15 Oct 9+ Best WordPress Mega Menu Plugins 2020 to Enhance Navigation
If normal Menu over WordPress isn’t able to fulfill high requirements at your end, then you probably need to look for Mega Menu and many plugins can help you all the same. Here I’m with a collection of best WordPress Mega Menu plugins that are sailing great in 2020. There is a difference between regular and mega menu and that’s mainly because of their capabilities.
A normal one can only help you add text links towards various webpages that can help in navigation but when it comes to another one, then you are allowed to add almost anything you wish. You can add images, videos or any other media file or add impressive looking options. All these things are there to improve navigation throughout.
Best WordPress Mega Menu Plugins
Let me now start with the collection and I hope you find at least one of them matching with the requirement list at your end. Many of such plugins are premium because of kind of features it needs to have while I’ll also come up with free ones.
This is our first and foremost plugin that comes at a price of $18 and developed by a premium developer. It comes with lots of features like fully responsive, flexible layouts, advanced content, mobile optimized, enhanced user interface, dynamic item generation and easy to optimize. All these features form the basic structure for the powerful Menu that can be developed, and I can assure you that you will be able to create not just working but also elegant looking Menus with it.
It’s compatible with latest WordPress script version and supports most common themes around. Adding media content like images, videos is easy, and you can even add Shortcodes and widgets. My favorite part is that it allows users to add Map to the Menu. A search bar or contact form can be added along as well. It even supports Tabbed Menus.
With its dynamic item generation tool, it can help you create unique things with a single click. The whole tool is powered by an enhanced and simply looking powerful tool which is itself very special. With all these features and tools, it comes with very elegant graphics elements and so overall makes it the number one Mega Menu plugin in 2015.
Hero menu is one of the most elegant mega menus straight out the box. Currently, we are building a custom theme for one of our niche projects and are working to implement this in our theme. The other plugins mentioned here are superb at what they do but straight out the box this plugin fit with the current theme design we have.
Okay, let’s have a look at what makes Hero Menu so great?
It is super easy to use and setup within a few minutes. What we like most is the drag and drag feature that allows us to customize it to our requirement. If you sell products through WooCommerce, then you will be happy to know that it supports products in the dropdown menu.
If you are not good at choosing a color combination that goes great together, not to worry there is a beautiful section of preset colors to choose from.
With Hero Menu you can easily add:
- recent post
- plain text or HTML
- contact form
- images and much more.
WP Mega Menu
WP Mega menu is one of my favorites for many reasons the first on being its ease of use with no complicated setup. That being said you do get a fair bit of configuration option to create something beautiful. Wp Mega menu loads with ajax so you get a smooth loading effect improving your user experience.
Mega Main Menu
This is our next selection that is available at a price of $14, and it comes with dedicated support and proper documentation. Its dropdowns can support text, links, icons, interlinks, search bar, widgets, and media content. Together they all make the plugin be counted among best as I did here. It comes with 10+ different dropdowns, unlimited colors and over 600+ Google fonts.
Other noteworthy features include sticky menu, icons, search tool, background images, 1600+ vector icons, widgets, shortcodes, etc. Together they make the Menu look great. It can change the way navigation section works on your website thus increasing the user experience that your primary goal is.
Supermenu is another WP plugin included here for your consideration. What stands out about this plugin to me is the ability to display your menu as you would on the default 2015 WordPress theme. If you find all this setup up of menu complicated then, Supermenu could be the one for you with automatic setup.
That been said you still have the option to play with some of the other advanced features on offer. The overall design is very desirable, but I will leave you to be the judge of that.
What’s also fab about this plugin is the ability to control the height of the menu as users scroll down the page. We have a similar setup here at 85ideas, and the reason for that is we want readers to be able to navigate our site easily without distracting from the content.
