How to Create Drop-Down Menu in Joomla 3.1
In this tutorial I will show you how to create drop-down sub-menus menu in your Joomla 3.1 system quickly and easily. By the way, this tutorial works for all older versions as well, however the design and options layout may look a bit different like in the following images.
Ok, I pretend you already have some articles and have already added few menus, now comes the sub-menu part.
1. Create Sub-Menu
Go to Menus and select a menu category you created earlier.
Create a new menu item, choose the menu item type, add your desired title for the menu and go to the Parent Item drop list.
In the drop-list you will see the existing menu items, just choose the menu point you would like to assign this sub-menu and save your menu settings. You have to repeat this boring process with each new menu item.
2. Enable Drop-Down Menu
If the sub-menus are published, it meant there are already enabled, but here we are talking about something else. If your template support drop-down menus, it wont display the drop-down features, only if you selected that particular menu items that has sub-menus.
To enable the drop-down menu, you will have to go to Extensions > Module Manager and create or select the menu module you want to use for drop-down.
In the menu module editor go to Options tab and select YES for the Show Sub-menu Items input.
Save your module and you are done!
