Storefront Mega Menus
Mega Menu functionality that ties in to the Storefront aesthetic.
I would love the ability to add Mega Menus to themes, whether that be a new part of the framework or a new plugin.
By Mega Menu, I'm referring to the larger, expanded menus that allow for the multiple columns to pop up during roll over and the insertion of HTML items (images, etc).
For a direct application, I think Listings is a great first install. Being a directory theme, it that will most likely display LOTS of subcategories and a Mega Menu would make this much more manageable.
When is the mega menu for storefront going to be launched?
Yes, this would be absolutely wonderful! It would be a VERY useful plugin and I would definitely purchase it. Some of the top websites (Amazon, Staples, Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc.) have this feature. I think it would also be great if the mega menu worked for top menu navigation, as well as sidebar categories. That would be AWESOME!! Oh, I so hope this comes to fruition. Thanks for considering this Woo!! :D
Any further update on this? It wasn't on your radar back in September last year but hopefully will be now! Many e-commerce stores use mega menus these days and it's a shame Woothemes don't offer this feature!
totally agree i have been waiting for this for ages . Woo promised this was in the pipeline ages ago. how many people havent even seen this last post and are just holding out for it to appear. come om guys - listen to what your customers want.
Mega Menus isn't on our immediate radar, no.
Thanks and regards,
Chief Product Officer at WooThemes

Update from Woo team on this please? Just let us know if you're cancelling on this - thanks!
Agreed, and it's a shame, but their current business model would probably develop this as a paid plugin solution, and as UberMenu is well established, very compatible, and only costs about $20, I can perhaps see why they're dragging their heels. Their plugin pricing is quite expensive compared to the CodeCanyon offerings.
Seem the link below bit the dust along with any hope of ever seeing this happen...
Seems obvious to me this is something a lot of people want and continue to comment about for the past 2 1/2 years yet Woo seem to be largely ignoring this...
Is there any update on this?
Seems to have gone quiet. Is this plugin still in the works?
Anyone know how the mega menu is comming along?
ETA or something ?
As you guys are building this, please keep accessibility in mind. This is where ubermenus drops the ball. Government, Educational and other such institutes in the USA are just shy of being required to have sites that are accessibile. Not being able to tab through the primary navigation is a problem. A bonus would be to be able to have tab activate the dropdown so you can tab through links in each section. Just a thought.
This is the best mega menu I found just click on the + sign on the left of slider pick : http://themeforest.net/item/onecart-ajax-responsive-ecommerce-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/3167538

In case anyone hasn't seen this... http://www.woothemes.com/upcoming-products/mighty-menus/
Should be like Ubermenu!!
Ok .. I'm excited! +1 on your woohoo!
Uber menu costs $16 ... hardly a ripoff! but then a mega menu is important to ecommerce (imo) so I imagine woo would defo have an interest in this.
