How to stop the Buddha Mega Menu from crashing

How to stop the Buddha Mega Menu from crashing

The Buddha Mega Menu is becoming more and more popular among Shopify businesses, and while we’re not 100% sold on it, we do get why we’re seeing loads of businesses using it – it does look pretty slick and is intuitive for users.

Our hesitation with it stems from its reliance on JavaScript – it completely disappears with JavaScript disabled. From a technical SEO point of view, this can open up a can of worms – while Google is pretty good at accessing and rendering the JS, it’s not really clear what impact – if any – this has on how it treats internal links outside the raw HTML. This may be a non-issue, but we always recommend a menu that functions without JavaScript enabled to be on the safe side.

Anyway, back to Buddha Mega Menu. One of it’s more pervasive problems is its tendency to crash when you attempt to make a change to your theme code or publish a new theme, resulting in it reverting back to the theme’s default menu style. Fortunately, we’ve has found a way to work around this glitch in a way that’s pretty straightforward.

So, if you’ve got the Buddha Mega Menu on your eCommerce site, the next time you’re editing your website’s theme, just follow these five simple steps to stop the navigation from crashing.
