Menu style customization

You can customize menu styles in the style sheets your site uses.

Navigate to Content Management > Design > Style Sheets to customize style sheets.

Supplementary page navigation menu example code

In the following example, look at the CSS class selectors and rules. Also, review how the block containers (div.cms_menu_section_blocks) are defined based on the outer container (TD.layout_content_submenu_column). The outer container is actually a part of the site layout.

This concept is clearer if you compare the styles to the styles used in the super menu further down in the example. This example shows that there is no need to make a completely new menu system. You can use CSS to change the look and feel of existing menus.

Super menu sections example code

The following menu is a simple float grid. The defaults are written first. Then, below the "SUPER MENU VARIATIONS..." comment, the defaults are overwritten by adding a containing div with a unique class. In the code that renders the header for the base system, the bottom menu resides in a table cell with the class of cms_header_bottom_menu (refer to the TD.cms_header_bottom_menu CSS selector).

Then, below the "SUPER MENU VARIATIONS..." comment, the defaults are overwritten by adding a containing div with a unique class. In the code that renders the header for the base system, the bottom menu resides in a table cell with the class of "cms_header_bottom_menu" (note the TD.cms_header_bottom_menu CSS selector).
