  1. That's great, I hadn't found that example, thanks. Hopefully I can tweak it to behave similar to the other example I have based my current design on. Cheers David
  2. Thanks. Can you elaborate on how I would do that please? My HTML/CSS is pretty basic. At the moment, I have the following HTML for a drop-down list where Item 1 should branch to a sub-menu. <div class="dropdown-content"> <a href="#">Item 1 <i class="fa fa-caret-right"></i></a> <a href="#">Item 2</a> </div> I have the following code in the CSS for dropdown-content: .dropdown-content { display: none; position: absolute; background-color: #f9f9f9; min-width: 160px; box-shadow: 0px 8px 16px 0px rgba(0,0,0,0.2); z-index: 1; } .dropdown-content a { float: none; color: black; padding: 8px 16px; text-decoration: none; display: block; text-align: left; } Would I need to create new classes specifically for those items where I want them to branch to a sub-menu? Would the padding etc. be placed in the CSS or the HTML? If it goes in the CSS, how would I apply this to only those items where I need sub-menus and not to all items?
  3. Hi I am in the process of replacing an old menu on a website and came across the W3Schools menu guides. I have recreated most of the menu using the example and code on the 'Drop down menu in NavBar' page (https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_css_dropdown_navbar.asp) and I am really pleased with how it is coming along. However, my HTML and CSS skills are quite limited and I am stuck on two things that I am hoping someone here can help me with. I have done a few searches on these forums but not found quite what I am looking for or something that fits with what I have done so far and I cannot see an example on this site that achieves what I am trying to do. I need to add some sub-menus to the drop down items. For example, in the code given on the above page, the 'Dropdown' menu has three items, Link 1, Link 2 and Link 3. I need to find out how to have Link 1 (for example) provide access to another list of items, e.g. Link 1a, Link 1b, Link 1c etc.. Ideally, I would like this sub-menu to appear to the right of the source item. This also leads the second thing I have not been able to work out, but I think is probably a lot simpler. On the menu item that links to a sub-menu, I would like to put a right-arrow to show that a sub-menu is available. Whilst I can put the arrow on the item, I have not yet worked out how to right-align the arrow so, at the moment, it appears immediately after the menu item name. I have seen mention on some forum posts about li items and child-items but this appears to relate to different types of code for the menu in general and not what I have used so far. If it isn't possible to do this using the current method, I am happy to change to something else and any pointers, or links to example code would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer. David
