Click Save and view your blog. You should see a functional menu installed.

Try hovering the tabs, make sure the dropdowns appear.

You may delete or add menu or sub menu(up to multi levels). Make sure you add/remove the relevant code completely i.e. starting from the opening tag until the closing tag. Do the changes very carefully.

 

Renaming And Adding The Links

As you can see, the dropdown menu HTML is mainly consisted of unordered lists (ul) and list items (li).

Below is a code snippet for one of the category.

<li><a href="#">Home</a></li>

To rename the category, simply replace Home with your own text. As for the link, just replace  # with the Page intended URL.
