@crestodina I have tried to take your advice but just can't bring myself to reduce the nav buttons to less than 9 items. I did put it both top and bottom. Added a Google search box at the top of each page tied in with Google analytics. I did notice that out of 4200 visits in December, only 260 landed on my home page so perhaps I am over-thinking it. I had picosearch previously and their stats showed that not many people used the search box. I thought that was a bad thing but after listening to your advice maybe that is a good thing.

@crestodina When you talk about mega drop-downs for a large site I am not sure what you are calling large. For example , with 550 pages my site is not huge but hard to find some items unless you use the search box. It is a travel site with information not readily put into a navigation menu and therefore not easily found. So to may way of thinking a drop-down would be useful.
Well, now I am confused. You had me talked out of the drop-down then you mention mega drop-downs. With over 500 pages and growing I thought drop-downs would be a good way to go. So any further guidance?
Of course at the moment it does not matter because the program I use does not allow for drop-downs but sometime in the future I (or they) will probably change.
