UberMenu Control Panel > Main UberMenu Configuration > Position & Layout > Submenus

The majority of submenu configuration is done through the individual menu item submenu settings, but there are a few settings to be configured in the Control Panel.

Submenu Bounds

By default, the submenu will not be able to exceed the bounds of your menu bar. That means that the left edge of the submenu can’t be any further left than the left edge of the menu bar, and the right edge of the submenu can’t be any further right than the right edge of the submenu.

All submenus in a menu must be bound to the same extents.

Menu Bar Bounds

This submenu is bounded to its menu bar. The submenu cannot be any wider than the width created by the top level items.

Inner Menu Bar Bounds

The submenu is bounded to the inner menu bar. Mostly useful when centering the inner menu bar.

Unbounded submenus

This is the same menu, unbounded

When set to Unbounded (by the menu bar), the submenu can extend to the width of the next non-statically positioned element in its ancestor tree. It will expand to the extents of the viewport only if all ancestors which are narrower than the viewport are positioned statically, as in this case (also unbounded)

The extents to which the menu can expand is dictated by the theme, and is not something that UberMenu can control.

When you wrap your submenu items in Rows, you can create this centered effect:

Submenu Row Width

This setting sets the width of a Row menu item in your submenu. Generally you would want to set this to the width of your content, and likely matches the Inner Menu Bar Width if you are using that setting as well. This value is used to center the submenu contents properly.

Mega Submenu Max Height

If you have a lot of content in your submenus, you may want to adjust the maximum height. The default is 600px. Once the height of your content exceeds this max height, a scrollbar will appear. This allows content that otherwise might be inaccessible (off the screen) to be accessed.
