Ning popout tabs that float down the page with you. just add the stylesheet to your NC custom code box or just your main page place the stylesheet in a text box.

Update Version 2.1 I noticed on some networks using Google chrome there was an overflow problem and a sub tab issue but it's fixed now....

the look is completely customizable. if you'd like help adding the customized tabs and/or main button to the stylesheet just ask I'll be more than happy to help..

Compatibility
Compatible with all newer browsers and all Ning networks. Warning may not be compatible with some customized navigation codes...

Applying the code to your network or just your main page

for your whole network the stylesheet goes into your NC custom code box. or for just your main page place the stylesheet in a text box on your main page.

here's some menu images that Dave gave me if you'd like to use one of these or make your own..

 

Thank you Dave.

  • Pretty awesome George, BUT, is there any way to have your new method and the older menus at the same time?

    • do you want the centered one or the one to left?

      Sent me the link to your network and I'll work that out for you.. :-)

      • I tried the center version and it was better on http://swmm2000.com but I took it out as i get a lot of lurkers on my network and they might be confused by a button, it did look good however,  let me think about it more but thanks for a great tip and even greater code

        • thank you for the Complement Doone You have a great day :-)

      • hi

        thank you this is great I love it, could you please but the code in for me as it is playing me up you are a star thank you www.b-yond.co

        • to make it look like the image above @ www.b-yond.co just add this code to your NC custom code box.

          <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://api.ning.com:80/files/*tHd*uipNJDIa5FrEWehiZ4CP-AiLfC3CFeJSQ4FCaP6Ea*ESGm8CQsVHFURtH6xE2bW6JZip6o83IoNzj*7wIoAHLxBFe3S/1064554081.css" />

          • Hi your a star, please can you just make sure that every thing is ok with my site please www.b-yond.co

            • your site looks great and the navigation is working perfectly in Firefox and in Internet Explorer 9-10  but when the spinning animation starts in Google chrome your sub tabs disappear. To fix that I recommend removing Dave's spinning tab animation code.

              and if you would like you can change the size of that button using this code.. just place this code underneath the stylesheet  in your NC custom code box..  I think your network looks better with the button at this size :)

              <style>

              DIV#xg_navigation{
                width: 60px!important;
                height: 60px!important;}

              </style>

              • Hi


                Thank you your a star :) done what you said, but I think I may have delete some thing, Please can you have a look and make sure  that my still ok, thank you so much for all your help and support
