CSS Library Vertical CSS Menus
Welcome to Dynamic Drive's new CSS library! Here you'll find original, practical CSS codes and examples such as CSS menus to give your site a visual boast.
Glossy Vertical Menu
This is a CSS vertical menu that uses a thin, repeating background image that changes when the mouse moves over a link. The image is glossy looking with an indent at the bottom to create a nice separation between links.
Image Marker Menu
This CSS code creates a vertical menu out of ordinary lists, using an arrow image to replace the default HTML marker. The image is applied as a background image, with a different one shown when the mouse moves over the links.
DD Blue Blocks Menu
This is our rendition of a block looking vertical menu, inspired by the original Blue Blocks menu and based on the CSS used by the vertical menu of our sister site CSS Drive. It supports the insertion of menu headers to act as dividers between groups of menu links.
Blue Blocks Menu
This is an attractive "blocks" CSS menu with an accompanying hover effect. We added some changes of our own to the CSS to create a consistent menu width across browsers.
Wire Frame Menu
This is a vertical CSS menu with a simple frame around the menu items. It's "minimalist" style allows you to customize its style further as you see fit.
Button Vertical Menu
By giving each menu link a ridge border with contrasting top/left and right/bottom background colors, the result is a slightly beveled button menu.
Bevel Vertical Menu
This CSS creates an "3 state" vertical menu out of an ordinary list. When the mouse moves over the menu, the menu item bevels up. Furthermore, in modern browsers such as Firefox (not IE6), clicking on the menu creates a depressed effect while the mouse is held down.
