[Pro] Best practices - okay to use a script lightbox as a nav menu?

Exploring various navigation menus and have a need for the flyout multicolumn heavily populated visual types. However, these things can be very complicated and not exactly fit into the standard Freeway schema.

Designing a page in Freeway and placing anything ie graphic items, text and graphic links, creative backgrounds . . . whatever . . . and calling it in a Scripty Lightbox or Spawn New Window method is easy and pretty much compatible across devices and browsers I’ve tried.

Are there any SEO or other negatives to using this kind of page popup in/as a primary nav menu?

This is something I definitely like to know too.

Basically I try to keep menus as basic as possible and even advice my clients into this direction. One reason is, that a maximum menu doesn’t fit in the “touch-world” today that requires simplified or even minified page-structures.

Another point is:

Hundreds of Menu-entries?

Nobody on this world is willing to read all that stuff (except of the Competitors) .

However I could think of a solution which is called Big Area Menus and can be found here:

… oops - forgot to note:

A bunch of simple links on a page (for the Lightboxes) are, as far as I know, not to be seen as a “whole page project” within the “google terms”. So google maybe treats your website as one-page project. So this indeed could be a kind of concern regarding SEO.
