Dropdown Menu Help Please


Recommended Posts

I made a navbar (I guess that's what it's called) for my website. Horizontal. It has the look I want and it works. But I have client-related pages that will fill their respective navbars up fast, making them crowded, probably even falling off the right side of the pages. So I need to make my existing format into a dropdown type. I tried to integrate tutorial code I found online into making this, with bad results. The navbar background color (#000) grew in height when a submenu item dropped down, instead of that menu item alone being #000. Would someone look at my code and get me headed in the right direction with the current style I have?

 

 

<div id="navigation">
        <ul>
              <li><a href="index.html" class="active"><span>Home</span></a></li>
              <li><a href="about.html"><span>About Us</span></a></li>
              <li><a href="services.html"><span>Services</span></a></li>
              <li><a href="register.php"><span>Register</span></a></li>
              <li><a href="client.php"><span>Client Area</span></a></li>
              <li><a href="contact.php"><span>Contact Us</span></a></li>
        </ul>
</div>
 

#navigation {

    font-family: ambleregular;

    font-size: 1.1em;

    float: left;

    width: 100%;

    background-color: #000;

}



#navigation ul {

    margin: 0;

    padding-left: 62px;

    text-transform: uppercase;

}



#navigation ul li {

    list-style-type: none;

    display: inline;

}



#navigation li a {

    display: block;

    float: left;

    padding: 5px 10px;

    color: #fff;

    text-decoration: none;

    border-right: 1px solid #fff;

}



#navigation li a.active {

    display: block;

    float: left;

    padding: 5px 10px;

    color: #fff;

    background: #696969;

    text-decoration: none;

    border-right: 1px solid #fff;

}



#navigation li a:hover {

    background: #2F4F4F;

}



#navigation li a:active {

    background: #C0C0C0;

}

That's what I'm using. Thanks for any and all help.

Out of my snippets from years ago. You could try to adapt it to your needs.
