How to make a page drop down menu?

  1. http://btecnationalbusiness.wordpress.com/

    This is my blog about my business coursework.

    I have two folders for my units, "Year 1" and "Year 2".

    I want a drop down menu for "Year 1" with all my units below. The same with "Year 2".

    I tried to do it but it ended up in the sidebar, which is not what I wanted.

    Cheers!

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

  2. The theme you are using Kubrick does not provide the option of removing the sidebar on static pages that you create. It also lacks a horizontal menu. The theme does not natively support menus. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/02/26/sidebars-and-other-widget-areas/

    If you want dropdowns to child pages then you will have to select another theme. Select a theme that does have a horizontal menu and then create a custom menu.

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that here is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages and custom links in your custom menu as well.

    These are the how-to instructions:

    How to create a custom menu. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    1.You add the Categories you want to display and arrange them in the order you want.

    2. Then you add and drop and drag the sub-categories below the appropriate Categories.

    3. You add the Pages you want to display and arrange them in the order you want.

    4. Then you add and drop and drag the sub-pages (child pages) below the appropriate parent Pages.

    5. You add the custom links you want to display and arrange them in the order you want.

    6. When you have everything arranged in the menu that you want you save the menu.

    7. Go to the “theme location” module at upper left on the menu page. Select your custom menu name from the pull-down labeled “primary location.” Click the save button in that module.

    8. Refresh your browser so that it isn’t possibly pulling a cached page, and view see your new menu with Parent pages and dropdowns to sub-pages.

  3. What theme should I choose then? It doesn't really tell me whether each theme has a horizontal and custom menu.
