Share Article

PackFlash, the developer of superior DotNetNuke DNN modules for the DNN WCMS (web content management system), has just released the newest version of its Mega Drop-Down Menu Module. The new version provides additional options for managing content within the menu, provides automatic detection and replacement of the existing menu system, and includes additional starting themes.

We are very excited for this new version of the mega menu. It incorporates a lot of features that our clients have been clamoring for. In particular, the automated skin setup process removes a hurdle that non-technical users had to deal with.

PackFlash Mega Drop-Down Menu Module is part of PackFlash’s Integrated Module Suite called Constellation. PackFlash Constellation is a combination of eight core DNN modules that are fully integrated with each other. No other module suite in the DotNetNuke (DNN) market offers this kind of integration. The modules include News & Blogs, Image Gallery, Slideshow DNN Module, Friendly URLs, Mega Drop-Down Menu, Comments, Videos and Events Module for DotNetNuke.

The latest version of the Mega Drop-Down continues to push the envelope for the most feature-rich menu system on DotNetNuke. The system now allows the administrator to use their existing site structure to build out their menu in what is called ‘classic” mode or veer away from their existing structure and create “smart nodes” that can be more dynamic in nature with data rules. This functionality allows for multiple styles of menu management - one that has the system automatically build out the hierarchy of their menu without thinking about it as well as provides the option of getting more sophisticated and building rules for how the menu should be built out. Both options still allow for HTML content to be added to the menus for an appealing design and user experience. The focus is on providing as much user control of the menu system as possible.

Version 3.2 of PackFlash Mega Menu also provides large upgrades to workflow and assistance to get the system up and running by automatically detecting the menu system that is used by a skin (template) within DotNetNuke and replacing it with the PackFlash Mega Menu. This saves the administrator from requiring HTML and knowledge of how the template was built, and removes a barrier for those who are not technically inclined The Mega Menu Module also allows for the creation of multiple versions of its new version in addition to providing the means to share the menu in preview mode.

Also new with version 3.2, PackFlash has created additional themes for the Mega Menu to show off features and give examples of how it can be used. These great-looking themes can be used "as is" for those who are trying to get up and running quickly, or they can be modified and used to jump-start a custom theme design that precisely matches the web designer's vision. Eight themes are included with this initial release, but many more will be added in the future.

"We are very excited for this new version of the mega menu. It incorporates a lot of features that our clients have been clamoring for. In particular, the automated skin setup process removes a hurdle that non-technical users had to deal with. It should be a lot easier for people get started with the menu now," claims CMO of PackFlash, Jason Lichon.
