Create a drop-down menu on my storefront
You've seen it on other websites – a handy menu that drops down when your cursor hovers over a link in the navigation menu. With Shopify, you can now have this kind of drop-down menu on your own store.
Most Shopify themes come with the ability to create a drop-down menu in the main navigation of your store.
Create a drop-down menu
From your shop admin, click on the Navigation page.
Click Add link list.
Type in the name of your navigation. A handle will be automatically generated for you.
In the links section, add your links. For demo purposes and to check that everything is right create a single test link to make sure everything is working properly.
Click on the Navigation tab to return to the main navigation page.
Click on Main Menu.
Click Add another link button.
Add a new link and name it to match the new linklist you already created.
Take a look at your site and see your brand new drop-down menu and its one test link.
If you have successfully completed that, go back into your newly created link list, remove your test link and add in your actual links.
My drop-down menu won't work with non-English characters
If the name of you linklist uses characters from Arabic, Hebrew or Cyrillic alphabet, or is in Chinese or Japanese, chances are (unless you are using the New Standard theme), that your drop-down menu will not work.
