How do you make a person stay in your Magento site without their eyes squinting or brows meeting, looking as though he is about to analyze the most complex, deep and meaningful painting? With so many pieces of unsorted, and most often unsolicited, advice on how to improve site navigation, choosing the best can be as easy as walking on a field full of active landmines. That’s right, it is never easy. However, with the right points, proper prioritization, and appropriate placing this can be achieved.

So web design trends aren’t immediately rendered outdated and obsolete after a year, unless of course these designs no longer work for the majority.
Floating elements, hamburger menus, parallax scrolling—all these became popular for some time until better design options have become available. While these trends faded in time, the trend for mega menus continues.
Apparently, mega menus are still popular among web design experts and developers. Wondering why? This article will outline 3 key reasons your Magento store would benefit from having a mega menu.
But first, what’s a mega menu? Continue reading
