Is there anyway i can use this drop down menu on my website?


When i downloaded it, it was a zip file and said to upload the root directory. Can someone please help me with this? Or if its not possible, can someone recommend another place with slick drop down menus? thank you

Hello unfsifevisualteam,
There isn't a way to upload files to the root directory of your site so what you currently have would not be possible to use. Yola does have the option of submenus for Yola Silver account holders, to learn more about that option please click here: Tutorial: Creating Submenus.

If our Premium Style sub-menus do not suit your needs, it is possible to add a drop-down menu to the body region of your page using custom HTML. Here is a link to an article that tells you how to do it:

To implement this in Yola you would:

1. Drag and drop an HTML Widget onto your page.
2. Paste the code generated from the above link into the HTML Editor.
3. Edit the code to replace their examples with the items you want on your list - you need to edit the URLs and the display text.
4. If the items on the list are links to other websites, paste the URLs for each website into the example code. If the items on the list are pages in your site, you need to replace the URLs in the example code with the URLs of your pages. The easiest way to get the URLs is to publish your site and copy them from your browser window. Paste them into the code. Click on "Save" and republish your site.

I hope this information is helpful!

Kind Regards,
