Horizontal navigation menu: How To

Postby Pete R » April 26th, 2008, 11:00 am

Hello,

I am new to css/php but I have a wiki and Im currently trying to move the side navigation menu to the top in horizontal form. I dont really know where to start. I am using Mediawikis new Modern skin right now.

Ive changed the skin title and tried to do the basic set up in the php page, but beyond that I have no idea how/where to write the code.

Could anyone give me some tips on how to do this? Maybe a basic code I can plug in? I really appreciate your help.

Thanks!

You need to understand the skin code and get to know what's the output of each part, then you need to start modify new Modern skin or code a new skin as you want, you need to have a really good understanding of CSS as well for styling.

Only studies won't help, you go through the various sites and resources thoroughly, and also try to implement them, then you can come to know and learn how everything works.. There are minute customizations which you need to understand.

All the best...

You have to create the entire css for the horizontal menu afresh... And keep a note of the browser compatibility... If required create different css for different browsers....
