The Avada Flyout menu type is a full screen menu which overlays the main page content, activated by clicking a link/icon in the header area. The Avada Adventure prebuilt website used to use this method, but has been updated to use the Flyout Menu option in the Menu Element instead.
The Flyout Menu is only available when using Header 6 in the Top Header position, or with the Mobile (Responsive) Menu. It’s automatic with Header 6, but with the Mobile Menu, you have to select Flyout in the Global Options: Avada > Options > Menu > Mobile Menu > Mobile Menu Design Style. Detailed information regarding the various Avada header layouts to choose from is available here.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Any Child Level menu items will not be displayed on the Flyout menu. Mega Menu features are also disabled on this layout.
Flyout Menu options are found in two places. The main one is found at Avada > Options > Menu > Flyout Menu, while relevant Mobile Menu options for the Flyout Menu are found at Avada > Options > Menu > Mobile Menu when Flyout is selected.
Let’s look at the Flyout Menu Global Options.
