Menus

It looks very simple but many options are hidden inside this tab. You will notice that all menus you created in Joomla Menu Manager are listed here. Click on the menu name will open a pane with a drop-down selector. By default, the None option is selected. It means that Sparky doesn’t have any influence to this menu (until you change it).

When you open the drop-down selector, you will see various menu types listed above the horizontal line. Each of these options is one menu type supported by the Sparky Framework. Below the horizontal line, there is one or more “Copy from…” options. You can use this if you need to copy all the parameters from Menu A to the Menu B. This will save you from additional work on setting up both Menu A and B separately.

If you select any of the menu types, in example “Classic Menu”, a bunch of new parameters will be available instantly. All these parameters are specific for this menu type only and there’s default value assigned to each of the parameters.

Please read more about each of the available menu types in the separate chapters of this section.

To activate the Classic Menu type, open the Menus tab, click on your menu and select Classic Menu option from the selector. Many new parameters will become available now.

To activate the Drop-down Menu type, open the Menus tab, click on your menu and select Drop-down Menu option from the selector. Many new parameters will become available now.

To activate the Mega Menu type, open the Menus tab, click on your menu and select Mega Menu option from the selector. Many new parameters will become available now.

To activate the Horizontal Menu type, open the Menus tab, click on your menu and select Horizontal Menu option from the selector. Many new parameters will become available.

To activate the Accordion Menu type, open the Menus tab, click on your menu and select the Accordion Menu option from the selector. Many new parameters will become available.

To activate the Off-canvas menu type, open the Menus tab, click on your menu and select the Off-canvas Menu option from the selector. Many new parameters will become available.

For some websites, you would need several Joomla menus to be identical. By identical, we mean that they both are or the same type, sharing the same style and the same behavior. Instead of setting both of these menus up and copying all the parameters, you can select one of the “Copy from …” options and all parameters for this menu will be copied from the selected menu.
