Can I use categories as drop down menu?

  1. Hello! I was wondering if there's a possibility to use the "category" as a drop down menu.

    If you check out my blog: https://hireshi.wordpress.com/
    You see the categories as a drop down menu in the right column. But I want it as a drop down menu in the top header, right next to "About me" and "Home".

    If you look at this blog: http://neonskittles.com/

    And pull your mouse over "Figures" a drop down menu with choices of different kinds of entries will appear.(neonskittles is a .org wordpress).

    Is it possible to pull something like that off on wordpress.com? I would subscribe if it's a premium thing.

    Help greatly appreciated, thanks!

    The blog I need help with is hireshi.wordpress.com.

  2. There are some themes that work this way. There's a list at http://wpbtips.wordpress.com

  3. The custom menus option also lets you use categories as part of site navigation

  4. @raincoaster : Do all those skins work that way? Or do I have to for one in the pile of themes on the site?

    @slikbonez : Thanks a lot! I will try this out:)

  5. "Skins?"

    You can configure your category widget to display drop-downs or you can use a theme that has it as a tabbed header using the Custom Menu option. In either case, consult that blog for a list of themes that enable it: not all do.

  6. Ok, I tried what slikbonez showed me. I use the theme "zBench"

    I can only choose categories like this: http://tinypic.com/r/2mpe539/7

    But it just ends up like this: http://tinypic.com/r/30deypz/7

    I would like a new tab named "Categories" to appear next to "about me" and when I pull my pointer over "categories" all the category names will appear in a drop down menu, like this: http://tinypic.com/r/qzm3j7/7

    But I can't seem to get it to work

  7. Nevermind, I managed to fix the problem! It's alright now :)
    Thanks for helping me!

  8. You're welcome!

  9. well how did you fix the problem?
