The Symmetry theme supports both a standard 3 tier drop-down navigation and full-width mega menu.
The theme switches the menu into a full-width mega menu when every link inside a dropdown also has a dropdown.
To make mega dropdowns, like the one in this demo store, you need to create Nested Navigation as follows. Under the menu item, you'd like the mega menu to drop down from, add as many title links as you like. Each of these title links must then have their own items nested inside for the dropdown menu to turn into a mega dropdown menu:
This article explains more about creating a mega menu.
Add other menus in your store following the usual Shopify method explained here.
We have updated the search bar with some new features in the latest version of symmetry 4.11.2. You can now create navigation menus that will display when the search bar opened to give you more options to put product or pages in front of customers eyes.
Add an announcement bar at the top of your Symmetry Shopify theme site, to promote your latest offers - add a link to a specific product or offer page, and choose a colour for the bar.
Cross Page Promotions
Choose to show up to 4 "cross-page promotions" to highlight your services and help customers to navigate your store. The theme includes a built-in list of icons, or you can add in your own image or icon instead!
To show only 3 promotions or to change to your own icons, just delete one of the four and then add in your new icon, text and link. These will show in the promotional bar above the footer.
Menu Image Promotion
Note: You can only show 1 promo image in each drop-down menu. If you try to add more, the most recent one will display while the other will not.
To show promotional images in your main menu, you will want to click header and scroll to the bottom and select 'Add Menu promotion'. Now here is very important and it's where many make the mistake. Make sure to enter the dropdown menu name that you want the image to appear under. So for example (e.g. Shop) then add your image, link and text.
Payment icons are pulled directly from Shopify based on your payment settings.
Footer text such as "Powered by Shopify" can be edited in the Language Editor.
