    1. I did notice that I needed to make the menu “below header” otherwise it did not look right.

      Otherwise, it works with an Elementor tablet, but I’m struggling to figure out how to control the width. “Content” width basically works, although for some reason changing the content doesn’t seem to affect the width of the menu.

  1. Excellent news!!! Will we be able to use this Astra controlled menu in Elementor teader templates? They have the nav menu element but it takes over styling and I wonder if the mega menu options and such will keep working?

  2. It sure has been a long time coming, glad to see we finally get the mega menu!

    Maybe I missed it but I don’t see anything about mobile or responsive and what it looks like, is there a demo or do I just have to test it on my side?

    1. Hello! I am sorry I missed this comment somehow.

      The Mega Menu is a feature made available in the Astra Pro addon. In case you have the addon already and aren’t able to get that working, please open up a ticket at our support center, so that we can help you asap. 🙂
