Doing it with style

CSS MENUSA simple image drop down menu

Date : 24th November 2009

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.


I have had many requests recently for a single level dropdown menu that uses images in place of text for the top level and the sub levels so I thought that I would demonstrate a very simple method of doing this.

The above menu uses just six images and is very simple to produce. The top level is just one background image held in the containing div and each of the sub menus is also just one image placed in the containing ul. Each link is then mapped on top of the corresponding image and has a rollover state where an arrow is added as a background image in each link.

Tested in IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox, Opera, Safari(PC) and Google Chrome

The images used are as follows

The top level list (reduced in size to fit this page width)

The 'Products' sub menu

The 'Services' sub menu

The 'Outlets' sub menu

The 'Terms' sub menu

The rollover arrow

I will be producing a more complex version shortly which will use individual images for each link with rollover.
