April 15, 2016 Update: Our Magento 2 UB Mega menu is now available for download -- here.

It’s great to announce that our growing Magento 2 extension store sees a brand new extension today -- UB Mega menu (1.0 beta)! For the past couple of years, mega-menu has become a trend in web design, in particular of e-commerce website. That’s why we add this extension into our Magento 2 store, following our first UB Content Slider extension.

Magento 2 UB Mega-menu makes it simple to get started but powerful enough to create highly customised and creative mega menu configurations. It fits all the requirements of modern menu like responsive, mega drop down, support multi elements… I will walk you through key highlights of our initial release (for sure, you can expect new enhancements to be added in the upcoming updates).

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.

From our experience with Magento 1 themes, mega menu is one of the most effective way to organise navigation options to capture user attention with featured typography, icons, featured images etc.,

Enhanced Drag n Drop Interface
Drag and Drop is one of those interactions that can really help to make configuration simple to use. It gives you the ability to easily stack and arrange menu items on the fly.

Imagine that your Magento store has a wide variety of menu items, then adjusting sort order or change hierarchy of parent vs. child menu items is very easy, simply drag and drop menu item in the desired location.

Show banner, video, -- all without leaving the main menu. UB Mega menu lifts all hard work and gives you the ability to add these content types with ease.

As you might know, besides displaying main product categories for newcomers, one of the best practice is to display featured and new products for loyal customers. Presenting users with clearly defined options that engage instantly is the key.

    Is it possibile to integrate with your menu this kind of feature? I think is really important.

    • Hi Lorenzo,

      We see the feature you mention is a good tweak for UX. However, for our current approach, it will require pretty heavy customisation to integrate the JQuery library you mentioned. At present, we do not use JS to handle menu functionalities, so integrating jQuery will need to change html markup and related CSS not only for desktop, but also responsive cases.
