Nested Dropdown Menu Depth - Empire Theme

It seems shopify sets a maximum depth of nested menus to 3. Is it possible to add an additional level beyond this? We are using the Empire theme and attempting to create a mega menu with sidebar since our number of broad categories exceed the 5 mega menus permitted on the navigation header.  There seem to be 3rd party mega menu apps however is it possible to have more than 5 mega menu items without the use of one of these apps?

Goal: Catalog->Product Category 1 -> Subcategory 1 -> Subcategory 2

Please note that our website is not yet launched therefore we cannot share the URL for support. 

Thank you.

Hi @LitExtension & @KetanKumar ,

Thank you for your responses. However this does not solve my issue. I already know how to add mega menus. The problem is there seems to be a limit of 5 mega menus only. I have at least 7 menu items that require a mega menu. If you know a way to bypass/ increase the limit of mega menus I can add to the header then please let me know. 

PS I attempted to mix 5 "Mega Menu" with 2 "multi-column single menus" however when I do this the spacing and font of the menus are completely different and not presentable. 

Kind Regards

Hi @KetanKumar,

As you can see in the attached screenshots, I have 7 menu items that require mega menus. However on the lefthand side you can see that shopify only allows me to include 5 max. The error message attached is displayed if I try to add a 6th megamenu. Is there any way to bypass this limit? Thank you.

Hi @Hydrodionne,

 

I've got the same issue you're talking about - except i want side menues not the mega.

I can see by your link that you now actually have 8 mega menues, can you explain how you did that? this threat just ends with no result.

 

I hope you can help,

 

Alexander
