If you no longer want to use Meteor Mega Menus on your Shopify store, there are two steps you need to take:

  • Remove the app's code from your store's theme(s)

  • Cancel billing by deleting the app from Shopify

Remove app code

The easiest way to remove Meteor's code is to use the app's built-in uninstall tool, which automatically uninstalls the code for you. This tool is only available if Meteor is still installed on your store, so if you've uninstalled the app, you can either reinstall it using Shopify's app store (linked here), or you can manually remove the app's code (instructions below).

Automatic Uninstall

  1. Open the app admin and click 'Theme' on the left sidebar.

  2. Select 'Uninstall', and then click the red button for 'Confirm Liquid removal'.

The process shown above will remove Meteor's code from all your store's themes.

Manual Uninstall

  1. Use the Shopify admin to open the theme code editor for each theme you had Meteor installed on. You can access the code editor by going to Online Store > Themes > Actions > Edit Code.  

  2. Open layout/theme.liquid.  

  3. Find and remove {% include 'meteor-menu', load: 'head' %}, which will be within the head tag.  

  4. Find and remove {% include 'meteor-menu', load: 'footer' %}, which will be just before the closing </body> tag at the end of the file. Note: This may not be found in layout/theme.liquid - depending on the version of Meteor that was used when the app was originally installed on the theme, the code for the 'footer' may not exist.  

  5. Make sure to save your changes to the file after removing the code referenced above.

  6. Last but not least, delete the following files from the theme:  

  •     snippets/meteor-menu.liquid   

  •     templates/list-collections.meteor.liquid   

  •     assets/meteor-menu.css   

  •     assets/meteor-menu.js   

  •     assets/verify-meteor-menu.js

Cancel the app

To cancel the app's billing and fully remove Meteor from your store, you'll need to delete the app from the Shopify admin.

  1. Login to the Shopify admin and go to Settings > Apps and sales channels

  2. Find Meteor Mega Menu on the list of apps, and then click the red 'Remove' button

  3. Fill out the form that pops up and confirm the app removal

The steps above will cancel any recurring charges/subscriptions for the app, and the app will be removed from your store.
