View Full Version : Blue Blocks Menu - positioning?

05-24-2006, 05:05 PM
I'm working with the code from the Blue Blocks Menu, found at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/item/blue-blocks-menu/

I still have a lot to learn about CSS.

How do I position the menu on the page? I'm using Dreamweaver 8, but the CSS menu does not show in DW. What if I want to position text to the right of the menu?

Right now all I can do is put text under the menu.

The CSS:

<!-- Source: Dynamic Drive CSS Library -->
<!-- URL: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/ -->

<style type="text/css">

width: 180px;
border-right: 1px solid #000;
padding: 0 0 1em 0;
margin-bottom: 1em;
font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', 'Lucida Grande', Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 90%;
background-color: #90bade;
color: #333;

* html #blueblock{ /*IE 6 only */
w\idth: 147px; /*Box model bug: 180px minus all left and right paddings for #blueblock */

#blueblock ul{
list-style: none;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
border: none;

#blueblock li {
border-bottom: 1px solid #90bade;
margin: 0;

#blueblock li a{
display: block;
padding: 5px 5px 5px 8px;
border-left: 10px solid #1958b7;
border-right: 10px solid #508fc4;
background-color: #2175bc;
color: #fff;
text-decoration: none;
width: 100%;

html>body #blueblock li a{ /*Non IE6 width*/
width: auto;

#blueblock li a:hover{
border-left: 10px solid #1c64d1;
border-right: 10px solid #5ba3e0;
background-color: #2586d7;
color: #fff;

Hmm I'm not quite sure what your question is- are you having trouble getting the menu to show up at all on your page, or adding text following the menu? Please clarify.
