How to create sub drop down menu beside upon hover on page drop down menu.

Recommended Posts

Hi there! I have a custom dropdown menu that appears upon hover on my main folder title. I'd like to create  another dropdown menu identical in appearance, that appears beside it upon hovering on the "Work" page title in the initial dropdown menu. This menu would navigate to two difference pages for two different types of work. Ideally either the menu expands to include these options or a separate dropdown appears beside the original one. Is this possible?


Thank you!

Can you share your website URL?

How did you do the custom dropdown previously?

Oh sorry, I thought I had shared!



I believe I created the dropdown with this code but I could be wrong...

//Stylized Folder Dropdown Menu
@linkBGColor: #9DD7FB;
@linkTextColor: #7C5AF6;
.header-nav .header-nav-item--folder .header-nav-folder-content {
  padding: 0!important;
  .header-nav-folder-item a {
    padding: .6em 1.5em!important;

You currently have a styled folder in the main navigation, it is not possible to create a sub-menu structure (a folder in a folder) in Squarespace. You can use plugins to create a more complex "mega menu" but that's very different. You could add another folder next to the + but that's not really what you're asking for. 

Please like and upvote if my comments were helpful to you. Cheers!
