Thanks for the comment. With regards to the dropdown feature I didn’t really do anything. The categories you see are just sub categories of the default catalog. Then when I add a product I just assign each product to its chosen category. I then just changed the arrow graphic for a divider.
Looks like you added them as sub categories hence the dropdown. Just have Beer Kits | Wine Kits | Equipment as your categories then link your products to the relevant category.
If you still want sub categories but don’t want them on the navigation bar then you could point the main categories to a static block where you could have graphics or icon dividing the sub categories like the attached image.
Hope this helps.
