Installation of the menu

Just install and publish the menu like any other Joomla! module in the administration of your website. Set in the module options which menu you want to show.maximenuck menu en


The name here is the name of the menu in Joomla! administration.

Adding a description to the link of the menu

To add a description, you must put two vertical separators "||". You can add some description on any link item of the menu. Example :

Title of the link||Description of the link

maximenuck desc 1 en

Screenshot of the structure :

maximenuck desc 2 en

And the preview of the menu :

maximenuck desc 3 fr

Adding a module in the menu

To load a module, just call it with its ID. You must create a link type 'separator' and write in the title the call to the module. Example :


Screenshot of the menu item title :

maximenuck module 2 en

To find ID of the module to load, go to modules manager in your Joomla! website. The last column gives you the information :

maximenuck module 1 en

Manage columns

To create the columns in in Maximenu version, you have to add the parameter in the title of the first item in the column you want to create (or use the plugin Maximenu Params).


180 is the width in px of the column to create.

capture_menu_colonnes_maximenu6The submenu container adapts its width according to the columns that are inside (this parameter can be driven using the plugin maximenu params).

Attribute "rel"

We can add an attribut rel="..." on the menu links (to open the link in a lightbox for example, with Mediabox_CK we need to add rel="lightbox" ). To do it we must add [rel=ATTRIBUTE], example : [rel=lightbox]

maximenuck rel en

How to use the Pushdown layout

This is very easy, just go in the module options and select the layout "pushdown" as alternative layout. Then the menu will make the job and change the whole structure and effect to render correctly. You can use the same option to set any layout (defautl, fullwidth, nativejoomla, dropselect, ...)
