OM Maximenu Installationa and Configuration

Installation was just like any other module, figuring out how to get it working was a challenge. I ran into the following problems and came up with a solution. 
Each OM Maximenu should manage a specific menu type. I started with the primary navigation, or main menu. The sub-links need to be served by a block. This makes possible the use of images in your menus because the block content is served as the sub menu. Drupal core menus are served as blocks so, I  chose to start by creating new menus for each top level grouping of content. Content | Support Center | Forums | Etc... 
Style the top level links the local.css: 

Drupal Performance Tuning Modules

The first step in improving performance is to enable Drupal's built-in caching: Configuration > Performance

Set Minimum cache lifetime and Expiration of cached pages options to rebuilt system caches and keep Drupal up-to-date with data stored in the cache and the data stored in the database. Caching can expose the system to cached data being out of sync with data stored directly in the database. 

Additional Performance related projects to consider depending on usage scenario.

Rendering PPT and PDF directly in a web browser - in a popup preview window rather than having to download the files first. 

Want to avoid having to convert to SWF. Prefer HTML5 rendering.
