I couldn't find a forum specific to the s5 Flex Menu so I thought I'd post this question here since I'm working with the s5 Flex Menu in Corpway.

If I set a dropdown to be 2 columns, is it possible to somehow determine what menu items go into the left column, and which go into the right? I know I can use ordering in the menu but here is the scenario:

I have 6 menu items. 5 are single (no children). For the 6th, I'm grouping the children and I'm trying to figure out if I can somehow get items 1 - 5 in the left colun of the dropdown and item 6 in the right column (all alone with its grouped children.

By default, the menu is placing 3 in each column and it looks awkward with a big huge white space in the left column.


Also, if there is an s5 Flex Menu forum, let me know where it is so I don't flex menu questions post in here anymore.

For future reference you could post things like this in either Joomla Talk or the General Forum as it isn't related to a specific Template but the Framework itself.

In regards to your question the Flex Menu works by dividing the amount of menu children into equal parts per column. That means if you have 6 children and 2 columns it will be a 3+3 split. The only way to determine the order would be to adjust the ordering and menu ID# in the back end for the order you want.
