Just the Brand.
Jasoliya

Add this css in Asset->theme.scss file at bottom:

 

@media only screen and (min-width: 767px) {
      .navigation-menu .has-dropdown:nth-child(7) .navigation-submenu {
             column-count: 2;
        }
    }

Note: i have give solution just by console so if you add any menu before "Brands" then change 7 to its sequence number.

Please use below code to split your long column into small ones:

$("#SiteNav li ul").each(function(){
var len = jQuery(this).find('li').length;
if(len > 9){

$.fn.extend(
{
list2Columns: function(numCols)
{
var listItems = $(this).find('li'); /* get the list data */
var listHeader = $(this);
var numListItems = listItems.length;
var numItemsPerCol = Math.ceil(numListItems / numCols); /* divide by the number of columns requires */
var currentColNum = 1, currentItemNumber = 1, returnHtml = '', i = 0;
var classname = $(this).parent().attr('id');

/* append the columns */
for (i=1;i<=numCols;i++)
{
$(this).parent().append('<ul class="column list-column-' +classname+ i + '"></ul>');
}

/* append the items to the columns */
$.each(listItems, function (i, v)
{
if (currentItemNumber <= numItemsPerCol){
currentItemNumber ++;
}
else
{
currentItemNumber = 1;
currentColNum ++;
}
$('.list-column-'+classname+currentColNum).append(v);
});
$(this).parent().addClass('expended-div');
$(this).remove(); /*clean previous content */

}
});


$(this).list2Columns(3);

}
});

Hi 

My first long menu converted into a multi-colmon dropdown menu. But other long menus still long.

Shouldn't that code going to convert all long menus of the whole site?

 

Apple > Case. This is working fine.

Apple >  W&F Case. Its still a long menu

 

Any idea why its happening?

 

Kind regards,

Roni
