Hello Fr.

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.

I hope this workaround is suitable for you. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
