WordPress menu

All the menus applied in the site are created in Dashboard -> Appearance -> Menus. This WordPress manual provides detailed instruction on creating/editing/saving menus. Our themes provide two menu locations: the Main menu and the Mobile menu. One and the same menu might be both: Main and Mobile. In addition, our themes provide various options to display the menu in any place of the site, as many menus as it may be necessary using our Header builder, Elementor element, or WordPress widget. You can create as many menus as it may be necessary: Adding a menu to the site.

Mega menu

All our themes provide options extending the default WordPress menu functions making the menu more flexible and powerful by means of megamenu blocks. Mega menu blocks are Elementor builder templates, containing Extra menu elements to make sub-menu better arranged and looking nicer. Besides Extra menu elements, megamenu blocks can contain images, text and other elements from Elementor chart.

In order to create a mega menu it is necessary to create HTML blocks separately for each menu item via Dashboard -> HTML blocks – > Add new. Note that the mega menu is not supported on mobile devices.

As soon as Mega menu blocks are ready, they may be added to menu items in Appearance -> Menu -> Select menu -> enter menu item -> HTML Block for the dropdown in the Custom fields [for theme] which appear only after the menu has been saved. First of all, it is necessary to set “Full width”, “Set sizes” or “Container” in the Design option to make the HTML Block dropdown available.
