13 Steps To Instantly Create Website Mega Menu in Flatsome WordPress Theme

A website dropdown menu is unsuitable for displaying more than 5-6 submenu items. In that case, we need something new to serve our purpose smoothly. To unlock this limitation, the WordPress website Mega Menu was introduced. It’s a mega dropdown menu that can contain many website menu items in an organized manner.

On the other hand, visitors can easily land at your expected destination on your website. You can create a WordPress Mega menu in two ways. Either you can install the mega main menu WordPress plugin, or you can go with the built-in option of Flatsome WordPress theme. The option is easy to set up. You can create a WordPress mega menu without plugins in a few steps.


Initially, your WordPress menus label contain a dropdown that can be long in case of your need. It looks like this, where you can see the PAGES dropdown.
