    Editing Menu

    The app supports the design of various menus, including the text icon, product, category, and image. Different types of menus can be displayed in different styles.

    • Text icon: Support editing title, description, icon, and corresponding redirect link of a text icon. After setting a link, clicking the menu will redirect to the corresponding link address.
    • Product: Support selecting existing products in the store as menu items. The menu will display the corresponding product image, product title, product price, and other information. Clicking it will redirect to the corresponding product page.
    • Collection: Support selecting existing product collections in the store as menu items. The menu will display the corresponding product collection cover and product collection title. Clicking it will redirect to the corresponding product collection page.
    • Image: Support custom uploading images, and setting the image position and width to achieve custom image menu design.



    Setting Menu Style

    Click Style to set the global style of the mega menu you set up. Currently, the app supports setting the styles on mobile and PC versions by directly clicking the corresponding icons on both versions.




Configuring Menu on the Page and Making It Effective

After building your mega menu, you can configure the menu to take effect on the header by following the steps below.

  1. Go to Style > Override theme default to configure the effective manner. You can check Apply to all themes or Specify theme to override.

  2. In the app, enable Apply to Store.


  3. Go to Admin Panel > Online Store > Design and enable mega menu Block in App embeds. After enabling, the menu will take effect on the page.




Updating Configuration Data

Suppose your configuration data (such as product titles and prices) is updated after you finish building your mega menu. In that case, you need to click Update data to update the latest configuration data in the app.




Introduction to Incompatibilities with App

  1. In the app, the Menu Split / Menu Collapse navigation layouts are not supported, applying such layouts will cause the menu to display abnormally.
    By going to SHOPLINE - Online Store > Design, you can select Design to enter the theme design page and then select Header to modify the corresponding navigation layout.
    After you modify the header settings in the theme design, the mega menu preview effect will not be displayed. You can click Save and then go to the store to view the mega menu display effect.

  2. The vertical menu currently does not support scrolling for viewing. Therefore, please don’t set too many data items to avoid abnormal displays for the out-of-width limit.

  3. For the Brooklyn theme template menu, configuring too many menu items may cause an abnormal display for the excessive height of the menu. Therefore, please don’t set too many menu items in the case of the Brooklyn theme template.
