Remove app code

Follow the instructions in this help article if you need to remove the Meteor Mega Menus app code from your store's theme(s). We’re also happy to do this for you for free at any point - just let us know if you'd like our help!

📌 Note: This guide specifically pertains to shops that installed a mega menu in Meteor prior to August 22, 2023. Menus installed after this date use theme app extensions by default and do not leave code remnants in your theme.

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

    1. Note: 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 layout/theme.liquid after removing the code referenced above

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

  •     snippets/meteor-menu.liquid   

  •     templates/list-collections.meteor.liquid   

  •     assets/meteor-menu.css   

  •     assets/meteor-menu.js   

  •     assets/verify-meteor-menu.js

🎊 That's it! After removing the include tag(s) from the theme's layout file, and deleting the app's snippet, template, and assets, you can be sure that all of Meteor's app code has been removed from the theme.
