Now, we’d like to describe other backend changes implemented by TemplateMonster Mega Menu Magento 2 Extension. Under Products -> Inventory -> Categories, you can find a category tree. It is possible to Include each category/subcategory to the mega menu. There is the Megamenu tab available for each category. It allows you include each category to a mega menu as well as specify its label and CSS class.
Next, you create section where all subcategories related to the parent category are listed. Each subcategory gets a column, where you can set column width, enter specific class, select a subcategory and a static block, add products, and view selected items.

For instance, it is not possible to add external links or certain content types. But the functionality provided by the module is enough for every e-commerce store. And note that the extension costs just $69, so don’t waste your chance to save some money and implement better navigation.
