Creating my own Drop down Menu;

    Sometime ago I was able to create my own drop down menu as if you scroll over 'Forums' you'd get a drop down menu to more links to click on.
    I didn't use any Add-ons or anything, I just simply used code.
    I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I need to do?
    Like where to add the code and what code to add and how to add more links to the drop down menu and also have the links in the drop down menu if you scroll over them they have links to them to.
    Example in a Drop Down Menu:
    Essentials. (Tab Name)
    Vote (A name in the drop down menu.)
    Vote 1 (A sublink to vote
    Vote 2 (A sublink to a different voting site
    Vote 3 (Another different sublink to a voting site.)
    Donate (Another name
    Donate 1 (A sub link to Donate
    Donate 3 (a sub link to donate
    Google (Another name
    Help (Another name.
    If needed, I'll use a Add-On.

    That's unusual, perhaps you made a mistake when uploading the files, or tried to install using the wrong XML file.

    Try again, following the instructions provided, then if you still have problems post the exact error message and I'll be able to give you some advice.

    ERROR: The files associated with this add-on could not be found. Please upload them and try again.
    Is my error, where do I put what files and so froth?
    I did as said on the thread, but it's not working.

    You've definitely uploaded the files incorrectly.

    Try these instructions instead. Slightly different but the result is the same.
    1. In the Nodes As Tabs download there is a folder called upload.
    2. In that folder is a folder called library.
    3. In that folder is a folder called NodesAsTabs.
    4. The NodesAsTabs folder needs to be put into your library folder on your server.

    Thank you, it now works.
    That was more easy to understand than what was posted on the thread.

    Meh. . .it's not necessarily letting my click on the Add-On to edit new Tabs and such.

    Once Nodes As Tabs is installed you need to go to your:

    Admin CP -> Applications -> Display Node Tree

    Edit or create new nodes. The addon adds tab options when adding / editing a node.

    Ohhh, I get it now.
    I'm having trouble making a drop down menu though, how would I do that?

    It's all in the options when adding / editing a node. There is a setting in there called Enable Popup Menu which works in conjunction with Children As Links or the Links Template.
