How to Add Multi Drop Down Navigation Menu In Blogger?

Today I am sharing the easy drop down navigation menu for blogspot users. This is vital for every single blogger to create the navigation easier of the blogs due to several reasons and drop down navigation menu can be an ideal thing for this. In most of these menus, when a person hovers the particular mouse cursor in any unique category next it falls some sub categories of it from the vertical design. And for this effect, it is termed best menus style. Well, before installing this in your blog first let me tell you something about this.
This is the simple drop down navigation menu that is built with pure HTML, CSS3 along with JQuery. It features a gray color since it is intuitive and it does not affect the particular visitors' face. You know some large colors like Purple, Blue along with Orange have an impact on the visitors' eyes and the majority web designers use light colors. And this menu shows the top to bottom sub types when you may place the particular mouse in any drop down menus. It also offers a focus or press effect. So lets start adding this menu to your blogger blog.

      $(function() {
        //We initially hide the all dropdown menus
        $('#dropdown_nav li').find('.sub_nav').hide();

        //When hovering over the main nav link we find the dropdown menu to the corresponding link.
        $('#dropdown_nav li').hover(function() {

        }
                                    , function() {
