Magento 2 Mega-menu Complete Set
UB Mega menu for Magento 2 allows you to create beautiful horizontal and vertical menu layouts splitted into columns, and embed rich media elements (images, videos, banner etc.,) into menu items.
For any Magento store, it’s a common practice to add category, CMS page link, CMS Static block content, custom link or other Magento default links like My Account, My Wishlist, Login etc., into mega menus. Our Magento 2 UB Megamenu facilitates to display all these options in one visual panel with smooth effects, no scrolling needed.
