I want to change my site so the buttons for each page turn into drop down boxes. Is there a way to do this or is there a premium that I can buy that does it already?

Hi Fr

It is possible to create dropdown boxes for your site navigation.

What you will need to do, is to create all your pages as sub-pages. We have an online tutorial here : Tutorial: creating sub-pages. Your sub-pages will not show up in the navigation.

To create your own menu, using drop-down buttons, you can add drop-down boxes for your pages.

You could make use of an HTML generator to create the code for your drop-down boxes.

Here is one that will do it for you: Create a dropdown menu. This website gives you a form to fill in, which you will add to each of your pages. You will have to include the text you want to add for your links.

To get the URL of your Yola page the easiest thing to do is:

1) Create all your pages and publish your site.
2) Then go to your published site and copy the URL from your browser window for each page.
3) Then go back to your site and take the pages out of the navigation (create the subpages)

Then fill out your form on the htmlbasix site and generated your HTML code. Copy the generated code into your site. Here are the steps:

1) Drag and drop an HTML Widget onto your page where you want your menu to show up. You'll find it in the Widgets Sidebar, under "Basics".
2) Paste the code from htmlbasix into the HTML Editor and then click "Save".
3) Save your site.

You will then have your own drop-down menu on your page.

Please note that you will have to do this to each webpage you create. If you delete, add or rename any pages, you will have to edit each of your pages accordingly.

We have teamed up with HP Logoworks, who can create your website, as they are professional web designers. If you would like to take advantage of our
Yola Premier service, you can read more about it on our website.

I hope you find this information useful. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

You can also contact us on support@yola.com.

Good luck with building your site!
