The best part about this Multi Level Drop Down Menu is that you can give it any colour you want because here we are using a transparent gradient image which can take any colour you want. Like:

Transperent ExapmleNow kindly make these customization changes to add your own links to menu:

  • Each TAB can be edited by directly understanding the following  HTML code,

<li><a href=”#“>TAB TEXT</a></li>

In each case replace the hash sign (#) with your page URL or link and replace the text with your page title. I have kept the page titles unchanged in the code above so that you could easily edit them by seeing the demo.

This is V1 of Multi Level Drop Down Menu. I will soon publish another article on this cool Multi Level Drop Down Menu. Till than stay tune!

Confused or Need Help?

If you need some extra help in removing rows or columns then please feel free to post your questions. You can discus it as much with me as possible. This will help others to better understand on how to make further changes. :D

  1. it doesn’t look like the above preview image. i put in an HTML widget below the “header” in blogger but it came out a mess. (horizontal)
    It came out just fine when I put the HTML widget in the sidebar but all contents are shown up (vertical). I hope, the sub-menus only shows upon hover.

    can u help me set it up right please….

    thank u.

  2. Ha Ammar,

    Nice script!
    I have tried your menu, is it possible to have an arrow on the right when you hover over lets say “department” in your example
    Cheers Rick

      1. I have used your example and modified it to my needs.
        Here’s an example of what I made:

        If when I hover the arrow comes up to show the next level.

        Cheers, Rick

          1. I haven’t solve the problem

            The example is made in photoshop if you can help me out that will be great.
