Can my XenForo menu look like this?

    Can someone tell me if it's possible to have my XenForo menu look like this with some styling changes?


    I am beginning to work on my site and love this style of menu, but I don't know enough about css to know if something like this is possible.

    Thanks for any input!

    I do not see why not. You'll probably need to use firebug to check the css for that menu and apply it to where you want.

    Thanks! I am a play, mess up, reset, repeat kind of learner... but I like to know things are at least possible before I start. :)

    Thanks again!

    Moved from template modifications to general support.

    Thanks Brogan, I debated on where to put it..

    No worries.

    For future reference, the template modifications forum is if you're explaining how to do edit a template to add a new feature for example.

    All styling related questions currently go here in general support.

    Anything is possible. Of course, it'd take some major CSS edits and perhaps some jQuery for the browsers that don't support the child operator (>), but it's possible.

    Ok, so here is the deal.. There is a Joomla template I have run across I like a lot. I would like to attempt to get my forums to match it, I started playing around with the menu as it's strikingly different than the stock XenForo menu..

    Now that I have asked about the menu I am wondering is it possible to pay someone to convert a Joomla template? If I bought the template how hard is it to convert to XenForo? What kind of price are we talking? The template itself is $62 Can I get it converted to XenForo for $300? more... less?

    Here is the link to the Joomla Template I would like to mimic for a reference:

    Am I going about this the wrong way? Any insight on this would be great. Sorry if this post sounds like I am changing gears.. I am not a designer but want something more for me site.. rock and hard place.

    Perhaps if you post in Resource Requests with some detail on what you wish to accomplish, somebody can jump at you with a price and an ETA.

    Thanks, after playing with it tonight I think that might be the best thing to do.

    Thanks for your help!

    The only thing you might have to be wary of is copying the original design.

    I'm no expert in this area but it's something you may need to consider.

    That was why I thought I would have to buy the template even though I won't going to run Joomla. I was thinking that would allow me to use the template(even if it wasn't running Joomla)

    When I form my post in the Resource Request area, maybe someone can come up with something of their own similar. I don't need this design.. I just like the bright color and the way the menu looked and worked.

    Thanks for the thought though... one I will have to keep in mind definitely.

    That seems fairly clear cut then, thanks for that Shadab.

    Thanks Shadab!

    Now, I need to create a thread in the Resource Area and see who is interested in being hired to help me get to up and running.

    Thanks again for all your help guys!

    The Resources section is for styles, etc. which are released for general use.
    There isn't really a dedicated forum at the moment for asking for help on how to create a style.

    Ok, I will post it in the Resource Request section that James had mentioned earlier if you think that would be ok.
