Drop Down Archive Menu

Not too long ago, Blogger added a drop down menu as an option for displaying older posts. To modify the way you display your archive:

1. Go to layout and click to edit your blog archive page element.

2. Choose 'drop down menu' (or whatever you want) for your style.

3. Modify it to your liking and then save.

If you want to do it the hard, HTML way, then check out this tutorial.

Easy Peasy!
