ShippingEasy-nav-update

I’ve done contract work for the ShippingEasy marketing site for six years. Maybe even seven…not sure I can keep track.

This summer, they wanted to overhaul their nav from some simple drop downs to a more robust “mega menu” that would more readily feature some of their…features. It looks simple enough, but there was actually a lot of problem solving. The site uses both WordPress and Bootstrap, and each likes to manage navigation a little differently, and neither accounts for this kind of drop down.

I ended up bypassing the WordPress menu system to build a custom solution so they can have this more robust nav system while also being able to edit it in the dashboard. I’m happy with the results, and they are too.
