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.

This menu type shows the first level menu icons as well as the second level menu items lined horizontally. The third level menu items and menu items from the deeper levels will be displayed in the drop-down panes, similarly to the Drop-down Menu type.

The menu items from the first level are displayed in a horizontal row. When visitor moves the mouse pointer or tap first level menu item that contains children, the children menu items (second level) will be displayed in a horizontal row below the row that contains the first level menu items. When visitor moves the mouse pointer or tap second level menu item that contains children, the children menu items (third level) will be displayed in a drop-down pane below the row that contains the second level menu items. The menu items from the third and deeper levels are lined vertically in the drop-down panes.
