I am working on my navigation, but I can not find anything for 'Roll-over' changes on text in drop down.
You will see my navigation roll over is white to red, but it is not on the drop down, I would like the text on the drop down to turn red when mouse rolls over it like the rest of the navigation. But I can not find this option / is it and option? Please help. SIte: http://www.printingcyprus.com/

HI Seen, As you have offset the pages in the drop down it appears you cannot edit the name. So, if you take your first drop down, go into pages and move the drop down pages back to the left so they appear as individual pages. Now select each page into edit mode, click on the page name in the nav bar and go to the properties box and change the colour of the roll over to red ( same as the main navigation text) Save, so that when you roll over it turns red. Do that to each page in the drop down list and once completed you go back to the pages list and offset them again, back in to the drop down configuration. Now, when you hover of the main Nav link, the drop down pages will appear and as you roll over them they will change to red.  Hope that makes sense, if not let me know and I will try and take screenshots of the process. Basically you can edit the roll over colour  only when its a stand alone page.

Hi, I can edit the names no prob.
I have moved all pages back to left so they are not offset, selected each page in edit mode, made roll over effect saved,, that works, but soon as page is offset the roll over effect disappears.?
Any thoughts.

Sorry Buddy, I have built drop downs with further side menus, moved them around, back and forth etc and the link still maintained its roll over colour. To the point where I only had one main navigation button and the rest were sub menus and no problems??? All I can think of ( and this is pure guesswork) is that having three navigation bars is causing some conflict. Some pages are drop down on the main horizontal navigation but not replicated in the vertical navigation and/or the third navigation on the T Shirt page may be the cause. What I would do is have just one navigation bar and have drop downs to access more pages. I have no idea if this would resolve the issue, just saying what I would do and that is to go back to basics and check each step of the way. Good Luck with it.

Had the third nav as was playing around, to see how all works.
Am just gonna have the drop down without any roll over as need to finish site. Maybe go back once done. I like the round circle that brings up the side navigation, this is not the cause of no roll over effects as I have removed and published, but still the same.
T-shirts has the drop down at moment , you'll see no effects. will have finished soon, working on the 'PROJECTS' page layout - http://www.printingcyprus.com/
Still cant find a work around, but no big deal I guess, would just be nice for all to be the same. :-)

I agree the round circle is a neat element,How about  keeping that and the vertical nav bar it brings up, but loosing the horizontal nav bar.? You have a lot of information and too much to fit horizontally, vertically, its easier to scroll down and give you more room?  Was in Cyprus 2012 lovely place.

Good Idea :-) I will see how that looks. Cyprus is still lovely been here 17 years.
What are your thoughts if you do not mind me asking on the projects page. http://www.printingcyprus.com/projects
My old web site made with the desktop builder is http://www.seenadvertising.com/, so trying to replicate with the new builder. lots of work to do, but having fun with the new Homestead builder. :-)

Its a great website with so much on offer and varied products.. I will have a longer look at all on offer. It will be even better with the new websitebuilder, been working with it along with my peers for a few months now and some of the promised elements didn't quite work the way the should in the beginning but they are gradually getting on top of the glitches... I will keep popping back to see how its going but with the amount or products your in for a long haul... wish you every success.

HI.
My menu has 12 links, I have made so that only 10 show, in the editor, you will see that these don't have the effect and they are part of the main navigation (not offset)?? http://www.printingcyprus.com/
