How to create Mega Menu?

Author: Iris Nguyen 115 views

With the Shopify update, all customers are allowed to add 50 blocks to a section, which means there is no longer a limitation of 16 blocks. This is why the Mega menu configuration in Kalles 4 is a bit different from Kalles 3.x.x. Let’s stick to this article to figure it out.

In Kalles 4, you must configure for Mega menu both on Header Inline and Mega Menu. Header Inline is all Header title and Mega menu is all menus inside. The separation helps us when switching the Header, we can still keep all mega menu editing inside. A Mega Item in Header Inline is linked with Mega Menu by a corresponding ID
