sub menu

Using the css menu action is there a way to have the sub menu widths be to fit the content as like here?

Cheers!

I could swear that Tim Plumb wrote an Action to help add more style options to the CSS Menu Action, but I can’t find it anywhere. Tim, am I hallucinating?

Probably! :slight_smile:

I’ve a huge virtual box of Actions, Action parts and ideas for new Actions. Maybe it is time I sorted them all out and had a virtual garage sale?

Regarding the CSS Menus Action I’ve written several that extend or modify the original Action’s output;

  1. BAM* (http://actionsforge.com/actions/view/238-bam-big-area-menus) which allows you to insert regular divs into standard submenus to make menus that can be any shape, size or contain any content
  2. CSS Sub Menu Position (Menus) which allows you to position sub menus anywhere you like. Above the main menu, more to the left etc.
  3. CSS Menu Patch (css menu). A simple patch Action to allow for variable width menu items. This is no longer needed as the CSS Menu Action now supports this itself.
  4. CSS Menus Extras - This (as yet unreleased) Action adds lots of extras to the standard CSS menu such as shadows, rounded corners and transitions. This maybe the Action you’ve heard me discuss before Walter.

I even wrote an Action back in Freeway 3.5 that turned a table-based navigation item into a CSS menu. This was long before the CSS Menu Action and the idea was that you’d design the menu as you wanted it to look in Freeway and the Action silently converted it to a much more standards-based CSS item. For example; CSS Menu example

Looking at this list you may think I’m somewhat fixated with the CSS Menus Action! I probably am but it’s a great Action and offers a lot of design versatility in a small package. It certainly is worth exploring all of the Action’s options.

Justin, if you want fixed width submenus I’m sure I can do that for you with a custom Action quite easily and cheaply.
Regards,
Tim.

  • It was only when I uploaded the BAM Action to ActionsForge that it became ‘Big Area Menus’. Up until then it was always ‘Big Ass Menus’ but I decided the name may offend so I changed it at the last minute.

And just to jump on here concerning Walters Kickstarter project.

I didn’t know a couple of these actions existed, never mind what they did, so Walter’s mission would have been very useful just for this sort of thing. Let’s hope it kicks off again. You can count me in Walt!

Tim - What about not fixed width but content width? The same way the menu works in the main menu - applied to the sub menu?

Hi Ernie,
I’ll be in touch. I feel we’re at a new dawn of inappropriate product names. :slight_smile:

Tim.

Cheers!

I know its a long time ago but did this ever get resolved i.e. the submenu items fitting the width of the content?

Four years seems a long time ago in web development time!
