Heart Best Drop Down Menu For Your Forum Index
Hello All ... !

Hope that you are enjoying your life, Smile

In some forums I saw a beutiful DHTML drop down menu in the header of forum, and I wonder how they can make like that,
so finally I digg it out, Smile

In this tutorial , I will give you step by step process of making such effect... Smile

Name: Best Drop Down Menu For Your Forum Index
Description: A Classic DHTML Drop Down Menu ... Ohh man one gona go wild for it ... !
Coding: Much easy Rolleyes

So lets Start...

Go to Admin CP > Themes and Styles > Template > Your Theme Template > Index Template > index > Edit >

and now find < head > tag

below it add this code,

<style>
/* CoolMenus 4 - default styles - do not edit */
.clCMAbs{position:absolute; visibility:hidden; left:0; top:0}
/* CoolMenus 4 - default styles - end */
  
/*Style for the background-bar*/
.clBar{position:absolute; width:10; height:10; background-color:#DADCBA; layer-background-color:#DADCBA; visibility:hidden}

/*Styles for level 0*/
.clLevel0,.clLevel0over{position:absolute; padding:2px; font-family:arial,helvetica; font-size:12px; font-weight:bold}
.clLevel0{background-color:#DADCBA; layer-background-color:#DADCBA; color:black;}
.clLevel0over{background-color:#DADCBA; layer-background-color:#DADCBA; color:#000080; cursor:pointer; cursor:hand; }
.clLevel0border{position:absolute; visibility:hidden; background-color:#DADCBA; layer-background-color:#006699}

/*Styles for level 1*/
.clLevel1, .clLevel1over{position:absolute; padding:2px; font-family:arial,helvetica; font-size:11px; font-weight:bold}
.clLevel1{background-color:#DADCBA; layer-background-color:#FCCE55; color:#006699;}
.clLevel1over{background-color:#006699; layer-background-color:#006699; color:#FCCE55; cursor:pointer; cursor:hand; }
.clLevel1border{position:absolute; visibility:hidden; background-color:#DADCBA; layer-background-color:#006699}

/*Styles for level 2*/
.clLevel2, .clLevel2over{position:absolute; padding:2px; font-family:arial,helvetica; font-size:10px; font-weight:bold}
.clLevel2{background-color:#DADCBA; layer-background-color:#FCCE55; color:#006699;}
.clLevel2over{background-color:#006699; layer-background-color:#0099cc; color:#CDDBEB; cursor:pointer; cursor:hand; }
.clLevel2border{position:absolute; visibility:hidden; background-color:#DADCBA; layer-background-color:#006699}
</style>

Edit... ? okay

Now find < body > tag within this template (i.e. index) and below it, add the following code,

<script language="JavaScript1.2" src="coolmenus4.js">

I personally likes CSS. DHTML may make errors while loading.
