We’ve just released UB Mega Menu version 1.0.5 for Magento 2.1.8, which we think you are going to like. Technically, this update is not just a Magento compatibility release, it has been completely revamped throughout LESS/CSS code base. If you look back at the original code of the old version, you can see that, this update offers such advantages as easier and unlimited customization. The version 1.0.5 introduces an absolutely new default style and restructures all existing 4 styles much simpler. Overall optimizations are to make the extension run smoother with the latest Magento 2.
And you can try it right now here.
UB Mega Menu members, just head to your profile at Ubertheme to download the latest version 1.0.5 and follow our user guide here to keep you up-to-date on what changes we have applied to UB Mega Menu.
Below I’d run you through the new 5 default styles -- a very brief Before & After changes in the Magento storefront layouts: Continue reading
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. Indeed, navigation can either make or break your site depending on significant design and development.
“Out with the old, in with the new.”
If anything, that mantra would best fit the world wide web and everything linked to it. And why shouldn’t it? As with the fashion industry, when it comes to the virtual world, a lot of trends simply come and go. So with several months already into the year 2017, you might well expect that many of those web design trends that have debuted or been in season the previous year is no longer the mainstream these days.
You wouldn’t be far off mark if you think that way, but it’s also good to note that web design trends and fashion trends have a key difference; web design trends aren’t just all about visuals. So web design trends aren’t immediately rendered outdated and obsolete after a year, unless of course these designs no longer work for the majority.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

Today I am super excited to introduce our 2nd premium Magento 2 theme -- UB MegaMall. I had chance to share you a peek of some key features we were working on two weeks ago.
UB MegaMall is great out of the box since its first release in Magento 1 and has been proven to be a good fit for large-scale eCommerce store, from digital stuff, souvenirs to fashion. One of the driving concepts behind this theme is giving possibility for listing a wide range of products, with rational promotional blocks. Whether you want to jumpstart your new Magento 2 build or migrate your Magento 1 store to Magento 2, UB MegaMall enables you to use the theme in brand new ways.
Like our first Magento 2 theme Crafts 2.0, our UB MegaMall will focus on three major Magento 2 extensions (All these extensions were developed from the ground up in accordance with Magento 2 code standard):
Today, we’re excited to unveil the Crafts -- our first premium theme for Magento 2. Crafts has been one of the most wanted Responsive Magento 1 theme in our portfolio. It comes with the beauty of simplicity, from typography, grid-based layout and structure.
If you keep an eye on our product development, you might notice our first Crafts theme for Magento 2 was initiated since Dec 2014. As can be seen on our Github, this Crafts version based on Magento alpha 1.0.7, yet we hardly find chance to keep ongoing updates to this free version because there have been huge changes in Magento 2 since then and our internal plan as well.
After gearing up initial built-in extensions for Magento 2 (UB Mega menu, UB Content Slider and UB Quick View), it’s possible for us to kick off the development of Crafts theme again. Continue reading
