Menu Type

Mixxmag is bundled with 4 menu options, 3 of which are integrated menu approaches. These are splitmenu, moomenu, suckerfish and module. Splitmenu displays the 1st level menu items in the horizontal bar and the 2nd in the side column; moomenu and suckerfish display the menu items in dropdown lists with moomenu having a javascript powered approach; and the module options turns the menu bar into the toolbar module position so you can insert modules into the area (this will disable the menu however). You can also select none so the entire horizontal menu does not appear.

Menu Name

The following parameter controls which Joomla menu is loaded for the horizontal navigation bar, by default this is mainmenu but you can change it to whatever menu such as othermenu.
