The Advanced Menu Magento module allows you to quickly change the look of your store’s navigation by adding custom menu. Without this simple extension, you would need to thoroughly understand PHP and HTML (not to mention have tons of time to spend changing the default option) in order to alter your Magento navigation menu.
With Magento Advanced Menu, you can implement any one of several navigation options that have been expressly designed to fit stores of differing sizes and themes:
- Vertical Static
This is vertical layout which uses standard HTML "select" element. Suitable for large stores with a lot of categories - your visitors can see all categories at a glance and make shopping route decision immediately.
- Vertical Dropdown
Vertical layout for the sidebar! DIV-based dropdown menu which fits your store theme colors, without hidden nesting.
- Vertical Folding
This option includes a folding menu with hidden-by-default subcategories.
- Horizontal Dropdown
It uses standard HTML "select" element. Dropdown menu is suitable for large stores with a lot of categories - your visitors can see all categories at a glance and make shopping route decision immediately.
- Horizontal Plain
This horizontal layout incorporates DIV-based dropdowns without hidden nesting. Additionally, it can be matched with your store’s theme colors.
- Horizontal Plain (advanced)
This is Advanced Magento Menu module’s most sophisticated option. It’s best for stores with very large numbers of categories.
- Horizontal Static
