Hello,

I am a complete HTML n00b. Please can you help. I have "created" this code using other help guides. Essentially i am trying to create a drop down menu with hyperlinks. I know I am doing this wrong and I have no idea where to start but I have got to get on with the project !

This is the code that I have written for a drop down menu with hyperlink. To execute the file is html, when opened the file displays the full code.

I took the code from this page:

https://www.quora.com/How-do-I-create-a-hyp...wn-list-in-HTML

Thanks !

/* BEGIN */

<html>
<head>
<style>

/* Dropdown button */

.dropdown-button {
background-colour: #0000b3;
colour: white;
padding: 16px;
font-size: 16px;
border: none;
}

.dropdown {
position: relative;
display: inline-block;
}

/* Dropdown Content */

.dropdown.list {
display: none;
position: absolute;
background-color: #f1f1f1;
min-width: 160px;
box-shadow: 0px 8px 16px 0px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
z-index: 1;
}

/*Links inside the dropdown */

.dropdown-list a {
color: black;
padding: 12px 16 px;
text-decoration: none;
display: block;
font-family: veranda;
}

/* Change color of dropdown list on hover */

.dropdown: a:hover {
background-color: #ddd
}

/* Show the dropdown list on hover */

.dropdown:hover .dropdown-button {
display: block;
}

/* Change the background color of the dropdown button when the dropdown list is shown */

.dropdown:hover .dropdown-button {
background-color #6666ff;
}

</style>
</head>
<body>
<div class=“dropdown”>
<button class=“dropdown-button”>Dropdown</button>
<div class=“dropdown-list”>
<a href=“#”>BIO, BRIEF, CABLE, CAIPER, CONT, FORM, HW, IR, MIN, MISC, NOTES, NSPR, PREL, REGULATION, RS, STUDY, SUMMARY</a>
<a href =“#”>LETTER</a>
<a href =“#”>MEMO</a>
<a href =“#”>MFR & MF</a>
<a href =“#”>OPEN, OPEN SOURCE, MAGAZINE</a>
<a href =“#”>PAPER</a>
<a href =“#”>REPORT</a>
<a href =“#”>RP</a>
</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>

/* END */

.dropdown: a:hover {

The first colon character above shouldn't be there, try this instead:

CODE
.dropdown a:hover {


QUOTE
<div class=“dropdown”>

Double-quote characters like the ones above are invalid, use these instead:

CODE
<div class="dropdown">

(the same applies elsewhere too).

It needs to be the right type of quote characters. These are OK:

CODE
"dropdown"

(the ones on a computer keyboard), but not "curly" or "fancy" ones like these:

CODE
“dropdown”

(often used by e.g. MS Office?).

QUOTE

<div class=dropdown>

You can sometimes omit the quotes "if it doesn't contain ASCII whitespace or any of " ' ` = < or >". You can also use single quotes like these:

CODE
'dropdown'

(but again only the ones on a keyboard, not curly ones).

thanks again for your help !

You're welcome!
