To turn your menu into a drop down menu, simply create subpages for your site.

 

To create subpages: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > roll your mouse over the left side of a page in the list > drag the page to the right.

Subpages automatically appear in the drop down section of your menu.

 

Note: If your menu does not turn into a drop down menu, please delete your old menu and add a new menu to your site.

    I have followed the instructions carefully for creating a drop down menu and deleted the current menu. I've done this several times and it still doesn't work. Now I can't even move the pages to the right or left on the pages menu. I tried reseting my browser, that didn't make a difference.

      I just visited your website and we weren't able to recreate the problem you've reported on.

      It seems that you've successfully managed to add your own drop down menu 

      are you still facing the problem?

      Hi, yes I figured it out. My pages were set to "hide from menu" which is what made them not show up on the drop down. Thank you so much!

      I do need help with a template. I can't seem to find the template that I need for my page.

      I am trying to post recipes but I realize the way your templates are set up I may need to make a page for every recipe I post and that is going to cause me to have thousands of pages (if it was even possible). Any recommendations?

      Hi veronicanutrition,

      Please note that you can add a List Builder, which allows you to create and manage lists on your site. Lists can be used to build product catalogs, FAQs, restaurant menus, news and more.
       

      To add a list: From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon > click List Builder > choose the list that you would like to add (existing lists will be available for selection here) > click OK > choose the list type > click Add to site.

       

      Double-click the list to open List Settings. From here you can create or update list items, change the look of any of the fields of your list items or set your list options.

       

      You can find more information and instructions about how to use it here or watch the video below:

      Hope this helps! If you require any further assistance please let us know.

      Best,

      Hi,

       

      Currently you can add only one drop down menu to your site. The second menu (for the second language) must be created using buttons and unfortunately it is not possible at the moment to add drop down options to buttons.

       

      We document and learn from every feature request and bug brought to our attention. These objectives are immediately high priority milestones in Wix's product road map.

      Hi southcoasttoyandcomi,

      We are using Ajax Crawling as a way for the search engines to read your websites code. With Ajax Crawling, your content, data and design are merged together and extracted far easier and quicker by search engines.
       

      Using Ajax Crawling however means that accessing your source code is a little different.
      If you access the source code the usual way (right clicking and view source), you will not see your websites content but rather a code, <meta name="fragment" content="!">, to tell search engines that we are using Ajax Crawling.
       

      If you wish to view your website source code, use the below examples of where to place '?_escaped_fragment_=' within your domain name in order to access the escaped fragment version of your website. Once you are viewing the escaped fragment version of your website, you may right click and select 'View Source Code' in order to access your websites source code.
       

      Example site - www.wixexample.com
      1. Home Page - place ?_escaped_fragment_= at the end of your URL
      www.wixexample.com/?_escaped_fragment_=
       

      Example site - www.wixexample.com#!AboutUs/c2414
      2. Individual pages - ?_escaped_fragment_= in place of the #!
      www.wixexample.com/?_escaped_fragment_=AboutUs/c2414

       

       

      Please let us know what document you're referring to so we can take a further look at the issue.

      Kind regards,

      I'm not sure. I'm just the designer. I'm trying to clean up what was originally created using your service because that is what the original site was designed on. Is there a way I can look at the raw code and possibly find out the problem?

      Hi southcoasttoyandcomi,

      Unfortunately you cannot edit or change your site's source code directly.

      Please remove the menu object, and re-add it.

      This should fix the sub-pages to work with the menu object properly.

      Should you require further assistance, please let us know,

      Hi,

       

       

      The editor looks very different from the live site.

      Please note that you you did not select  dropdown menu in your editor.

      To turn your menu into a drop down menu, simply create subpages for your site.

       

      To create subpages: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > roll your mouse over the left side of a page in the list > drag the page to the right.

      Subpages automatically appear in the drop down section of your menu.

       

      Note: If your menu does not turn into a drop down menu, please delete your old menu and add a new menu to your site.

      We are here should you have any further questions.

      Hi,

       

      Please note that it is not possible to add two different menus to a Wix site, which means that you will not be able to add a menu in one language and a different menu in a different language. Therefore we suggest to create the second menu using buttons arranged in a row. You can vote for this feature here.

       

      I apologize for the inconvenience. If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Hi!

    I have a problem with the mobile version of my website. When previewing my site (it is not yet live) the drop down menu is able to drop as expected, but the page behind it is still clearly visible through it. This makes it extremely difficult to read the page names. Is this because my site is not live? And if not, is it something that I can fix? Maybe by making the page behind it dimmer or blurred so that it's clearer to see the actual page names.

    Thanks in advance,

    Katie
