: In the "Type" column for each child you see different numbers. 4 + 5 + 3 = 12. 12 columns total to work with.



Below is a visual reference of the 12 columns you have to work with. THIS REFERENCE IS NOT TO SCALE.
