Uninstall app

How to delete all the Mega Menu Pro code

Installation of our Mega Menu Pro app automatically injects certain code snippets into your Shopify theme in order to make the installation process fully automatic and make our app work fast and smoothly. Moreover, during your usage, some embedded code may be pasted into the “.liquid” file to display mega menu on specific positions.

Unfortunately, when you uninstall Mega Menu Pro, we lose programmatic access to your store, thus we cannot remove the code snippets that we injected automatically and the embedded code you pasted into “.liquid” file.

Although these code snippets that we add do not harm your store even after the uninstallation process, you might want to remove them anyway, the following guide will walk you through this process.

Step 1: Go to “Online store” in your Shopify Admin Panel > On your “Current theme” select “Actions” -> “Edit Code



REMOVE CODE SNIPPETS

Step 2: In the “Assets” folder: delete any file that has “ets_” prefix.

REMOVE EMBEDDED CODE

Step 3: In the “Templates” folder:

– Open the “.liquid” file which contains embedded code you used to add

– Remove the embedded code
