Large Dropdown Menu for global nav

I'm working on a new site that has a large number of pages and nested subpages. I would like to create a dropdown menu styled similarly to the one seen here:

Depending on the amount of subpages per section, I could need 1, 2 or 3 columns of page names per dropdown, meaning each might be a bit unique.

Does mojoportal allow styling like this, to achieve a large, wide dropdown menu, housing multiple levels of subpages?

I searched but was unable to find a discussion already happening on this topic. If there is one, please point me to it.

Thank you!!

Re: Large Dropdown Menu for global nav

Something like that could be achieved using the FlexMenu in our latest version. However we don't have a step by step or tutorial for it at the moment. The ChildNodesPerUl property would control how child li elements are split into multiple ul elements. A good designer should be able to figure it out from the documentation and by experimentation.

This menu control goes a long way towards automating a nice mega menu type menu from the site map, but if one needed complete control over the markup and needed to inject arbitrary stuff in arbitrary places at arbitrary depths one might have to hard code raw html for the menu.  I suspect the one on is lovingly crafted by hand since viewing the source I can see commented out sections.

Hope that helps,
