6. Customize the drop down menu(optional):
Customize Drop down menu A simple Drop Down Menu For Blogger
You can customize the menu according to your blog. This is optional and use it only if you want a different look than the one already available.
The menu consists of three sections as shown in the figure:

1. Main Menu
2. Drop Down Menu
3. Element of Drop Down Menu
In the code you will find some comments. Below the comments you have some editable code.
Here is the explanation of some of the attributes used in the code:
Background: #XXXXXX
This attribute decides the background of the part and XXXXXX is the hex code of the color. You can change the background of each of the three parts.
The color attribute decides the color of the text and XXXXXX is the color hex code.
You can get color hex codes from these online color choosers


width: 123 px
The width determines the width of each element. You can increase or decrease the width according to your choice.
