This guideline helps you create the header menu with Base Item, Dropdown Item and Mega menu Item.

Go to Header inline > Add block > choose a block that you want.


1. Base Item

This is a simple menu item, you can choose the URL to redirect when the customers click on the item.


2. Dropdown Item

With Dropdown Item, it allows you to select only one menu to show as a dropdown.

You need to create the menu in Online Store > Navigation:


Note: Shopify allows you to create a Navigation up to 3 levels, so the maximum level for dropdown is 3.

This is dropdown layout in Kalles, Ocolus theme (sub-menu on the right side)


This is dropdown layout for Gecko, Unsen theme (sub-menu under the parent item)


3. Mega item

Mega menu is a type of expandable menu in which multiple choices are displayed in a drop-down layout. It is a great design choice to accommodate a large number of options or to display lower-level pages that appear in the menu Header.

This is an example of a mega menu:

3.1. Connect Header Inline and Mega Menu

To create Mega menu, you need to connect the Mega Item of Header Inline and Mega Menu(Parent) of the Mega Menu by choosing the same ID.

There is a total of 16 IDs here, from #1 to #16. It means you can create up to 16 mega menus.

For example, Header Inline: Mega Item - SHOP - the ID to connect is #2;


The Mega Menu: Mega Menu (parent) to connect with this header needs to set ID #2.


3.2. How to add content for Mega menu?

To add content to Mega menu, please put the child blocks below Mega Menu (Parent).


Mega menu has many child blocks, click Mega menu > Add block:

  • Mega Menu (Parent)

  • Linklist (child), Linklist 2 ( child )

  • Product (child), Collection (child)

  • Banner (child), Blogs (child)

  • HTML (child)
