How to Create Menu with Sub-menu For Blogger Without Any Scripts



by Zaheeer Khan.. 


This is a very nice horizontal menu in which its sub-tabs are displayed in two columns and is also made with CSS, without any scripts.
blogger navigation menu, css menu, drop-down menu
The "advantage" so to speak, is that the sub-tabs when arranged in two columns are not very long,

Adding A Horizontal Menu With Sub Tabs in Two Columns To Blogger

STEP 1: In Blogger, go to your "Layout" and on the "Page Elements" section.
  • Click on the "Add a Gadget" link just under your header image
  • From the Gadget's List, select "HTML/JavaScript" option.
STEP 2: Simply copy and paste this ENTIRE code into your widget. Note: Leave the "Title" section of this widget blank.

<div id='menucol'>
<div id='topwrapper'>
<ul id='top'>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Tab 1 Title Here</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Tab 2 Title Here</a></li>
<li><a class='submenucol' href='#'>Tab 3 Title Here</a>
<ul>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 3.1</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 3.2</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 3.3</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 3.4</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 3.5</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 3.6</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a class='submenucol' href='#'>Tab 4 Title Here</a>
<ul>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 4.1</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 4.2</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 4.3</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 4.4</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 4.5</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 4.6</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a class='submenucol' href='#'>Tab 5 Title Here</a>
<ul>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 5.1</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 5.2</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 5.3</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 5.4</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 5.5</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 5.6</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 5.7</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 5.8</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Tab 6 Title Here</a></li>

</ul>
<br class='clearit'/>
</div>
</div>
Customize your main tabs by changing the Tab Titles to whatever you want. Include a URL for each one if you want it to be 'clickable'. If not, you can just put a # sign where it says http://YOUR URL HERE.com

You can add or delete as many of the main tabs as you need, just make sure to copy the entire code for the main tab for each additional tab you want:

<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Tab 7 Title Here</a>
<ul>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 7.1</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 7.2</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL HERE.com'>Sub Tab 7.3</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
STEP 3: Now let's go a step further and add the CSS style in our Template
  • Go to Template > Edit HTML
  • Click on the sideways arrow next to <b:skin>...</b:skin> 

  • Then click anywhere inside the code area and search - using CTRL + F keys - for the ]]></b:skin> tag and just above ]]></b:skin> add this code:
/* Horizontal menu with 2 columns

#crosscol li:hover {position:relative;}
#crosscol ul li {padding:0 !important;}
.tabs-outer {z-index:1;}
.tabs-inner {padding: 0 0px;}
If you want to change color of the background of the tabs then go to Blogger Dashboard > Template > Customize > Advanced > Tabs Background > From there change it to your desired color.

STEP 4: The final step is to Save the Template and you are done!
