I’ve been working on creating a better menu system for my website http://www.ambrosi.ca and am trying to integrate Mustang’s built-in megamenu.
When I test the theme’s “responsive” menu, I noticed a few problems.
I’m not sure if the issues I see are the result of me having implemented the menu incorrectly, or if the menu is intended to function this way.
I have attached a screenshot with notes about what I feel could be improved with this layout.
Level 1 menu is clear, but Level 2 menus are not. It is unclear that “Software”,
“Photo Equip” and “Other Gear” are subordinated to Level 1. The Level 2 items
should be indented to show they fall under Level 1
The Salient Theme’s responsive menu and megamenu is extremely clear and functions perfectly. The menu structure is precise and the.user can instantly ascertain their exact location in the website. I have attached a screenshot.
Please consider improving the layout of the responsive menu in Mustang. It would be a welcome improvement.

I use distinction with color. Please see http://awesomescreenshot.com/0a84hq4uc6. Each submenu is darker color than the previous one.
But I will see what I can improve in this manner.

Thanks for noting that, but for people who don’t have very good colour vision, differentiating on the basis of colour alone presents many problems. I would think a better approach is to use a method similar to what Salient does- indentation. The juxtaposition (indentation) is instantly recognizable as indicating different hierarchies.
I don’t have any problem with colour vision, but honestly never noticed the different colours and found the menu unclear.
Please do consider improving this to make a great theme even better.

Thank you for responding to my request for improvements to the Mustang responsive menu. I downloaded the new update today. Very impressive response and nice change.
I’d like to see a bit more indentation on the menu, but its very good.
