    Welcome back to the forum!

    I'm curious if it's possible to customize a website to put photos and/or videos in the drop down column of the menu bar on a clothing website in WordPress? I'm hoping to swap out the pictures and have a different photo for each clothing subsection. Right now I have photos in the drop down menu but it's the same photos for every section (shoes, tops, etc). I was hoping to have pictures that match whatever section it is. Shoes for shoes, tops for tops, etc.

    Is this a possibility?

      Having a ton of plugins may or may not affect your load speed. But, if you are using that many plugins to optimize your website, you're not going to get the best results.

      Here are a few things to look at:

      1. Use several tools to analyze what my be causing the bottleneck, e.g. plugin conflicts, theme files (JS, CSS), large images, etc.
      2. Check to see if you have slow DNS. This will depend where you registered the domain with.
      3. A big factor is the hosting provider. If it's one of the most recommended hosting providers or owned by EIG, then your speed is going to be hampered - significantly.
      4. Are you using a bulky editor or theme

      Many other things may affect the impact of site load time, but those are some of the bigger issues to look into first.


      Hi RMRC,

      You are most likely looking to create a Mega Menu (there are several plugins for WordPress) which allows you to use images or video. I would be careful on how many you use so that it does not slow down your load time. Be sure to optimize the images for performance.

    Hi! Welcome back to the Forum!

    I have two questions about YouTube:

    1. I asked the YouTube Community and YouTube Feedback this question and didn't get a reply. I'm 76 years old. At this age it's natural to think about facing my own death. If I create YouTube channels, when I die, what will the Executor of my Will need to do in order to discontinue all the YouTube channels I will have created?

    2. How do I contact YouTube directly so I can ask them questions?

    Thank you very much!

    Not sure why you would ask a question unrelated to the thread but it's an easy answer...


    Leave instructions for how to shut down various 'stuff' - and also once your bank account and credit cards are closed other 'subscriptions' will cancel themselves.
