Thanks alot for the very useful tips. I try to follow your steps, it works quite well but the dropdown categories are hidden under the elements. When I drag it to the bottom, it works perfectly. You can check it here:

very grateful if you can give me some tips to solve this problem.

Thanks again and looking forwards to having solution from you.
