As I said in my original post, I could see where the areas are listed in the regular Widget setup page, but it's just a numbered list, I see no explanation of where the menus would go, based on which area you choose. Is it just a trial and error thing, to see where they end up?
I didn't follow the part about "a numbered list". Also the menus don't go to a mega menu widget area. Rather a mega menu widget area goes to a menu. If you click on a "Mega Menu Widget Area" under Appearance -> Widgets, you will see this: "The contents of this widget area are included as a mega-menu if this widget area is selected for a tab under Appearance → Menus"
The high level process is pretty simple (and is the essence of the instructions in my first link). Let's say you have a menu with 3 links, "Home", "Blog" and "Contact". These are regular tabs, pretty much like the "Navigation Bar Below Header" here: http://aquoid.com/news
. Now let's say you want to add a 4th tab for a mega menu. That tab will be called "Fun Stuff" and will have things like Recent Posts, a Search field, Recent Comments etc. So this is what you will do:
1. Go to Appearance -> Menus and pull up the menu where you had Home, Blog and Contact as items.
2. Add a new item to this menu called "Fun Stuff" and set it up as a Custom Link with URL #
3. Associate a Mega Menu widget area to "Fun Stuff", say "Mega Menu Widget Area 1". Set up other parameters, such as the number of columns (say that is 3). Save the menu.
4. Now go to Appearance -> Widgets. Drag these widgets to "Mega Menu Widget Area 1": Recent Posts, Search, Recent Comments. Add others as required.
That's it. Now when you visit your site you will see a new tab called "Fun Stuff" and it will have the 3 widgets underneath it (whatever the contents of that widget area are).
