How to edit my navigation menu?

Hi all,

I'm working on this site: and have the Yola Silver package. I'm struggling with two aspects of editing my menu and would really appreciate some help with the following:

1) How do I make the menu font fit in with the rest of the website font. How do I make the menu font Georgia?

I'm very much a novice on the coding front, but I've looked in the CSS code and I've managed to find and edit the menu font size, but not style. Where is it? How do I do it?

2) How do I make the menu a drop down menu?

Having watched people use my website for their first time, they miss the sub-menu pages (e.g. the "Menu" and " "Our Sources" sub menu pages for "The Food") I want to make sure they know they are there by having a drop down menu for each of the main menu pages. This may also be helped by editing the font size for the sub-menu pages, but I don't know how to do that either! That said in an ideal world when you hover over "The Food" I would like you to be able to see the two sub menus before clicking on it.

I've googled and searched the yola forum for answers to these questions, but some answers were a couple of years ago and don't seem to apply any more (e.g. where is the "edit navigation" button?!). That said, if anyone knows of anywhere where my questions have been answered that I haven't managed to stumble across then I'd also really appreciate being pointed in the right direction!

Hi Danni,
Without looking at your css code it is hard to give you specifics. In sounds like if you add the following line to the same section of css code where you changed the menu font size that it may work:
font-family: Georgia;

If this doesn't work, try adding
font-family: Georgia !important;

Here is a link with an example of the html and css coding needed for making a drop down menu:

Thanks so much Crystal. The first method for editing the font worked. I'll have a read into the useful link you gave me into the drop down menu coding and see if I can work my way through it!

Thank you!
