What is a Mega Menu?

A Mega Menu is a drop-down list for a Navbar, which contains more items than a regular drop-down list. A Mega Menu allows you to have items separated into columns, images, among other elements that would not fit in a simple Navbar.

The Shock Theme has an Exclusive Mega Menu Feature, which works as a Custom Post, and this is implemented to work with the Menus registered in your WordPress, so it is possible to add a Mega Menu linked to any item in the Navbar in an easy and flexible way.

You can customize the Mega Menu content with Elementor and add any widget, which makes it even more valuable. Read more about Build Content
