Mega menus have long been more than simply a fashionable trend. They offer useful ways of presenting information and simplify the navigation in particular of websites with a large number of topics or products. We have implemented a mega menu for the company Metallbau Kreiterling.

Mega menus are not just a popular web design feature, they are also very useful: similar to traditional drop-down navigation, mega menus show the user additional possibilities for exploring a website. The difference to a drop-down menu is that, as a rule, mega menus offer a much larger area – frequently the entire width of the webpage – and provide many different options with only a small number of clicks, and they can even display icons or images. One major advantage with regard to usability is the fact that the main navigation can be kept relatively concise, with the mega menu functioning as both the second and third level.
Mega menus are particularly useful for websites that display a substantial number of products or are divided into categories or topics, or for companies wishing to make it easier for users to view content by means of presorting and a clear layout.
We have implemented such a mega menu for Metallbau Kreiterling. The website was created using the content management system Sefrengo. In order to enable the mega menu to be displayed, we developed a suitable template engine for Sefrengo. This can access all pages and folders that have been set up in the CMS and automatically display lists of pages or categories.
For website visitors, this means that they are offered a larger number of choices and broader navigation based on the specific context, and thus are able to find more quickly what they are looking for. In order to achieve this, it is naturally necessary to group links into related topics, as can be seen on the Metallbau Kreiterling website.
We are delighted that we were able to implement this website with Internetagentur Onlineformat and wish Metallbau Kreiterling much success with their new website!
