jQuery Drop Line Menu

Author: Dynamic Drive

This menu turns a nested UL list into a horizontal drop line menu, with each sub menu appearing as a single row of links beneath its parent menu. To polish it up, the menu uses a touch of jQuery magic to apply a nice slide down effect to each sub menu as it is revealed.


Important: Make sure your page contains a valid doctype for this menu to render properly.

The external files: The menu requires the following support files, which you should upload by default all to the same directory as your page itself:

  • droplinebar.css (inside this file, confirm the paths to the two blue gradient images below)
  • droplinemenu.js (inside this file, confirm the path to the arrow image below)

The CSS/ JavaScript: The below code should be added to the HEAD section of your page:

I also had trouble centering the menu but overcame it by removing float-left, setting width to 82% and setting left & right margins to auto, as below:
/*float: left;*/
/*width: 100%;*/
width: 82%;
I do however find that the menu does not work in Mozilla Firefox. The bar is invisible until you cursor over it.
