Configure animation settings for the blocks and check the configuration in the demo. Enable blocks for the default top links: My Account, My cart, My Wishlist and Log In. Create custom top links and edit the content of the pop-up in the WYSIWYG editor. Enable the fixed menu feature for top links to take a permanent place in the screen.

In Overlay menu, select if you want the overlay to appear when hovering over the top menu link.
In the next Default Links Settings area, configure default top links.
Select Dropdown for pop-up block to appear. Blocks for Checkout and Log out links are not necessary; the only options are therefore Enable and Disable.

Finally, in Wishlist Link Settings area, enter the maximum number of items being displayed in the My Wishlist block.
