Max Mega Menu comes with a built in widget which allows you to display a single menu location within a widget area. Depending on your theme, you might have widget areas set up in the header, footer and sidebar areas. Using the following method we can add a Mega Menu to any of these areas.


Step 1: Registering a new menu location.

Most themes register a set number of menu locations (eg “Primary Menu”). If you already have a menu assigned to “Primary Menu” then it’s unlikely you’ll want to display exactly the same menu in a widget.

First we’ll need to create a new menu location specifically for use within the widget.

Under Mega Menu > Menu Locations, click the “Add another menu location” link and rename the location to something suitable.

We now have a new menu location which we can use within the Max Mega Menu widget.

Step 2: Assign a menu to the new location

Under Appearance > Menus, create a new menu and assign it to the new menu location.


Step 3: Add the Max Mega Menu widget to a sidebar

Under Appearance > Widgets, drag the Max Mega Menu widget (not the Custom Menu widget) to a sidebar and select the new menu location.


The menu will now be displayed in your sidebar. You can repeat the same steps to create and display multiple Mega Menus on your site.
