Sub categories on drop down menus

Recommended Posts

Using Squarespace 7.1 (business package), I am trying to create a dropdown menu system similar to what is at https://www.100percentpure.com/ .

My plan is to have 8 main links, each with a couple of choices underneath (e.g. main link "Gallery" would have the choice of either "Art" or "Furniture" beneath). I would also like to have the main link be ("Gallery") bring up a page with all the products in both "Art" and "Furniture".

I have tried to do this a couple of ways:

1. Create subcategories off a store page (e.g. a category of "Gallery" with sub-categories "Art" and "Furniture"). This did not work because the main menu did not have the sub-categories as menu choices.

2. Adding a Folder named "Gallery" with new store pages named "Art" and "Furniture". This gets me almost there, but the main Folder does not lead to a page so I have to add a third sub-category page "Gallery" to encompass both "Art" and "Furniture". I think this is a problem that has been covered elsewhere with varying success (in the coding/customization area I believe).

As an added irritation, since I am reworking the store from a previous store, the new pages do not reference the categories of existing inventory which I have corrected the categories to match my new organization.

I realize there are a lot of different little problems here, but I couldn't figure out how to parse them down into smaller problems as they are all somewhat linked together.

I just came across this mega menu 3rd party plugin - should help you...https://snazzyview.com/squarespace-plugins/p/mega-menu-plugin-squarespace

I purchased the plug in but havent installed it yet since we are going through a website refresh. I have used their blog navigation plugin and it works great and they have been very responsive (i wanted some customization on the plugin and they did it). 

If you dont like that plugin, just Google Mega Menu plugins for squarespace - there are other solutions out there as well.
