Dropdowns in Site Menu

Well, I was browsing around, and then a lightbulb appeared over my head! I came with this idea: add the option to have CSS-based "dropdown menus" in the site menu, to reduce clutter but still have lots of site menu links!

Go to www.stricklandautomotive.com (NOT made with Yola), and mouse over "More" to see the dropdown I have implemented there. Also notice the small downward-pointing arrow. Take a look at the source code of the page to see how I got it to work cross-browser, and also check out http://www.stricklandautomotive.com/s... to see the CSS I used! It also implements a little JavaScript as seen in the page source.

Hi Techjar,

That is a nice looking drop down menu you created! I will forward this suggestion onto the Yola team for consideration in future releases. Thanks for letting us know what you are interested in seeing!

If you look at the source code of the whole site menu, you'll notice it's inside a TABLE. This is crucial, as using an unordered list would cause the dropdown to appear on one side of the page, rather than directly under the link.

If you do add this feature, there is the issue of getting the old sites updated with the new code. One idea is, if and when the feature is implemented or updated, the next time someone opens their site a box could pop up saying that the style is being updated. As with all the site builder "popups", it would be generated in HTML and block access to the editor until the box disappears.
