I would like the "main menu" to be part of my "quick links" bar at the top of the site such that when customer cursors over the "main menu" (currently labeled as "store") that the menu appears as if it were displayed like the original default main menu style. Currently I am simulating this effect by putting a "main menu" block in the top bar and setting it as a click to drop down menu, but two problems with this:

 

1. It requires click to activate instead of cursor over

2. When activated, it doesn't display the "main menu" in the same way. Instead it makes a very hard to read vertical list and doesn't work quite the same. 

 

For comparison, I have the main menu currently showing on both the top bar and the main menu bar to show how they are displaying differently.

and 3. How do I remove or narrow the white space between the "top panel" and "header" panel? On my site above, it represents itself as the white space between the logo and the "top panel" quick links bar. 

 

Note: I am using multi-vendor edition, but thought these settings may be in the same place and have a broader audience?

 

thanks so much for your help!

Also, is there a way to make some "views" appear on the menu without creating a category and tagging each item to it? Such as "All Items" or "Newest Items" or "Featured Items" or "For Kids" and when click these it loads a products page sorted by some basis like date or price or manual?

You can create custom menu on the Design -> Menus page in the admin panel. You can put any URL for each menu item there.

Thanks. I went ahead and started creating some custom menus to try it out, but unfortunately the flexibility of how they function seems extremely limited.  

 

For example, if I wanted the menu to be clickable to load a particular URL, or hoverable to display an expanded menu horizontally, I don't think it can do it. Please let me know if it can and how!

 

The menu could have text links (and icons optionally similar to the blog categories with icons on my site?) and link to various other pages or product categories or "views" of products such as "all products" sorted by "newest" or other selections like "featured products" and ability to make a manual list in the back-end, how would I do this?

 

Does it require advanced coding skills? I am a beginner... so maybe I would need to hire developer for this if not relatively easy... something that could be coded by a competent developer in an hour or less?

Just create tree of menu items to activate the hover feature.

You can add the custom class to the "User-defined CSS-class" field and customize look and feel of each item. As for newest and features product, you can create corresponding search request and copt link from address bar.
