Menu Design

It’s been a while since we delivered any visual enhancements to our Menu System so here they are in Avada 5.9. We have included in the update two new Menu Highlight Options (Bottom Bar, a lovely little hover effect and active link effect that expands from bottom center to the full width of the item in a single, smooth transition. And the Color Only option, which shows nothing but the color accent on hover and active page, incredibly subtle and ideal for a vast array of design specifications).

We have also included a new transition for Mega Menus and Dropdowns in the form of Slide, expanding the choices from Fade and Slide transitions for expanded menus.

New Menu Highlights

We have two new menu highlights now available in Avada 5.9’s Theme Options Network. These are Bottom Bar (A smooth underline that grows outward from the centre of the menu item) and Color Only (A smooth accent color fade on hover). Each as beautiful as the last.

New Dropdown Transition

Added into Avada 5.9 is a brand new transition effect for Dropdowns and Mega Menus. This transition effect sees the dropdown or mega menu slide down from the menu rather than fade in, enhancing the designs of your menus greatly.

100% Width Mega Menu

Also updated in Avada 5.9 are the Mega Menus. You can now set the Mega Menu to take up 100% of the page width, not just the site width.


Further Element
Expansion & Optimization

Here are 4 areas of Avada that we felt needed a little attention in Avada 5.9. We have focused effort on small but extremely important enhancements to these areas of the Theme for your benefit when designing and building in Avada 5.9 and Fusion Builder.

Nested Columns

Nested Columns now behave exactly like regular columns in the respect that you can position the borders you apply to them, select the columns link target, add a border radius and add a box shadow.

Live Search

Avada 5.9 brings with it a brand new Search function called Live Search. This nifty little gem allows your search criteria to be suggested as you type into the search box.


We have included some new styling options for Pagination types to really enhance the design possibilities when using Pagination on your websites pages.
