Hi, can you create a completely separate mobile menu?

Hi

The main menu and the mobile menu is one item and can only be used in-conjunction.

Please feel free to ask more questions if needed.

Kind Regards, Gideon

Hi. I am thinking of using this plugin on a very customized theme I’m developing and that has very specific demands for the menu, hence I’m looking for a more robust menu solution and this one looks awesome :)

I know some of the questions I’m asking can be done through CSS/HTML, but I’d like to confirm with you whether this would be the case or, and more importantly, if it would be done with the menus generated by the plugin.

1) Can I create more than one menu? I need one of them at the footer, for instance.

2) Can I have a mega menu inside another mega menu?

3) Is it possible to have the mobile menu use only drop down and the normal menu use the mega menu?

4) Is the menu added to the page when it is loaded as HTML or is it loaded through AJAX or some JS call?

5) Is it possible to use a dynamic list of posts on the mega menu? Let’s say the 5 most recent ones instead of a fixed list? How? I’m thinking also to add somehow some related posts. I don’t mind creating the code to generating the posts, but I am not sure there would be a way to plug them into the menu.

6) My designed menu is one that does not take the whole screen width and is a few pixels off the top too. Is that possible? Along with that, the logo has a height bigger than the height of the menu. Is that something easily done with the plugin or will some CSS customization be needed?

7) In a more generic sense, is it possible to add classes to specific pieces of the menu or even extra HTML that may be needed to follow my menu design?

8 ) I would like to have different colors for different levels of the drop down, is it possible through the configuration or through some extra CSS?

9) Still on the drop down, is it possible to make it only close after a click outside the them or if ESC is pressed? I see people getting irritated when the menu disappears because their mouse moved outside the menu unintentionally :/

Thank you so very much for the answers you can provide :)

Cheers!

Hi Marvila

It looks like you need quite a custom menu and some of the requirements could be achieved with Hero Menu but unfortunately it wouldn’t be able to cater for all of your needs. I’ll break down the answers to each of your points.

1 – Yes, multiple menus can be created and their shortcodes used on the same page.

2 – This would not be possible, mega menus cannot be nested within each other.

3 – An option is provided to hide mega menu parent links from the mobile menu but not the other way around for standard dropdowns so this would require custom CSS to show/hide the appropriate parent links.

4 – The menu HTML is added on load but it does till rely on its javascript files to be loaded and executed for its display and functionality.

5 – The post element would by default show the latest few posts of a category rather than a specific selection of posts. Unfortunately though it does not have any sort of related posts feature so this would not be possible.

6 – The plugin would allow for width customization but not its positioning from the top of the page so it would rely on your HTML to position it but in essence could have some CSS to add margining/padding/top to adjust its position. The logo however is limited to the height of the menu bar so it would need custom CSS to adjust that.

7 – Custom CSS classes can be added to each navigation link but not to other elements in the menu. However custom HTML could only be added to the HTML element which can be added to a column of a mega menu but the plugin does not allow for custom HTML to be added for other sections.

8 – This is not a default feature as it would be a global setting so it would require custom CSS to change the color of each item individually.

9 – Unfortunately no, the dropdowns only work via a hover effect and not a click or button press.

I hope this helps clear up a few things, please let me know if you have any question.

Regards, Milos

Thanks a lot, Milos!

Pre-Sale Question – I have a WP/BuddyPress website. Can I show certain elements in the menu when logged in and others functions when logged-out? Also I see Google Map, Can we embed Vimeo’s video instead? Thank you :)

Hi Jf

The menu does support user roles for the navigation so nav items can be displayed/hidden based on the users role however not other elements i.e. logo or social media icons. Videos can definitely be embeded into a mega menu .

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Regards, Milos
