Mega Menu and Event System
|June 27, 2013||Posted by alex under News, Programming|
We’ve recently completed some work for a new client of ours: CG Architect, the leading online magazine, hub and resource for architectural and visual design professionals.
The two new features that we will focus on today are the “mega menu” and an event system.
The modular nature of the mega menu permits site administrators to take full control over the menu content. Administrators can edit the menu by adding and removing different content modules which can affect not only the posts which the menu displays but also the layout. Different modules can add or remove columns, pull posts from different categories, etc.
For administrators wanting to go the extra mile in terms of customization, the menu system also allows for the implementation of HTML content.
Alternatively, the menu will by default populate itself with pertinent posts. In this case, under the “Features” tab the system automatically pulls the latest posts and populates the mega menu with them.
The event system is equally customizable, allowing site administrators to setup and plan events and prompt site visitors with reminders. The system is a great tool for site administrators looking to set up cross-sells or other actions that they desire their visitors to perform.
In the example above, CG Architect prompts users with a reminder of their eligibility to a free trial of partnered software, though virtually any offer or reminder can be inserted into the prompt. Once the event is set and images are uploaded to the prompt, it’s ready to go. Once prompted, the user can continue through to registration, after which the reminders will kick in. The system will automatically track user actions so that site administrators can monitor the event and its progress.
