Examples

Subcategory Type
Specify which category's subcategories to display. This saves you from having to manually create menu items for lots of categories.

Custom HTML Type
Supply custom HTML code as a menu item, for when you really need to be specific.

Static Block Type
Ideal when you need to re-use components in the menu.

Standalone menus for use elsewhere - not just topmenu
One possible usage for standalone menu is if your CMS pages can be represented and/or are meant to be navigated as a hierarchy. By pasting in the appropriate XML into your site's layout XML, you can create custom purpose menu trees.

#nav ul span { padding:3px 15px; }
#nav ul ul, #nav ul.shown-sub { float:left; position:absolute; left:0 !important; }
#nav ul .menu-vcol { float: left; z-index: 1000; }
#nav ul .menu-vcol > a { display:none; }
#nav ul .menu-vcol > ul > li > a span { white-space: normal; font-weight: bold !important; }
