Mega menu

This topic describes the mega menu (the Responsive / B2C Header Template).

The Responsive / B2C Header Template, also known as the Mega Menu, is a menu template option that expands the website menu horizontally instead of vertically. This template allows content users to change the look of their site quickly, without needing to build such a template from scratch.

Standard header template

The Responsive / Standard Template displays Sign In and Language/Currency selection options at the top of the screen. Users hover over Products to view a vertical, hierarchical list of site categories, and over My Account to access options available based on their user role and site settings.

Mega menu header template

The Responsive / B2C Template, or the Mega Menu, lists the site's categories horizontally across the top of the screen. Users hover over a category to view subcategories and the rest of the hierarchical structure.

This template removes the currency and language options from the header. These two options are now available as separate widgets, and can be placed anywhere on the page. Insite recommends placing both widgets in the footer.

This template also moves My Account options under the user's name in the upper right corner. When the user hovers over their name, they can access the My Account options available based on their user role and site settings.

To hide the My Account page from the horizontal navigation, change the page's settings to Exclude From Navigation.
