CF Navigation Menu

Author: Dynamic Drive

This is CSS based navigational menu based on a single tab interface. The name "CF" is taken after our partner site, which at the time of writing uses a menu based on this code. Four images are used as part of its interface- the two round corners, an indented divider between menu links, and a gradient background image spanning the menu.

In case you're wondering, this CSS menu retains its structure well when the text is resized.

Very nice navigation menu!

There's a little bug in IE and Opera if you have 3 or less links : The UL element doesn't render fine. To correct this just use this:

#cfnavbar ul li{

insted of

#cfnavbar ul li{

I am new to CSS and my question is: Do I save the images above individually, or do I save them as one image, or am I even allowed to use the images provided above? Kindly advise. :)

Save the images above individually! Be sure there are correctly referenced in your CSS file (put they in a sub-folder called "media). Have fun! ;)

#cfnavbar ul li a#leftcorner{
backgroundurl(images/menu_rightcorner.giftop left no-repeat;


#cfnavbar ul li:first-child a{
backgroundurl(images/menu_rightcorner.giftop left no-repeat;

will remove the need of placing 'id="leftcorner"' on the first link.

Also, using pseudo last-child will do the same, but for rightcorner on the last link.


#cfnavbar ul li:last-child a{
backgroundurl(images/menu_rightcorner.giftop right no-repeat;

What does it take to center the menu, I tried various options but didn't seem to get it right. I LOVE THESE MENUS!!!

Hi Michael: Wrap the menu code with <div align="center> and </div>. It works for me.
