Horizontal Drop Down Menu With Sub-Tabs In Two Columns In Blogger

A drop down menu  can be observed in many blogs but if you make it it in an outstanding way your blog is in the spotlight from the rest of other blogs throughout the web. In this tutorial I will share to you a special type of dropdown down menu which I have learned from helplogger wherin its sub-tabs are displayed in two columns and is also made with CSS, and the good things is we will not add  any scripts on it which is the cause of your slow blog loading . Another feature is that the sub-tabs when arranged in two columns are not very long, so it will be neat and less space along.

<div id='btttab'>

<ul id='top'>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL'>Tab 1 Title Here</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL'>Tab 2 Title Here</a></li>
<li><a class='submenucol' href='#'>Tab 3 Title Here</a>

<li><a href='http://YOUR URL'>Sub Tab 3.3</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL'>Sub Tab 3.4</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL'>Sub Tab 3.5</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL'>Sub Tab 3.6</a></li>
<li><a class='submenucol' href='#'>Tab 4 Title Here</a>

Replace 'http://YOUR URL' with the URL of your post. or you can just put a # sign  on it.

To add as many of the main tabs as you need,  just copy the entire code below for the main tab for each additional tab you want:

<li><a href='http://YOUR URL'>Sub Tab 7.2</a></li>
<li><a href='http://YOUR URL'>Sub Tab 7.3</a></li>

Step 5. Now let's go a step further and add the CSS style in our Template. Back to Blogger Dashboard, go to Template > Edit HTML
Step 6. Search for the tag ]]></b:skin> and just above it paste the code below.
/* Horizontal menu with 2 columns
----------------------------------------------- */
#btttab {
background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #666666, #000000);
background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0.00, #666666), color-stop(1.0, #000000));
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(gradientType=0,startColorStr=#666666,endColorStr=#000000);
border-bottom:1px solid #666666;
border-top:1px solid #666666;
margin:0 auto;padding:0 auto;
#btttopwrapper {
margin:0 auto;
padding:0 auto;
.clearit {
clear: both;
height: 0;
line-height: 0.0;
font-size: 0;
#top {
#top, #top ul {
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
list-style: none;
#top a {
border-right:1px solid #333333;
display: block;
text-decoration: none;
padding:10px 12px 11px;
font:bold 14px Arial;
#top a:hover {
#top a.submenucol {
background-image: url(;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
padding: 10px 24px 11px 12px;
background-position: right center;
#top li {
float: left;
position: relative;
#top li {
position: static !important;
width: auto;
#top li ul, #top ul li {
#top ul li a {
padding: 6px 15px;
font-family:Arial, sans-serif;
#top li ul {
position: absolute;
display: none;
padding:10px 0;
border-radius: 0px 0px 6px 6px;
box-shadow:0 2px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.6);
#top li ul li {
#top li:hover ul, #top li.hvr ul {
display: block;
#top li:hover ul a, #top li.hvr ul a {
#top ul a:hover {
color:#444444 !important;

Step 7. Now find (CTRL + F) this line: It will also have some little lines or codes beneath it like the below:
.tabs-inner {
  margin: .5em $(tabs.margin.sides) $(tabs.margin.bottom);
  padding: 0;

.tabs-inner .section {
  margin: 0;

.tabs-inner .widget ul {
  padding: 0;

  background: $(tabs.background.color) $(tabs.background.gradient) repeat scroll bottom;

  -moz-border-radius: $(tabs.border.radius);
  -webkit-border-radius: $(tabs.border.radius);
  -goog-ms-border-radius: $(tabs.border.radius);
  border-radius: $(tabs.border.radius);

.tabs-inner .widget li {
  border: none;

.tabs-inner .widget li a {
  display: inline-block;

  padding: .5em 1em;
  margin-$endSide: $(tabs.spacing);

  color: $(tabs.text.color);
  font: $(tabs.font);

  -moz-border-radius: $(tab.border.radius) $(tab.border.radius) 0 0;
  -webkit-border-top-left-radius: $(tab.border.radius);
  -webkit-border-top-right-radius: $(tab.border.radius);
  -goog-ms-border-radius: $(tab.border.radius) $(tab.border.radius) 0 0;
  border-radius: $(tab.border.radius) $(tab.border.radius) 0 0;

  background: $(tab.background);

  border-$endSide: 1px solid $(tabs.separator.color);

.tabs-inner .widget li:first-child a {
  padding-$startSide: 1.25em;

  -moz-border-radius-top$startSide: $(tab.first.border.radius);
  -moz-border-radius-bottom$startSide: $(tabs.border.radius);
  -webkit-border-top-$startSide-radius: $(tab.first.border.radius);
  -webkit-border-bottom-$startSide-radius: $(tabs.border.radius);
  -goog-ms-border-top-$startSide-radius: $(tab.first.border.radius);
  -goog-ms-border-bottom-$startSide-radius: $(tabs.border.radius);
  border-top-$startSide-radius: $(tab.first.border.radius);
  border-bottom-$startSide-radius: $(tabs.border.radius);

.tabs-inner .widget li.selected a,
.tabs-inner .widget li a:hover {
  position: relative;
  z-index: 1;

  background: $(tabs.selected.background.color) $(tab.selected.background.gradient) repeat scroll bottom;
  color: $(tabs.selected.text.color);

  -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 $(region.shadow.spread) rgba(0, 0, 0, .15);
  -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 $(region.shadow.spread) rgba(0, 0, 0, .15);
  -goog-ms-box-shadow: 0 0 $(region.shadow.spread) rgba(0, 0, 0, .15);
  box-shadow: 0 0 $(region.shadow.spread) rgba(0, 0, 0, .15);

Step 8. Delete the code above until you reach the code :
/* Headings
----------------------------------------------- */

Step 9. Replace the  code that you have removed above, add this one:
#crosscol ul {z-index: 200; padding:0 !important;}
#crosscol li:hover {position:relative;}
#crosscol ul li {padding:0 !important;}
.tabs-outer {z-index:1;}
.tabs-inner {padding: 0 0px;}

Step 10. Save the Template and you are done pal!
