How to Add Drop Down Menu in Blogger Blog or Website?

Hello Friends, Today I am very excited to share a very important tips for blogger blog or website. Actually I am going to share how to add drop down menu without any install any new template. We can add it by a simple widget as you add others widget in blogger. So it's very simple and clear coding. I think you are fed up to get some boring and long coding to add it. Some body suggest you install other drop down menu template. But here I am telling you here, that you can customize your simple blogger template in drop down  menu and can enjoy this facility. So let's start how to do it. 

How to Add Drop Down Menu in Blogger Blog or Website?


First off all create a map your URL and title which you want to list in menu. I mean decide which post you want to add your wishing list. Suppose you have four main  menu, Home, About Company, Services, and plans. you can keep your wishing URL list in About Company,or Services, what ever your requirement.

Here I am  giving you Primary Sample -  Just Edit your URL and Text which you want to add in Drop down menu.

So See in this Example - 

<!-- start navmenu -->
<ul id='cssnav'>
<li class="active"><a href='http://LINK.com'>Home</a></li>
<li class="sub"><a href='http://CATEGORY-ONE-LINK.com'>Category 1</a>
<ul>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-ONE-LINK.com'>SUB-category1</a></li>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-TWO-LINK.com'>SUB-category2</a></li>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-THREE-LINK.com'>SUB-category3</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href='http://CATEGORY-TWO-LINK.com'>Category 2</a>
<ul>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-ONE-LINK.com'>SUB-category1</a></li>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-TWO-LINK.com'>SUB-category2</a></li>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-THREE-LINK.com'>SUB-category3</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href='http://CATEGORY-THREE-LINK.com'>Category 3</a>
<ul>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-ONE-LINK.com'>SUB-category1</a></li>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-TWO-LINK.com'>SUB-category2</a></li>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-THREE-LINK.com'>SUB-category3</a></li>
</ul>
</li>

<li><a href='http://CATEGORY-FOUR-LINK.com'>Category 4</a>
<ul>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-ONE-LINK.com'>SUB-category1</a></li>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-TWO-LINK.com'>SUB-category2</a></li>
<li><a href='http://SUB-CATEGORY-THREE-LINK.com'>SUB-category3</a></li>
</ul>
</li>

</ul>
<!-- end navmenu -->


Note:

1. Don't delete any things in red text as I mention Above.
2. Don't Edit home Category just paste your Home URL
3. Now You can Edit you Next Category and sub Category as your requirement.
here I have shown above coding -  Just Edit you Subcategory URL and its name (As Blue) About Company (what you want)

4. Take care of <li> and <Ul> Tag.  if any list wrong then it will not work. so Edit your Menu list very carefully. You can Add Extra Categories and Sub categories.
