 @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.
