Divi Mega Menu is a plugin for the Divi Builder that allows you to build Mega Menus for your website. With this tool, you can create complex mega menus with menu items, dynamic tabs, and any other Divi modules you desire. Divi Mega Menu harnesses the power of the Divi Builder, giving you complete control over the design of every element in your menu. In this plugin highlight, we will take a closer look at the Divi Mega Menu plugin to help you decide if it’s the right solution for your needs.

Let’s get started!

Installing Divi Mega Menu

Divi Mega Menu comes as a .ZIP plugin file. To install the plugin, open the plugin page in your WordPress dashboard and click Add New. Click Choose File, select the plugin file from your computer, then click Install Now.

Before working with the Divi Mega Menu plugin, there are a few additional steps to take to ensure that the plugin works correctly on your website. First, the plugin author recommends disabling all other plugins, especially caching plugins, on your site during development. Additionally, you should remove any custom CSS that may conflict with the mega menu.

Next, navigate to Divi > Theme Options > Builder > Advanced and disable the Static CSS File Generation option.

With all of the setup out of the way, let’s take a look at the Mega Menu plugin.

Divi Mega Menu adds two new modules to the Divi Builder, the Mega Drop-Down module and the Mega Tabs module. It also adds two new pages to the WordPress dashboard – Mega Menu Settings, where you can modify the plugin options, and Mega Menu, where you can add and edit all your mega menus. Additionally, there are three layout packs that you can download from the plugin website to jumpstart your design.

Mega Tabs Module

Now let’s take a closer look at the Mega Tabs module. This module allows you to add tabbed content to your page, either in a dropdown mega menu or elsewhere in your design. The Mega Tabs module cannot be viewed in the visual builder, but you can use the wireframe view to build the section and preview the design on the live site.

In the content section of the module settings, you can add each of your tabs. Each tab has its own settings page where you can modify the styling for that tab, or you can modify the styles of all tabs together in the general module settings. Under the Tab Extras section, you can add links and images to each of your tabs.

In the design tab, you can modify the body and tab text styles as well as the sizing, spacing, border, box shadow, filter, transform, and animation options.

Adding the Divi Mega Menu

There are many ways to add a mega menu layout to your site. You can set it to appear in a menu, or you can assign it to a module in your layout, such as a button or icon, where it can appear on hover or click. Additionally, you can add the Mega Drop-Down module and the Mega Tabs module to any layout you build with Divi just like any other module, so you are not limited to creating drop-down menus – you can add them throughout your layout as you like.

Before adding the mega menu to your site, make sure the mega menu has a custom identifier set. Go ahead and copy the custom identifier as you will need this to add the mega menu to the site. Additionally, make sure the mega menu is set to published so that it appears on the front end of your site.

Adding a Mega Menu to a Menu Item

To add a mega menu layout to your menu, navigate to the Menus page under Appearance. Expand the item you want to set as the parent item for the mega menu, then paste the custom identifier you copied to the CSS Classes field. Here, I am adding the Mega Dropdown layout to the Services menu item and the Mega Tabs layout to the About menu item.
