I was recently asked by some of this blog loyal reader that I should make a post on how they can add a beautiful drop-down menu to their blogger blog.  

Presently, there are many ways to add a drop-down menu to blogger blogs but most of these methods are sometime complicated or wrong. So today, a simple and easy method will be explained here on how a beautiful drop-down menu can be added to blogger blogs and how you can easily customize it to your taste.

1. Go to Blogger Dashboard  ==>Template ==> Edit HTML

2. Now search for ]]></b:skin> in your template. This can be easily searched for by usingCTRL + F.

3. Paste the code below above the code stated in the 2nd step. 


.menu{
border: 2px solid black;
margin:0px;
padding:0px;
font: 67.5% “Century Gothic”, “Bitstream Vera Sans”, “Trebuchet Unicode MS”, “Lucida Grande”, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size:15px;
font-weight:bold;
}
.menu ul{
background: pink;
height:35px;
list-style:none;
margin:0;
padding:0;
}
.menu li{
float:left;
padding:0px;
}
.menu li a{
background: pink;
color: black;
display:block;
font-weight: normal;
line-height:35px;
margin:0px;
padding:0px 25px;
text-align:center;
text-decoration:none;
}
.menu li a:hover, .menu ul li:hover a{
background: black;
color: lightblue;
text-decoration:none;
}
.menu li ul{
background: pink;
display: none;
height:auto;
padding:0px;
margin:0px;
border:0px;
position:absolute;
width:225px;
z-index:200;
/*top:1em;
/*left:0;*/
}
.menu li:hover ul{
display:block;

}
.menu li li {
background: ;
display:block;
float:none;
margin:0px;
padding:0px;
width:225px;
}
.menu li:hover li a{
background: ;

}
.menu li ul a{
display:block;
height:35px;
font-size:12px;
font-style:normal;
margin:0px;
padding:0px 10px 0px 15px;
text-align:left;
}
.menu li ul a:hover, .menu li ul li:hover a{
background: lightblue;
border: 0px solid black;
color: black;
text-decoration:none;
}
.menu p{
clear:left;
}  
4.Now save your template then go back to “Layout” and add an “HTML/JavaScript” widget. Then copy and paste the code below into the “HTML/Javascript Widget” box:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN”
    “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd”>
    <html xmlns=”http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml” xml:lang=”en” lang=”en”>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv=”content-type” content=”text/html; charset=utf-8″ />
    <title></title>
    <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”menu_style.css” type=”text/css” />
    </head>
    <body>
    <br>
    <br>
    <div class=”menu”>
    <ul>
    <li><a href=”#” >Home</a></li>
    <li><a href=”#” >About Us</a></li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Recipes</a>
    <ul>
    <li><a href=”#”>Breakfast</a></li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Lunch</a></li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Dinner</a></li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Dessert</a></li>
    </ul>
    </li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Photography<br />
    </a>
    <ul>
    <li><a href=”#”>Babies</a></li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Families</a></li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Seniors</a></li>
    </ul>
    </li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Crafts</a>
    <ul>
    <li><a href=”#”>Scrapbooking</a></li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Kids Crafts</a></li>
    </ul>
    </li>
    <li><a href=”#”>Contact</a></li>
    </ul>
    </div>

    </body>
    </html> 
5. Finally, drag the widget to the area where you want it to show.
