Drop down menus from the Navigation bar

I'd like to have my top navigation bar contain DD menus on mouseover. I've seen the ones highlighted on the yola site builder but the codes are from Dynamic Drive and to use these you need to access the section of your page which Yola does not let me do.

I read the tutorial on submenu's but this is an unsatisfactory solution. On the forums, back in '09 and '10 it was stated that the ability to add DD menus would be coming soon, but it's been years and I can't see a solution.

Any ideas? Am I missing an obvious solution? Thanks, in advance, for any advice you can give.

Sorry, it removed (added periods so it would show)
Yola does not permit you to access the HEAD section of your page.

OK, I guess I need some specific guidance. I see from the buildathon that this yola site: http://www.madebyhol.co.uk
has drop down menus.

Can a community member please walk me through how to do this? I'm using a Silver account.

Torynn, what a cool site you posted in that link above. That site is using the Yola Flyover Menu feature. Maybe you missed this post in your previous searches. Check this out: http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/try...

Perhaps I am not understanding, but I'd previously tried this (nesting the pages) and it didn't work. So I tried again after following the link you gave me here.

I nested three pages under one tab, but when I preview the page and hoover over the tab with the nested pages the submenus do not appear.

If I click on the tab it then shows the three links on a separate line, this is not at all what I want. Could I get some advice on if I've done something wrong, or if I have to publish the page first (perhaps the menu doesn't show appropriately unless I publish?) or maybe the layout style I chose does not support this Flyover Menu.

Thank you.

As far as I know, flyover menus are only available on the Free Styles and the horizontal second-level menu is available only on Premium Styles.

That site you linked to above is using Skyline (a free style). You should try out Skyline or SuperFlat. They are really nice templates to use and very customisable.
