BurnEngine Feature Request (Menu Composer / Mega Menu)

ThemeBurn SupportForumsGeneralFeature RequestsBurnEngine Feature Request (Menu Composer / Mega Menu)

It would really be useful if there were a way to do the following:

Menu Composer > Categories:
Having 2nd and 3rd level categories available to use in menu building would be highly useful instead of only being able to use top-level (parent) categories.

Menu Composer > Parent / Drop-Down Relationship:
It would be very helpful if any item from the “Custom” tab could be added below a parent item. As an example, you cannot currently add a custom HTML dropdown as a child of a parent Static/URL item.

Add a plain HTML Custom Menu Item:
Having the ability to utilize a custom HTML item/block (not wrapped inside of a dropdown) would be very useful in menu building.

Custom Mega Menus:
If there was an option for building a custom Mega Menu where you could include categories, or custom HTML blocks, images, videos, etc. would be highly useful.

Mega Menu Sub-Category Images:
I know that this has been brought up before, but if the user chooses to use subcategory images in a category mega menu, it would be great if those images linked to the category they are assigned to.

User Menu:
Inside of the menu builder, it would be very nice if we could add a dropdown that was for logging in (form inside the drop down) or going to the register page. It would be further enhanced if after logging in, the menu transformed into an account menu with links to individual account pages.

These are some of the features that I would really like to have for the Menu Composer if any or all of them are possible at some point.

Mega Menu Sub-Category Images that link to the category would be very nice!

Hej guys,

I solved the problem with the clickable images in the menu now. It depends a little on your menu you might have to adapt the solution. However, in most cases it should work and I think it’s quite elegant:

$(‘li.tb_menu_category_CgKd1′).each(function( index ) {
    var href = $(this).children(‘a’).attr(‘href’);
    $(this).children(‘span.thumbnail’).wrap(““);
});

Enjoy!

Thanks for your solution.

This certainly can be solved with JS, but I would much rather see this integrated by default. Also, your solution is fine for a single menu instance (in your case, it’s your category menu id CgKd1) but this solution will have to be adapted by each individual as well as for each menu instance.

I’d really like to see ThemeBurn integrate this feature without having to add 10 JS functions to get it working for a mega menu with multiple categories.
