  • Show Menu Title - allows you to hide menu item title, this may be useful when you want to show only icon instead full title like for Home position.
  • Menu Icon - the use of icons beside menu items is a fantastic alternative that favors a quick visual option identification; and even the use of icons without text to accompany is viable. You can use font icons based on Font Awesome v4.3, it means that you have big collection of 519 icons to choose from.
  • Custom CSS Class - allows you to add Custom CSS Class(es) to this menu item.

Of course we suggest to use your own menu items types for real items like Single Article or chosen Component view. And Text Separator is great for showing titles of menu sections. Remember that in Helix MegaMenu Options you have to refresh appearance of menu structure to get final result - like in following example.

And the final result should be similar to following example.
