     16=So how does it work?= 
     17 
     18Basically, it works like this: 
     19 
     20The menu's markup code is being printed as an ordinary nested menu. e.g. 
     21 
     22` 
     23<ul> 
     24    <li><a href="http://example.com/page">Some Random Page</a></li> 
     25    <li><a href="http://example.com/page-another">Another Page</a></li> 
     26    <li><a href="http://example.com/yao">Yet Another One</a></li> 
     27</ul> 
     28` 
     29 
     30Since most browsers support JavaScript, using the widget, the markup would be translated into something like this 
     31 
     32` 
     33<select> 
     34    <option value="http://example.com/page">Some Random Page</option> 
     35    ... 
     36    <option value="http://example.com/page">Something else</option> 
     37</select> 
     38` 
     39 
     40The tricky part here is, that search engines do not usually interpret JavaScript, all they will be able to scan is the nested menu. That way they will reach out for those pages, and most probably will crawl those pages as well. 
     41 
     42=Features set for the next versions= 
     43 
    1544Soon there will be an option for developers to use the same functionality via the code. e.g. 
    1645`<?php optimized_dropdown_menu( $menu_args ); ?>`
