NC for Hire

I see there is a CSS Maniac Reward here on Creators so I figured I'd share this expandable menus concept using just CSS and HTML

Final Demo Here:

See the Pen Smart Expandable Menus by JFarrow (@JFarrow) on CodePen.

 

You can view it live on Ning inside my Test Page (nevermind the https...this is my sandbox site)

In order to get this working on your Ning site you'll want to find a place inside your pages where you want it to live...like a sidebar.

Place the following HTML into an HTML module in sites and pages:

<nav>
<div class="menu-item">
<h4 style="text-align: center;"><a href="#">PRODUCT DELIVERY DETAILS</a></h4>
<ul>
<li>
This product will be shipped directly from Italy within 1 - 2 weeks of order.
This product is available to view in our showroom. <strong>View in showroom &gt;
</strong></li>
</ul>
</div>
<div class="menu-item">
<h4 style="text-align: center;"><a href="#">MEET THE DESIGNER</a></h4>
<ul>
<li>For Calflex, design is essential and has lead to the creation of the Carimali range, a modern, avant-garde line. <strong>Find out more &gt;</strong></li>
</ul>
</div>
<div class="menu-item">
<h4 style="text-align: center;"><a href="#">SHARE WITH CLIENT</a></h4>
<ul>
<li>
<div style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/Portals/1/Email.png" style="width: 50px; height: 50px;" />
<img alt="" src="/Portals/1/Wishlist%20Outline.png" onmouseover="this.src='/Portals/1/Wishlist%20Filled.png'" onmouseout="this.src='/Portals/1/Wishlist%20Outline.png'" style="width: 50px; height: 50px;" />
<img alt="" src="/Portals/1/TWIT.png" style="width: 50px; height: 50px;" />
<img alt="" src="/Portals/1/FB.png" style="width: 50px; height: 50px;" />
<img alt="" src="/Portals/1/PIN.png" style="width: 50px; height: 50px;" />&nbsp;</div>
<div style="text-align: center;">Email, Add to Wishlist, Tweet, Facebook or Pin your inspiration!</div>
</li>
</ul>
</div>
<div class="menu-item">
<h4 style="text-align: center;"><a href="#">ASK A QUESTION</a></h4>
<ul>
<li></li>
</ul>
</div>
</nav>

 

 

Place the following CSS inside the design studio and adjust it according to your needs/color/text/ect.
