Select a Menu
By default, the theme will include your Main menu. To switch to another menu, click Change.
Menu position (Basic header)
If you're using the Basic header layout (Theme settings > Layout), choose an option for the Navigation layout portion. Display the menu items aligned horizontally with the logo (Inside header) or below the logo (Below header).
Check out Shopify's guide for setting up drop-down menus.
Add a Mega Navigation Menu
Click the toggle beside Header to reveal the blocks. Click the preloaded Mega navigation block to set up a mega navigation menu. This task requires at least one dropdown menu, so create one in the Navigation admin if absent.
Connect a menu item

The mega navigation also includes promotional Custom image blocks to highlight certain sales.
Click Select Image, then add the desired Text and Link.
Using the Position dropdown, specify how this custom image will display with your mega navigation links. There are two options, positioning the Custom image before or after the menu columns:
