How to add a Dropdown in site navigation

Adding a Dropdown link in the site navigation enables you to manage your site structure effectively by making several content items appear as sub-links under the dropdown. This de-clutters the site’s primary navigations and adds logic and relevance to your website navigation.

For example, you can create a Projects drop-down and add all your projects galleries in the drop-down.

A drop-down does not have its link (URL). It just lists all the sub-links in site navigation. If you want to create a page which can include your sub-links and has unique URL then would recommend you to create a group instead of the drop-down. Click here to see how.
