The new BYU menu is sleek and unencumbered by layers and complex routes that we saw in megamenus. It is a simple menu that provides clear, accessible navigation. It is also very responsive. On mobile, it displays header links and the searchbar in this dropdown menu.
Please note that the BYU Theme does not include dropdown menus. If there are more than 6 menu items, additional menu items can be displayed in a MORE dropdown.
You can view the demo page, which includes several code implementation options. View the menu demo.

There has been some research showing that complex mega menus can be confusing and unpleasant in the user's experience.
