Hi, I hope someone can help me with this issue. Thanks for your support.

We are currently using the ShowTime theme and most of the demo sites have really great, wide menus with categories and subcategories under them.

For example:



Can anyone direct me on how to do this on our site? I love how organized it looks! Thanks a lot!

Hi, @IanYVH.

This is Elias from Shopify Support. I'd be happy to provide some guidance on this! 

The wide menus with categories and subcategories is a built-in feature on ShowTime theme, called Mega Menu. The developers, High Mile Themes, also has a guide to help with setting up Mega Menu on their theme - Customizing site header and navigation. If you run into any issues setting this up on your theme, you can always reach out to the developers for assistance and you can contact them here

For themes that don't come with Mega Menu, this is something that can be installed through an app as well. In the event you decide to change themes later, and for others that may come across this topic - Here's a few third-party apps with Mega Menu available from our App Store:

- Buddha Mega Menu
- Smart Mega Menu & Navigations
- Meteor Mega Menu

If you need any help with these apps, you can also contact the developers through the contact information found in the Support section of their app pages. 

I hope this helps! If you have any other questions on this topic, simply get back to me here and share some details on where you're stuck at - I'd be happy to take a closer look!
