Megamenu Dropdown

Bewear supports Megamenu Dropdown, with the help of two plugins that comes bundled with the theme namely : King Composer plugin and Bewear Extensions plugin.

1. Static Block Post Type

A megamenu item in Bewear theme is a Static Block. This Static Block is available on activating Bewear Extensions Plugin.

2. Enable King Composer for Static Block

  1. Navigate to King Composer > Composer Settings.
  2. In General Settings tab , make sure static_block is checked.

  3. Go to Static Content > Add New and make sure it has a button just below the title with king composer.

3. Add a new megamenu item

  1. Navigate to Static Content > Add New.
  2. Give it a title, lets say "Mega-Menu-v2" item. The title is not used anywhere in displaying the menu.
  3. Click on King Composer. It will display Browse Icon.

  1. Navigate to Appearance > Menus.
  2. On top right corner of your screen, you will find a dropdown menu Screen Options. Click on it.
  3. In the dropdown that appears, check on Static Content Blocks under Show on screen. You will now see Static Content Blocks listed in the left side.
  4. Choose the menu you want to edit. In my case I've chose a menu that is hooked to Primary Navigation location.
  5. Now check the Mega-Menu-v2 and click on Add to menu.
  6. Drag the Mega-Menu-v2 box and drop it under any existing menu as a submenu.
  7. Click on Save Menu.
