Pull-up Menu plus Multiple subs

Hello there, it is very long time for new tip right?Please accept my apology by this menu called Pull-up Menu.Besides, this menu also has multiple subs.Great?Why is it called Pull-up menu ?With the common menus,most templates use drop down menus, it means they will drop from top to down.So of course, pull-up means it will operate by the opposite way.This is the CSS menu, one other kind of menu that I wanna introduce you and provide you,trust me you cannot see these kinds of menu much on the other webs/blogs.Let's make it!


1.Add this code before the ]]></b:skin> tag, then read the instruction under the code to complete this step :

/* ================================================================

all times.

=================================================================== */

.preload1 {background: url(blank_over.gif);}
.preload2 {background: url(blank_overa.gif);}
/* top margin for this demo only */
#nav {padding:0; margin:200px 0 0; list-style:none; height:36px; background:#fff; position:relative; z-index:500; font-family:verdana, arial, sans-serif;}
#nav li.top {display:block; float:left; padding-top:5px;}
#nav li a.top_link {display:block; float:left; height:36px; line-height:27px; color:#ddd; text-decoration:none; font-size:11px; font-weight:bold; padding:0 0 0 12px; cursor:pointer;background: url(blank.gif);}
#nav li a.top_link span {float:left; display:block; padding:0 24px 0 12px; height:36px;background:url(blank.gif) right top;}
#nav li a.top_link span.down {float:left; display:block; padding:0 24px 0 12px; height:36px; background:url(blanka.gif) no-repeat right top;}
#nav li a.top_link:hover {color:#fff; background: url(blank_over.gif) no-repeat;}
#nav li a.top_link:hover span {background:url(blank_over.gif) no-repeat right top; line-height:29px;}
#nav li a.top_link:hover span.down {background:url(blank_overa.gif) no-repeat right top; line-height:29px;}

#nav li:hover > a.top_link {color:#fff; background: url(blank_over.gif) no-repeat;}
#nav li:hover > a.top_link span {background:url(blank_over.gif) no-repeat right top; line-height:29px;}
#nav li:hover > a.top_link span.down {background:url(blank_overa.gif) no-repeat right top; line-height:29px;}

/* Default list styling */

#nav li:hover {position:relative; z-index:200; background:#fff;}

/* keep the 'next' level invisible by placing it off screen. */
#nav ul,
#nav li:hover ul ul,
#nav li:hover ul li:hover ul ul,
#nav li:hover ul li:hover ul li:hover ul ul,
#nav li:hover ul li:hover ul li:hover ul li:hover ul ul
{position:absolute; left:-9999px; top:-9999px; width:0; height:0; margin:0; padding:0; list-style:none;}

#nav li:hover ul
{left:0; bottom:40px; top:auto; background: #fff; padding:3px; border:1px solid #4f8383; white-space:nowrap; width:auto; height:auto; z-index:300;}
* html #nav li:hover ul {width:0;}
#nav li:hover ul li
{display:block; position:relative; float:left; font-weight:normal; background:#fff; clear:left;}
#nav li:hover ul li a
{display:block; font-size:11px; height:20px; line-height:20px; padding:0 5px; color:#000; text-decoration:none;}

#nav li:hover ul li:hover.fly {background:#4f8383;}

#nav li:hover ul li:hover.fly > a.fly {background:#4f8383; color:#fff; text-decoration:none;}

#nav li:hover ul li:hover ul,
#nav li:hover ul li:hover ul li:hover ul,

Note: The red code,you will get them-the images in the file you need to download above.Host them and paste instead of the red code.

2.Now at this step, you have 2 choices to add this code : create a HTML/JavaScript and paste or paste directly in your source template in case you know exactly where it is:
