Create Attractive, SEO-Friendly Web Menus With CSS3 Menu Maker

March 2, 2013

If you’ve visited the Graphics Unleashed Web site or the Graphics Unleashed Blog in the past couple of days, you may have noticed we installed new menus at the top of each page. Below is a screenshot of a portion of the menu with one item dropped down.

First and foremost, I hope you find the new menus more attractive and more functional for your navigation of the site. If there is a way we can improve them, please let me know. In addition, I made a few more changes to the sidebar on blog pages that I feel makes them look more attractive. Feel free to post a comment on this blog post and let me know what you think.

I also want to talk about the product I used to create the menus. It is called CSS3 Menu and a free trial is available if you want to take it for a test drive. There are a wide variety of templates that you can use as a starting point. If there is a menu you like, they probably have a template that is similar to it. Maybe you aren’t crazy about the color scheme of the template so you can easily choose the colors you prefer.

When the code for the menus is output, it is almost all done with HTML and CSS code compatible with all modern browsers. This also means the code is SEO friendly! Those of you who have basic HTML and CSS knowledge, may also want to tweak the code a bit to get exactly what you want. I wasn’t crazy about the spacing between menu items so I adjusted it in the code. It was also important to add the code for search functionality and I had to do that manually. Luckily it was just one line of code so it wasn’t very difficult.

Trying to create attractive menus from scratch would be difficult and time consuming. CSS3 Menu makes it much easier and saved me a huge amount of time!
