Custom CSS for Removing Folder Dropdown Menu / Create Horizontal Sub Navigation Menu within Main Folder Page

Recommended Posts

Hello, so I have the goal of creating a horizontal "sub-navigation" menu within a main "folder" page, instead of using the clunky folder dropdown menu that is automatically created with using a folder. I want to achieve this all within the "WORK" page that you can see on my screenshot. I have already found a custom css that allows me to directly click into the folder, which is what I want, to then have a set horizontal sub-navigation within that page. Attached are two screenshots. One is an example of what I am trying to achieve with the horizontal sub-navigation, and the other is what my site currently looks like with the dropdown menu. 

Additionally, in the event that creating this horizontal sub-navigation is not possible, is there any setting in Site Styles for 7.1 to change dropdown menu styles? I cannot seem to find any options for changing what the dropdown looks like.
