The bluetronix software provides five different types of drop down menus. Dynamic menus allow the creation of a complete navigation while still having a handy overview. Because only the current submenu will pop up, your homepage doesn’t look overcrowded and the visitors are not overwhelmed and can easily navigate around your pages.
The menu editor allows you to create an unlimited amount of menu items and submenus. It is possible to customise the design of each menu item and/or of each submenu with the help of the CSS editor. Button options like ‘Mouse-over’ or ‘On-click’ can be defined by a style class. It is also possible to have different types of menus on one homepage as seen below.
The following screenshots display the five menu types.
The horizontal menu has a drop-down submenu, while the third menu and all following submenus open to the right-hand side.

The vertical menu opens each submenu below the respective menu item by clicking on it. If selecting another menu item, the respective submenu will open after all other menu layers have been closed.
