    Default Re: horizontal CSS menu

    Ok Seems i got one working (works for me) what i did is the following (hopefuly will help anyone else looking for something

    Firstly I opened up main_page.tpl.php from the template dir and added the following after these lines :
    PHP Code:
    </a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHOPPING_CART) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'header_cart.gif', HEADER_TITLE_CART_CONTENTS) . '</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_SHIPPING, '', 'SSL') . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'header_checkout.gif', HEADER_TITLE_CHECKOUT) . '</a>'; ?>&nbsp;&nbsp;</td>
    PHP Code:
    <table border="0" width=620 cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1" align=center>
    <td valign="middle">
    <tr class="header">
    <div id="chromemenu">
        <li><a href="login.php" title="Link 1"><span><?php echo HEADER_TITLE_MY_ACCOUNT ?></span></a></li>
        <li><a href="shopping_cart.php" title="Link 2"><span><?php echo HEADER_TITLE_CART_CONTENTS ?></span></a></li>
        <li><a href="login.php" title="Link 3"><span><?php echo HEADER_TITLE_CHECKOUT ?></span></a></li>
    From here i Opened up stylesheet.css from the same template dir and put in the following at the bottom :

    /*- Menu Tabs --------------------------- */
    <style type="text/css">
    /*Credits: Dynamic Drive CSS Library */
    /*URL: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/ */
    width: 99%;
    font-weight: bold;
    font-size: 90%;
    #chromemenu:after{ /*Add margin between menu and rest of content in Firefox*/
    content: "."; 
    display: block; 
    height: 0; 
    clear: both; 
    visibility: hidden;
    #chromemenu ul{
    border: 1px solid #BBB;
    width: 100%;
    background: url(images/chromebg.gif) center center repeat-x;
    padding: 5px 0;
    margin: 0;
    text-align: left; /*set value to "right" for example to align menu to the left of page*/
    #chromemenu ul li{
    display: inline;
    #chromemenu ul li a{
    color: #494949;
    padding: 5px;
    margin: 0;
    text-decoration: none;
    border-right: 1px solid #DADADA;
    #chromemenu ul li a:hover{
    background: url(images/chromebg2.gif) center center repeat-x;
    I then ftped the images from Dynamic Drive CSS Library- Horizontal CSS Menus for that particular menu and everything seems to work so far.
