As a new CSS(Cascading Style Sheets) learner i decided to start from creating menu and navigation buttons.You know one of the most important part of a web site is the menu and navigation.Today i made a detailed search about the menu tutorials and practiced most of them.Well,you may think what about my menu system.I’m practicing and so will create a different styled menu system.Below are the 31 CSS Menu and Navigation tutorials which will help you practice and learn a lot.Some of them are created with the help of jQuery but i’ really inspired with them.
1.Create an Apple Style Menu and Improve it via jQuery
Start from scratch and build such a menu in Photoshop, then create the needed HTML and CSS and last but not least improve it via jQuery.
This CSS menu will have submenus and will use the web-techniques HTML, CSS and the “whatever:hover” behavior file to make things work in Firefox and IE6+. By the end of this tutorial, you will be able to make this example CSS menu.
3.A Centered Menu With Gradient and Two Pointers
4.A Flyout Menu With Breadcrumb Trail
This is a standard flyout menu with a few frills and graphics to show which levels have flyouts, and it can also be made to show which path has been taken to arrive at your current page.
5.Navigation Bar With Tabs Using CSS and Sliding Doors Effect
With a more trimmed down interface and with an arrow background that appears only when the mouse moves over a menu item.
This is a lean, professional looking CSS menu that’s draped in a solid two color background image. The divider between the menu items is simply a white CSS border.
These sliding doors based blue tinted tabs “jump up” when selected, such as when the mouse rolls over each one. This is accomplished using a combination of relative positioning and padding on each tab.
This is a clean looking CSS menu with simply a gray border outlining its edges. To add a little flare, an “aura” effect is added when the mouse moves over the menu items
This horizontal CSS menu goes with a minimalist approach, by applying just a thick border underneath each link to give it style.
