Drop Down Menu Confusion

  • Updated 6 years ago
I'm trying to help a friend (silver member) who wants a hover style drop down menu. I've looked through the forum and tried the html generator links but still can't figure it out. I think I have the correct html but I don't know where to paste it - I tried putting it in an html widget but that didn't work. Is there anywhere that gives instructions that are easy?

Thank you!

Hello Veronica,

If you can let us know the reference to the menu generator you are using that will help.

Thank you for responding so quickly. I used purecssmenu - perhaps I need a simpler generator? The website I'm trying to change is nwbtc.com.

Hi Veronica,

purecss have very nice menus but they are quite advanced in a sense for yola sites. This is because the HTML has to be added to each page even though the CSS can be added to effect the whole site. It's not intuitive.

Any replacement menu does need to be added to each page manually for the same reason.

You would need to add the CSS into an external file and call it from each page. You also would need to remove the pages from the default menu.

I am happy to work with you on the specifics if you want to proceed. I presume you have Yola Silver?

Thank you Gop!! Which generator (that won't hurt my brain) would you recommend?

The website I'm working on is Yola Silver.

Hi veronica,

The generators are all quite easy I think, because most give you the feedback in a graphical form after you choose the various parameters. It's the placement of the files that hurts!

If you want to proceed with the purecss then we can do that, see how we go and if it becomes too difficult then you can swap.

If you can send me the files that have been generated. I can create a dummy site, see what happens and take it from there? This makes the steps very clear in a real world experience then it's up to me to expand on the explanations and directions if you like.

My email is gop@designscent.com and you are welcome to send the files to this email address.

I sent the file to you. Thanks again for all your help. I have to go to work now so won't be able to work on this until later.
