Hi.

 

I've just started building a site based on the Venture snowboards theme and want to add the megamenu feature. I've read through a lot of the questions and searched around but still struggling to find a basic explanation of how to add this feature, rather than just nested dropdown menu.

 

Im aware that there is a snippet related to the megamenu. But I don't know how / what to do with that to activate this feature, then how to add products to that.

 

Any pointers would be hugely appreciated.

O im not too sure #noob also

There's nothing in the custom themes section?

Perhaps these are helpful:

You could also try downloading a megamenu app like Buddha. 

Hope its helpful. 

Goodluck

Thanks Paddy, i've seen those links but still cant seem to get it to activate?! Im using the snowboard version - the outdoor appears to have it in the demo version but changing themes doesnt help either..

 

Hesitant to pay for a 3rd party app like Buddha as I know this theme has the capability....just not me right now!

 

Thanks for the answer 

 

Cheers

Yeah I hear u. I wasnt a great fan of the Buddha mega menu anyway but it
was effective.
I tried the Icon theme & it seemed to have the mega menu but it was
limited, which wasnt explained in the theme description when i downloaded
it (&paid for it).
Hmmm.
Not too sure.
We'll your in the right place.
My feeling is app is the best solution or have your menu link to categories.
When i had the problem with the icon them I just restructured how i was
going to display my products. It wasn't wot i had envisioned but it worked
well.
Sorry I'm not helpful.
Goodluck : P

You must have your "Main Menu" item linked to a collection for the Mega Nav to show up.From you 

From you Online Store menu go to Navigation

Click you menu (usually "Main menu")

Click edit on the menu item you want to have a mega nav

Click "Link", choose a collection to link to 

Click "Apply Settings"

Click "Save Menu"

Now go to your site and you should have a Mega Nav!
