UB Mega Menu v1.2.0

We’re happy to announce the release of UB Mega Menu v1.2.0 that brings a new menu type -- horizontally stacked category dropdown. This simple solution is handy for a massive retail store with deep level categories.

Let’s take a closer look and see how you can experiment with your mega navigations.

Multiple horizontal menu levels

With the horizontally stacked category dropdown, the mega menu is visually divided into the 3-level structure: Main menu > Submenu 1 > Submenu 2.

On mouse hover, each primary category branches into submenus with corresponding second-level and third-level subcategories visible at once in one dropdown.
