Vertical drop down menu with jQuery

jGlideMenu is a vertical menu that can be dragged and dropped so that the reader can place it anywhere. In addition, he can browse through the tabs in a very peculiar manner that comes with a sliding effect giving a sexy touch.

One of the advantages is that it can store a large number of links and can be removed anytime by clicking the 'Close' button.

Note:

The notes in green show you some parts that can be customized. If you want the menu to be static, let's say that you want to add it in the sidebar, then remove the script in red. Also, you will need to remove the snippet below as well in the CSS code:
position: absolute; /* Change 'absolute' with fixed if you want it to float */
top: 50px; /* Distance from the top of the window */
right: 760px; /* Distance from right */
Finally, click the 'Save Template' button to save the changes.

3. Go to 'Layout', click on 'Add a gadget' link and paste the structure of the menu inside a 'HTML/Javascript' gadget:
<div class="jGM_box" id="jGlide_001">

<!-- First level links -->
<ul id="tile_001" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the first level">
<li rel="tile_002">Link 1</li>
<li rel="tile_003">Link 2</li>
<li rel="tile_004">Link 3</li>
<li rel="tile_006">Link 4</li>
<li rel="tile_007">Link 5</li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 6</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 7</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 8</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 9</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 10</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 11</a></li>
</ul>

<!-- Links for the second level -->
<ul id="tile_002" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li rel="tile_005">Link 1.1</li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.2</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.3</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.4</a></li>
</ul>

<ul id="tile_003" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 2.1</a></li>
<li rel="tile_008">Link 2.2</li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 2.3</a></li>
</ul>

<ul id="tile_004" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 3.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 3.2</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 3.3</a></li>
</ul>

<ul id="tile_006" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 4.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 4.2</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 4.3</a></li>
</ul>

<ul id="tile_007" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 5.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 5.2</a></li>
</ul>

<!-- Links for the third level -->
<ul id="tile_005" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the third level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.1.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.1.2</a></li>
</ul>

<ul id="tile_008" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the third level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.2.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.2.2</a></li>
</ul>

</div>
Add the URLs of the links and the titles that you want to appear in the menu and Save the changes.

How the Vertical drop down menu works?

If you want to add more links to the first level, then add another line like this:
<li><a href="URL address">Link 12</a></li>
To add one more level to the link, then the line should be like this:
<li rel="tile_0010">Link 5</li>
Then in the area of ​​the second or third level, add it like this:
<ul id="tile_0010" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 5.1</a></li>
<li><a href="Url address">Link 5.2</a></li>
</ul>
If you look closely here, the link takes the REL attribute which must be the same as the ID we put on the second level. These IDs should not be repeated and always be unique. It may sound complicated, but once you understand the concept, you'll see that it's actually pretty simple.

When you add enough links, there will be some arrows on the top & bottom of the list which will help you navigate through the rest of the links - either up or down - on mouseover.

Throughout the menu structure, we can change the Menu name and the descriptions, as well.

Final note

As this menu is made with JQuery, please make sure to have only one version of it.
