In the navigation menu, you can create the following types of menu items:

  • Mega Menu: 3 or more levels of sub-menu nested
  • Image Menu: All sub menu items have resources such as Product, Collection, Blog
  • Dropdown Menu: 2 levels of sub-menu nested
  • Basic menu: The menu item has no sub-menu items

  1. Open shopify admin and navigate to Online Store > Navigation.
  2. Select the Main menu with "main-menu" handle.
  3. Click Add menu item.
  • Enter the name of the menu item in the Name field. This will be the text that appears in the navigation menu.
  • In the Link field, enter the URL or choose from the drop-down list to link to a specific page, collection, blog, or other content on your Shopify store. Add Menu
  • At last, click on the Add button.
