Basic Fusion Parameters

Adding Subtext

Subtext Line is the option that allows you to insert additional text to the Menu Item Title. There is separate styling for this, making it useful for adding brief descriptions to menu items.

Adding Menu Icons

Menu Image is the option that allows you to insert an inline icon / image to the Menu Item.

Advanced Fusion Parameters: Columns

Menu Columns

Columns of Child Items allows you to determine how many columns the Fusion dropdowns are presented in. You can have anywhere between a single dropdown to a four column dropdown.

Item Distribution

Item Distribution allows you to control how the menu items are ordered in the dropdowns:

  • Evenly: If there are 7 menu items in 3 columns, Fusion will allocate a 3,2,2 distribution – trying to equalize each dropdown.
  • Order: If there are 7 menu items in 3 columns, Fusion will allocate a 3,3,1 distribution – maintaining the item ordering.
NOTE: If your Columns of Child Items setting is configured to be 2 or more columns, you will need to manually set the column widths and distribution, as outlined below. The default is 180px which is too small for multiple columns.

Drop-Down Width (px)

Drop-Down Width (px) determines the total width of the dropdown, regardless of how many columns are shown. This option is to be used in conjunction with Column Widths (px)

Column Widths (px)

Column Widths (px) determines the width of each Column. Separate each width by a comma. The final column’s width is determined automatically. This option is to be used in conjunction with Drop-Down Width (px)

Below are some example configurations:

  • Drop-Down Width: 480px: 160,160. Fusion automatically calculates the final width as 160, so in practise, 160,160,160 is the actual distribution.
  • Drop-Down Width: 600px: 160,160. Fusion automatically calculates the final width as 280, so in practise, 160,160,280 is the actual distribution.

Advanced Fusion Parameters: Groupings

What is Grouping?

Group Child Items changes the behaviour of child items in the dropdown menus, instead of creating a dropdown for the immediate sublevel, this option places them inline. See below for an illustrated example of the differences:

Configuration

NOTE: Grouping cannot be applied to root items, only child items.

Set Group Child Items to Yes to activate the mode. The sublevels well then appear below the parent menu item in a categorical type structure.
