Build a User Settings Dropdown Menu with jQuery

Build a User Settings Dropdown Menu with jQuery

There are many social networking websites designed with a specific layout in mind. User profile pages are some of the more complex designs included with a community-based network. You’ll often have access to edit user profile settings, subscriptions, and e-mail options. I want to create such a simple menu for a minimalist Digg-style layout.

In this tutorial I have actually built two working demo pages. The first runs on jQuery to fade the menu in and out as you hover. The 2nd demo is built using just CSS effects which display the submenu using the :hover selector. It’s even easier to combine both methods for legacy support – however at that point I’d recommend the CSS-only methodology. But you can see for yourself in the live demo examples and build this yourself by following my code below.
