Drop Box Help!?

Can you create a drop down box with internal links? For Example:

Dropdown Box
Example A
Example B
Example C
Example D

And by clicking on Example B it'll go to a page within the site. Another option I'd like to know... if by clicking on an option in that dropdown box, can you make it so another drop down box appears. For example:

By clicking on Florida in a State drop down box, it'll bring up a City drop down box with Florida's cities. I do not need these drop down boxes to be prefilled... if I must, I can manually create each one.

Hi Donald. You can make drop boxes. This is a drop-box generator:

I'll have to look into making drop-boxes within a drop box.

well... the drop box doesn't have to be within the drop box... but when you make a selection from the first drop box, a second one appears or changes it's values... If you've ever done an online application, you may have encountered something similar... but thanks for that link!

The first link I gave you will allow you to click on Example B and it will take you to a site.

Donald... I tried to do the second link one... don't use it.... it seems to freeze up your page. I deleted that post.

Be sure that you always try to code on a test page! =)

Well... I haven't had a chance to check those sites out yet, but if you have any other ideas, the more the merrier. The more options the better.

We do not have a widget that allows you to add a drop down box. However, you could make use of an HTML generator to create the code for your drop down box.

Here is one that will do it for you: http://www.htmlbasix.com/dropmenu.shtml. This website gives you a form to fill in where you have to put in the URL (web address) of each of your pages along with the text you want in the menu for each link in the box.

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

1) First 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.

Once you have filled in the form on the htmlbasix site and generated your HTML code and copied it, in Yola:

1) Drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page.
2) paste the code from htmlbasix into the HTML editor and then click "ok"
3) Update your site.

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

Let us know how you get on.

I'll keep this in mind... after I create the pages of my site then I'll go check out that site along with the others I was referred to and pick the best fit. Thank you Ruth.
