(With Drop Shadow / Gradient
Shine)
7 new Codes added in the Background.txt (With and Without Gradient Effect with 7 Different Colors, All codes are ready to COPY & PAST!


There are 2 Different Tutorials and 2 differen styles

A good advice will be "not to just JUMP in it", but look at both of the Tutorials, and If were YOU, I would def go for Tutorial 2 because it has the Shine and Gradient effect.


Tutorial 1: Image "Drop Shadow & Gradient effect!

Example Image

(Shines when hover)






Tutorial 2
NO "Drop Shadow & NO Gradient effect!

Also Other Colors Available:

I have added extra Background codes inside a txt file. Now a new code for TRANSPARENT background added inside the file "Background.txt"! And there are codes ready for 7 different Backgrouds, Like the image below! With and Without Shining effect! All in the Background.txt. Download the file and open it with a NOTEPAD or TEXT EDITOR, and get copy the code from there!

SideBars from Background.txt Example:




Choice of a Custom URL Path and Image
If you decided to change the code and Icons and make your own icons, then let me show you how to change the code! Below you will see what every COLOR stands for!

Blue Color = URL to the Exact Page
Red Color = Icon Path and Name
Green = Title when you HOVER over the icon

Short Code Example:
<a href="FULL URL" title="GIVE A TITILE"><img src="ICON PATH"></a></li>

Hallo,

at first, sorry for my bad english.

Is the path to the image in your code correct? The upload of the folder is "images/menu" and in your code it is "images/test".

The 3 lines below will do the job, but you must keep changing a few times, untill it fits.. The code below is already added in the code I have provided.. So just change these 3 optiones to make it fit to the right!

Its because I think you havnt seen my new instructions, but anyways, I have made the code so it fits with your template, and when you hover the icons will shine all arround.

Use the code below, and read the rest of my explanation below:

Now if you wanted to change the Gradient or the Shadow, then change the line that I have marked in red, and only change the NUMBERS or DIGGITs in blue color, IF you want to change your shadow color.

First go to Go to this link your RGB CODE: http://www.tayloredmktg.com/rgb/

Find the line below in the CODE:
box-shadow: 0 0 6px 1px rgb(210,105,30);

Only replace the BLUE DIGGITs or NUMBERS with your rgb code from this site http://www.tayloredmktg.com/rgb/

GOOD LUCK
