A mega menu is a drop down interface which is displayed below a menu item when the user hovers over the menu item. It helps your Joomla website be more navigable. Helix Ultimate Framework allows you to easily build such mega menus on your Joomla website.

Inside each menu item, you can see new tab “= Mega Menu“. And inside “= Mega Menu” tab you will see several switchers, responsible for additional features.

Menu Icon

By default, the icon will be displayed to the left of the menu item text. If you want to remove the icon, just select the “Select” name and save settings.

Custom Class
