Mega Dropdowns

The mega dropdown feature allows you to fully extend the width of the dropdown and group the sub-dropdown items by a specific number of columns. This is extremely useful when dealing large menus.

You can turn any dropdown into a mega dropdown menu by simply adding a class of mega and an html attribute of data-columns to the top-level item. The number of columns for the data-columns attribute that can be any integer from 2 to 8. Example:

<div class="stellarnav">
     <ul>
        <li class="mega" data-columns="4">
          <a href="#">Item</a>
          <a href="#">Item</a>
          <a href="#">Item</a>
          <a href="#">Item</a>
          <a href="#">Item</a>
          <a href="#">Item</a>
          <a href="#">Item</a>
          <a href="#">Item</a>
        </li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
     </ul>
</div>

*Note: data-columns defaults to 4. If you specify a number other than 2-8 or forget to add the data-columns attribute to the list item, the dropdown menu will automatically be divided into 4 columns.

Extra

Open / Close Menu

You can add the css classes stellarnav-open or stellarnav-close to any html element on the page to activate opening or closing of menu on click.

Drop Left

For long dropdown menus and for some of the last navigation items, you may use the class drop-left to the list item so that the dropdown drops leftward. This prevents menu from breaking the grid and getting a horizontal scrollbar.

<div class="stellarnav">
     <ul>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li class="drop-left"><a href="#">Last Dropdown Item</a>
        	<ul>
        		<li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        		<li><a href="#">Item</a>
        			<ul>
        				<li><a href="#">Drop left menu item</a></li>
        				<li><a href="#">Drop left menu item</a></li>
        			</ul>
        		</li>
        	</ul>
        </li>
     </ul>
</div>

If this is not an option and you are still getting a scrollbar, you may also set the scrollbarFix option to true.
