Vertical Menu For Dummies

Recommended Posts

ah2evoxy82raqhs

I did a quick search and found a few articles, but nothing that really helped. I'm trying to create a menu exactly like the one on this page http://www.pagelines.com/docs/. I am also using the horizontal menu on the top; and the pages that display in the new vertical menu I'm trying to create would have an entirely different set of pages. Is there anyone that could give me a step-by-step tutorial on exactly how to do this? Thanks in advance, John.

If you look at the source code John, you will see that's an unordered list simply styled to remove the bullets. You can add the unordered lists to a text widget. Putting it in the right divs and classes, ensures you can style it properly to create the look, spacing, and appearance of our menu. Do you have Firebug for Firefox? (http://www.getfirebug.com) That can help you identify the CSS and tags you need.

Hi rangelone, unfortunately, I'm afraid I'm dumber than that. Can you or anybody be more specific? Thanks, John

Start by going to Appearance -> Menus and creating the new menu or menus you want in your sidebar. Then you can go into Appearance -> Widgets and drag the "custom menu" widget into the primary sidebar widget area. Select the new menu you have created from the dropdown.; After it is in place you will need to customize its look using CSS. If you get Google Chrome you can use the web inspector to see the structure of the menu and style it accordng to the classes and ids you see there.
