Doing it with style

CSS MENUSVertical concertina slide menu

Date : 30th October 2008

For all modern browsers


I have several slide demonstrations on my other javascript site at and this one in particular Concertina Slide so I thought that I should also show how this can be done with just CSS.

Whereas the javascript version uses mouse clicks to open and close the various sub menus this one MUST use hovers as it is not possible to nest 'clicks' using just CSS.

It is also necessary to have all the expanding menus the same height so that the hover is not lost when selecting the 'next' top level menu. Items without sub menus should be placed at the top of the list.

This has been tested in IE6, IE7, Firefox, Opera, Safari(PC) and Google Chrome and does NOT use javascript.
