  • If you don't want the rotation animation just take out this line of css


    @-webkit-keyframes cssAnimation {
    from { -webkit-transform: rotate(4deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(10px); }
    to { -webkit-transform: rotate(360deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(0px); }
    }
    @-moz-keyframes cssAnimation {
    from { -moz-transform: rotate(4deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(10px); }
    to { -moz-transform: rotate(360deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(0px); }
    }
    @-o-keyframes cssAnimation {
    from { -o-transform: rotate(4deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(10px); }
    to { -o-transform: rotate(360deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(0px); }
    }
  • Scott Bishop replied to this and asked to see a screen shot..his comment was deleted..who Knows why, can't seem to add any screen shots as theirs no link button or upload phot buttons above lol...
    If you want to stop the rotation of the nav tabs use this instead of the first comment i made..i left a few lines out :-)

    div#xg_navigation li a {
    -webkit-animation: cssAnimation 2.561s 1 ease;
    -moz-animation: cssAnimation 2.561s 1 ease;
    -o-animation: cssAnimation 2.561s 1 ease;
    }
    @-webkit-keyframes cssAnimation {
    from { -webkit-transform: rotate(4deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(10px); }
    to { -webkit-transform: rotate(360deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(0px); }
    }
    @-moz-keyframes cssAnimation {
    from { -moz-transform: rotate(4deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(10px); }
    to { -moz-transform: rotate(360deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(0px); }
    }
    @-o-keyframes cssAnimation {
    from { -o-transform: rotate(4deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(10px); }
    to { -o-transform: rotate(360deg) scale(1) skew(1deg) translate(0px); }
    }
  •  I love the animation you added :) dancing tabs

    • Hi George, Thanks for putting the pic's up :-) ,  i couldn't find a link , Glad you like them :-) There on the edge, I thought they look pretty cool :-)

      •  you're welcome they do look pretty cool and I'm glad the animation stops shortly after the mouse over. It makes a great eye-catching visual effect :-)

  • This is VERY cool, but I'm curious... which codes would I remove that takes out your css styling... color and border wise? I like this, but I want the css style to come from my previous stylesheet.

    Not sure if it will work, but if you now visit my network, you'll see the nav tabs come in... they start with my yellow, shaped borders, but end without them. Seems your code appearance settings are over riding mine, but mine will work with the movements of these tabs. Here's my link.

    • is this all that I would remove to keep animations and have my style sheet allot the colors and borders/shape?

      • Never mind, I totally have figured it out. :) It was only the rotation I wanted. None of the styles. :) Great tip!

        • Hi Damien, just visited your site , the animation looks good :-)

          • Thank you very much!

            I'm not sure if this will stay like this though, I've started another thread requesting the ability to have nav tabs hidden under a small button, and when mouse over that button, the nav tabs/subtabs animate out to their positions. When mouse out, they animate back into the button. Hoping to get some replies on that one. :)
