Submenu settings


There are 3 types of Submenu: Flyout (tree) menu, Mega menu & Tab menu.
Click the pencil button to edit a parent item and choose among the 3 types.  



1. Flyout menu settings

  • When selecting Flyout Submenu type, your menu will be displayed as a normal drop-down menu. 

  • If your flyout menu has more than 1 level, it will show the next submenu level on left or right.
    You can change the direction of submenu level in Flyout submenu direction

  • You can also add background image in the submenu of Flyout. Read the Background image settings to learn more about this feature.
Although background adding feature still appears in Flyout submenu type, for better display, we don't recommend using this feature. If you still want to add image into menu, remember to check your dropdown bar size carefully.
