I want to create a main menu bar for my drupal blog, like shown in image

enter image description here

Means, when i mouse over on the menu item, it should show, node thumb image, content title.

is there any modules available to do this. I tried in google to find like this modules, no luck. Please any one give suggestion how to do this.


This can be done using Views Module and MaxiMenu.

Edit: you might also need the Menu Views Module and potentially Nice Menus Module to achieve the perfect style you want.

I have not tested this but a Coworker built a client's dropdown menu with images this way, So i know it is possible. I just personally haven't done it =-)

I hope this gets you close!

Consider to use the Menu Minipanels module:

A system for building "megamenu" -style (explanation) dropdown menus using Mini Panels, which provides tremendous flexibility in what can be displayed.
There are two main reasons why minipanels are used:

  1. Usability: once an initial learning curve is gotten past the module becomes very easy to use.
  2. Flexibility: there is a tremendous amount of configuration available via minipanels and almost anything can be added to one - views, blocks, nodes, other menus, and even raw PHP code if the PHP Filter is enabled. Further, there are multiple layouts available and more can be easily built. Further, each minipanel can be customized differently, as can be seen from some of the example sites below.

  • You can create a mini panel and attach it to any menu item. It works the same way Panels module work. – Roni Gal Mar 8 '14 at 12:59
