Microsoft continuously enhancing the new features to fulfill the user need. So now we can branding and customizing our site without spending more time and less coding.
However, it’s only available in the SharePoint Online communication site.
Here I have created a SharePoint Online site where I used all out of box feature to make this site user friendly.
On the above page, I have added menu Items with Submenu to redirect another page easily in SharePoint Online. So we can add it in a very simple way.
You can click on Edit link to add the new menu and sub menu along with it will allow you to move up and down the menu very easily.
You can change the Theme color based on your requirement in the SharePoint Online site. To change the theme -> click on change the design on the right side of the link.
Next it will appear a popup where you can change the theme.
Now you change your SharePoint site theme based on your requirement.
We can easily change header in SharePoint Online site.
Once you click on Header, it will show you two layouts.
In My design, I used the Compact layout and I changed background as per the below screenshot.
In navigation, there are two types of navigation we can set which is Mega Menu and Cascading.
Once you do these changes, your menu style will get changed as per the below image.
We can add footer and enable or disable the footer based on the requirement in a SharePoint Online site.
In below screenshot, I have added a footer with footer logo.
After adding the footer, it should come like as below screenshot.
Now your mega menu is ready. So you can add Web Parts on the page to customize more and user friendly.
In my application, I have used a one-third right column layout to looks good.
After adding this layout, I have added the Image viewer Web part to show the images. On right side I have added the Weather Web part and button to show the current weather in the country.
In the next row, I have added links and recently added document Web parts on the page.
Next, I have added Youtube and News Web part to see the updated news and Videos on our page.
To make this page responsive, we have to take care of the position of link and avoid empty space. For good practice don’t keep 30 links or big empty space between the page.
This is all about the SharePoint communication site with Megamenu navigation plus customization of a page using out of box features.
