Custom CSS

Navigationpro provides easy and quick way to customize menu styles without worrying about further updates.

You can place _custom.less and _custom-variables.less files inside your active theme and they will be automatically included by the module:

  • app/design/frontend/Magento/luma/Swissup_Navigationpro/web/css/source/_custom.less
  • app/design/frontend/Magento/luma/Swissup_Navigationpro/web/css/source/abstracts/_custom-variables.less

This allows you to keep original files clean and upgrade to the latest navigationpro version without worrying to lost your changes.


Let’s make a dark dropdowns. Scroll down to see the result.

  1. Create _custom.less and _custom-variables.less files inside your active theme:

    ├── design
        └── frontend
            └── [Magento]
                └── [luma]
                    └── Swissup_Navigationpro
                        └── web
                            └── css
                                └── source
                                    ├── abstracts
                                    |   └── _custom-variables.less
                                    └── _custom.less
  2. Redefine navigationpro variables with abstracts/_custom-variables.less file:

    @navpro-dropdown__background: #4a4a4a;
    @navpro-dropdown__border-color: #444;
    @navpro-dropdown__box-shadow: 0 20px 50px -20px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3);
    @navpro-parent-item__caret: @navpro-parent-item__caret-light;
    @navpro-parent-item-level0__caret: @navpro-parent-item__caret-dark;
  3. Add additional styles with _custom.less

    .navpro-dropdown h3,
    .navpro-dropdown .children a,
    .navpro-dropdown .children .parent > a {
        color: #eaeaea;
  4. Save the file and run following bash commands to regenerate compiled styles

    cd magento/root/folder
    # remove previously deployed navigationpro styles
    find pub/static var/view_preprocessed -type d -regex ".*Navigationpro.*css" -exec rm -rf {} \;
    # run deployment command
    php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_US en_GB


Customization was done under Swissup/argento-luxury theme.
