Mega Menu can contain just about anything you want it to. If you choose the right stack, it will display your main page navigation or, as 1LD's demo shows, Mega Menu can even contain Google Maps.
The fact that it may either be fixed to float at the top or bottom of your page, or displayed inline makes it especially interesting.
The Mega Menu stack can display as many dropdown menus as you wish and the menus can display as many columns as you can fit onto your page – it's all a matter of your column width.
Mega Menu is, of course, fully responsive and on mobile devices it morphs into a practical dropdown that only displays the submenus when they are clicked [tapped].
As with all recent 1LD stacks, you have a wide choice of fonts and icons and, as usual, the stack is highly configurable; once again, with so many options that I shan't be listing them all individually.
Position – Fixed, Inline
Orientation – Top, Bottom
Z-index – Someone went wild here and entered a number that begins with nine sextillion and continues with 21 nines!
Max Width – px
Margin – Vertical, Horizontal
Breakpoint – Point at which the menu collapses as mentioned above
Main Menu – Settings for Font and Icon sizes, Spacing, Padding and Font
Mega Dropdown – Content Alignment, Min Height, Column Padding, Item Padding, Link Size, Title Size, and lots more…
Header – Logo & Title, Toggle Size
Colours – Colour Settings for every aspect of the stack
Mega Dropdown Menu (Child Stack)
Column Size – Equal, Auto
Icon – Google Material Icons, Fontawesome, Ion Icons
Mega Menu Column (Child Stack)
Column Max Width – px
Custom Alignment – [Content] Left Centre, Right
Custom Colours – Colour Override for – Links, Text, Titles, Border, Background
NOTE: Mega Menu uses content overflow. In case you haven't set stacks to overflow before – When you set Mega Menu to 'Inline' your content will only become visible when there is content below the menu – i.e. something for it to overflow!
You can place as many Mega Menu stacks on your page as you wish, without having to bother about stack IDs.
Oh, and the pessimistic Z-index setting of nine sextillion, nine quintillion, nine quadrillion etc. etc. is totally unnecessary and will be ignored by all browsers* – nine will suffice in 99% of the cases. If your page contains that many layers it needs to be seriously examined!
Mega Menu is a great alternative to your default menu and well worth taking a look at.
*The maximum observed Z-index setting is 2147483647 for most modern browsers, and 16777271 for Safari 3 and below. Older Firefox browsers will not display elements with a higher Z-index than the max at all !
