NEW UPDATE: 09 - 08 - 2012


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>


Full code:

Very nice.
Method 1 worked like a charm for me.

Only thing you need to pay attention to:
When following the standard instructions and uploading the "menu" folder to your image folder the path to the images in your installation instructions doesn't match up.
You are linking to "images/test/". You need to remove "/test"

Like the mod but decided the images were a little too small so I went with some different ones with less background but the same overall size (28x28). To me it looks a little better this way.



If anyone wants the alternative images you can download them from here:
