You can use the general settings to give the position and dimensions of the submenus for the whole menu, but you can also set specific settings on each submenu.

  1. 1. General settings
  2. 2. Custom settings for 1 submenu
    1. 2.1. Edit the settings in the Maximenu menu manager from the module options (source tab)
    2. 2.2. Edit the menu item in the Joomla menu manager

1. General settings

Go in the module and edit the style. In the Styles tab >> Style , click on the Edit button

module style option

In the styling interface go in the Submenu tab >> Submenu >> dimensions. At this place you can set the submenus width and height, and position for the first level and second level of submenu.

Note that in general you don't have to give a value for the height of your submenu, else you may have some problems. By default they take the content height.

submenu general

 

In this example the settings are : submenu width = 180px + sub-submenu left position = 180px. This is the default settings that you shall use to start your menu.

By default in the themes, the submenu width is set at 180px and also the sub-submenu left position, like in this setting.

 

2. Custom settings for 1 submenu

You may need to set specific settings for each menu item and submenu. You can do that in 2 ways

2.2. Edit the menu item in the Joomla menu manager
