I'm not sure there's a mod for that, but you can find plenty of tutorials online for dropdown menus using various methods. If you want to use those, the only file you have to edit is the overall_header.tpl for each of your templates, which is basically HTML.

Looks simple enough. Probably won't work with easyMOD, though, because of this mistake:

Code:
#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
<body onload="init();" bgcolor="{T_BODY_BGCOLOR}" text="{T_BODY_TEXT}" link="{T_BODY_LINK}" vlink="{T_BODY_VLINK}">


#
#-----[ IN-LINE FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
<body

#
#-----[ IN-LINE AFTER, ADD ]------------------------------------------
#
onload="init();"


The actual FIND should be:
Code:
<body bgcolor="{T_BODY_BGCOLOR}" text="{T_BODY_TEXT}" link="{T_BODY_LINK}" vlink="{T_BODY_VLINK}">

Yea I tried to install it with easymod and got some kind of error needless to say there was not even any instructions such as where to even upload it at...

its poorly written mods like that, that make me want to use easymod to many coders automatically assume everyone just knows how to read code and are very vague on giving proper step by step instructions....

To be fair, phpBB mods were my first step into PHP. I only knew HTML and was glad that the forum worked on its own, but when I started adding mods I took the time to read along the instructions and figure out how things worked. As long as you don't skip anything, they're easy to install manually, just time-consuming because you have a lot of search, replace, save and upload to do.
If I had used EasyMOD for everything, I'd have a hard time making my own customizations now icon_smile.gif

Ok lets take a look at the very first step in the instructions is says to:
#-----[ COPY ]------------------------------------------
#
menu.js > menu.js

Now just what exactly is that suppose to me ?

That means that you have to COPY ( = upload) the file menu.js to your forum's root folder (the same folder where your config.php is located).

I know it means that because if you would have to COPY it to another folder it would say so in the file path, for instance includes/menu.js > includes/menu.js.

Well most mods tell me to copy to the root folder or have the files that need to be copied in the root folder in a root folder, what that said was just plan confusing...

actually, I think it would be more confusing when they tell you to copy root to root. you do not have a folder on your server named root.

might not work on some servers

your url would then be:

http:whatever.com/root
instead of
http://whatever.com/phpBB
