Big Day Release: Prestashop Drop-down Menu

Prestashop Drop-down Menu module offers a great navigation improvement. Store pages will be enhanced with a stylish menu, containing category blocks with products, manufacturers, images, video and any other information. Default categories automatically display filtered items – bestsellers, new products, discount products and more. There are plenty of menu designs and position variants.

Key features:

  • Extended drop-down menu
  • Four default automatically formed blocks
  • Custom blocks with any content
  • Configurable menu design, position and floating
  • Multilanguage and multistore support

Let’s review these features closer.

Hand meaningful information to your visitors on a silver platter. The extension allows organizing content into user-friendly and visually appealing extended menu items, appearing instantly on hover or click.

Default Prestashop Drop-down Menu categories include “Products”, where store items are sorted by type and displayed with images, “Sale”, “New Products”, “Bestsellers” and “Shop by Brand” with selection according to a manufacturer. Create your own block with any content using the WYSIWYG editor.

The menu is fully configurable. Choose its design and position, select the number of categories and items displayed, set if images are shown and configure menu floating animation. Select if you want a homepage link to be displayed in the menu.

Admin can set the module up in Modules -> Front Office Features -> Drop-down Menu -> Configure in the Back-office.

Module configuration

 

To configure Drop-down Menu blocks, navigate to Modules -> BelVG Drop-down Menu Blocks.
