Tutorial - Styling A Dropdown Menu

Hi Everyone,

I was just working on a project where I needed to style the dropdown menu and the icon. I wanted to share with the community how I did that.

To summarize:

  1. I added the CSS on the main page HTML header. You can find it when you click on the main group and scroll all the way down.
  2. I used Stackoverflow to seek for information so I didn’t have to re-invent the same wheel.

See screenshot below.

CSS code

  background: url(data:image/svg+xml;base64,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) no-repeat 95% 100%;
    -moz-appearance: none;
    -webkit-appearance: none;
    -webkit-border-radius: 0px;
    appearance: none;
    outline-width: 0;
    padding-left: 15px;
    padding-right: 15px;
    display: block;
    width: 10em;
    border: none;
    font-size: 1rem;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #757575;

#dropdown::-ms-expand {
    display: none;

on Internet Explorer it doesn’t work well. Maybe some Bubble experts can point out a solution? The icon positioning is not aligned to the right.

At some point I’ll need to dig deeper into CSS, but just seeing your example is helpful. Thanks, @nocodeventure.
