Note: The menu provided by this extension is for use on tablet and desktop screens. For a menu that is shown on smaller screens, we recommend the Responsive Side Menu integrated inside the project_theme.

Installation / Integration

  • Include the TypoScript in Configuration/TypoScript/Frontend/setup.typoscript in your theme.
  • Add a column to your Backend Layout where the menu items will be stored. This column needs to have the colPos 594.
  • Add proper stylings (You can import the _megaMenu.scss file in your theme to get the basic styles upon which you can then build your design.)
  • Import the megaMenu.js module in your theme and activate the menu by calling the MegaMenu constructor. You need to pass a reference to your main navigation element as the parameter, and the language base.


new Megamenu(document.getElementById('mainMenu'), {
    sizeReference: document.getElementById('mainMenu'),
    languageBase: document.getElementById('translation-container').dataset.languageBase

Options object

Hint: Some options will require CSS related changes inside the theme like the close button.

Enable static rendering

Add this condition to your existing `MainMenu.html` file to enable the option to statically render the megamenu. This option can be enable or disabled in the TYPO3 Template module inside the backend.

<li ...>
    <a ...></a>
    <f:if condition="{sgm:hasMegaMenu(page: '{}')} == 'true' && {settings.staticMegamenu}">
        <div class="m-mega-menu {f:if(condition: '{settings.staticMegamenu}', then: 'm-mega-menu--static')}">
            <div class='m-mega-menu__flyout'>
                <sgm:getMenuContent pid='{}' />

Responsive Side Menu integration

Add the responsive-side-menu with the megaMenuReady event.

document.body.addEventListener('megaMenuReady', () => {
    new ResponsiveSideMenu(/* options */);
