Unlike Dealership Layouts settings, the mega menu in the Classified type mostly adjusted via WPBakery builder. That is why the first thing you need to do is enable WPBakery for mega menu, as by default the builder is activated only for pages.
Open WPBakery Page Builder > Role Manager from the dashboard menu.
After this, on the newly opened page find the Post Type section and select Custom from the drop-down menu. Now you can enable builder for anything you need. Check the option stm_megamenu to activate the WPBakery.
Now you can start your work. To add new menu items go to Mega Menu on the dashboard panel and click on the Add New button.
On the Add New Item page enter the title for your new menu, use the WPBakery builder to set it up and publish.
How to use WPBakery Builder?
Click on the Plus icon from the builder toolbar and reveal popup.
Here you need to open an additional menu and follow to the STM MegaMenu.
You will have three options here to choose from:
- STM MegaMenu Top Categories
- STM MegaMenu Top Vehicles

Each of them can be customized depending on the categories, vehicles and makes respectively. Let’s Create All makes section in the mega menu, to display all available makes on the website.
