How to Set Up the Mega Menu Extension.
How to Select a Category for Magento Mega Menu?
- Go to WeltPixel > Mega Menu Settings
- Mega Menu settings are specific to each level 1 category individually, allowing granular control over the menu design and functionality based on each category.
How to Configure the Mega Menu in Magento?
- Go to Categories (only Level 1) > WeltPixel Mega Menu
You will be able to configure a different display mode for each category:
- Menu display mode for each level 1 category: Width / Sectioned / Boxed / Default Magento
- Number of columns in submenu for each level 1 category
- Custom subcategories distribution - If disabled, the subcategories are evenly distributed to the number of columns. If enabled, you can decide the number of subcategories included in each column.
- Number of subcategories per column - Insert the number of subcategories you want included in each column, comma separted. For example, if you have 7 subcategories, and set the number of columns to 3, you can insert "1, 2, 4" to have the 1st subcategory in the 1st column, the next two in the 2nd column and the final 4 in the last column. Note: Any newly created subcategory will be added to the last column unless you change the distribution.
- Width of the submenu columns, allowed value is auto (E.g. "auto"). Note: please take into consideration the left or right blocks because these blocks will generate one extra column each.
How to Set Custom Links for Categories in Magento?
- Link - if necessary you can set a custom link for any category in the menu, including external links.
- Open in new tab - opens the custom link/category page in new tab
If you are using the option to add custom links in the Mega Menu we recommend to also use Google XML Sitemap Extension and exclude categories from sitemap that are only used for menu links and are not real categories. Applicability: You may want to add a category that links to an external website, directly to a product page, etc..
How to Set Mobile Menu Breakpoint in Magento?
- Go to WeltPixel > Mega Menu Settings > General Settings
- Mobile Menu Breakpoint - Insert the breakpoint when navigation menu changes to mobile look and behavior (value in pixels). Ex. 1050.
Note on applicability:
Case 1: You may need the mobile menu to kick in at a higher resolution than default magento 768px. There are mobile devices and small laptops with resolution between 800-1200px where your desktop menu may look crowded on small devices. By setting a higher breakpoint for mobile menu you will be able cover this cases elegantly.
Case 2: Some website designs use mobile menu for both mobile and desktop. You will be able to achieve this easily by setting a breakpoint that will never be reached by your users ex 8000[px], so mobile menu will show permanently.
Step 5 - Design Settings
- Enable - [Yes / No] - Enable to be able to set specific Design Options for the Mega Menu.
- Mega Menu Background Color - Select a Custom Background color for the Mega Menu.
- Mega Menu Font Color - Select a custom font color for Mega Menu items.

- MegaMenu-Page Overlay - Enable overlay on the page background to bring the Mega Menu into focus.
- Mega Menu Font Text-Transform - Select the Text-Transform for all items included in the Mega Menu.
- Font Size Level 0 - Set the font size for Navigation / Menu Level 0. Example: 20px
- Font Size Level 1 - Set the font size for Navigation / Menu Level 1. Example: 20px
- Font Size Level 2 - Set the font size for Navigation / Menu Level 2. Example: 20px
