WordPress Mega Menu Plugin. Use the built in drag & drop widget editor to build your mega panels.

Documentation & Demo: http://www.maxmegamenu.com


  • Zero theme edits
  • Drag & drop widget editor
  • 6 column panels (widgets can span multiple columns)
  • Flyout (traditional) or Mega Menu menu styles
  • Menu Icons
  • Activate Menu on either hover (intent) or click
  • Fade/Slide/None transitions
  • Compatible with touch screen devices
  • 3 'down' arrow icon styles
  • Built in theme editor with color picker
  • Works with multiple menus on the same page
  • Works with menus tagged to multiple Theme Locations
  • < 1kb JavaScript when gzipped (also works when JS is disabled)
  • Responsive
  • Retina Ready
  • Safe: You can uninstall and go back to your old menu
  • Tested in IE9+, FireFox, Opera, Safari & Chrome (IE6, 7 & 8 are not supported but may work)

The technical stuff:

  • This plugin will not pick up styling from your old menu, but the built in theme editor will allow you to tailor your Mega Menu styling to your theme.
  • Your theme will need a registered Theme Location to work
  • The menu CSS is dynamically parsed SCSS. Developers can create their own SCSS file if needed - just copy the megamenu.css file to your theme directory and make any required edits.
  • The parsed SCSS is cached for performance. The cache is refreshed when a menu is saved or a theme has been created/updated.
  • Max Mega Menu is compatible with Widget & Menu Output Cache plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-output-cache/) as well as WP Super Cache.
  • Behind the scenes, all menu widgets are stored as standard WordPress widgets in a new widget area that the plugin creates.

Recommended Widgets:

  • Image Widget
  • Contact Form 7 Widget
  • Very Simple Google Maps (this only gives a shortcode, so install the ShortCode Widget and use something like [vsgmap address="your address, country" width='100%' height='200'])


  • Italian (thanks to aeco)
  • German (thanks to Thomas Meyer)

Tested with the 20 most popular themes, all compatible with the exceptions of:

  • Tesla: compatible but requires edits: open header.php and remove the second call to wp_nav_menu (line 130 - 147)
  • Vantage: compatible (but hover only)
  • Stargazer: compatible (but hover only)

Requires: 3.8 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.9.2
