October 7th, 2009New Mega Menu Examples available
We just wanted to inform you that we have released new Mega Menus examples.
If you go to our example page, you will be able to see 2 Mega Menu examples available, as well as download their project file.
The examples are simple variations of the vertical mega drop-down menus found at the foodnetwork.com and actionenvelope.com websites:
As Jakob Nielsen (the "king of usability") says in his article on mega drop-down menus usability, mega menus have the following characteristics:
- Big, two-dimensional panels divided into groups of navigation options
- Navigation choices structured through layout, typography, and (sometimes) icons
- Everything visible at once — no scrolling
- Vertical or horizontal form factors when activated from top navigation bars; when activated from left-hand navigation, they might appear as mega fly-outs.
How is this menu created?
- Each submenu is a single item
- This item uses the "HTML - Full Mode" option at its "Text" property
- Using full HTML you enter any content you like at the submenu item
