Alternating text color links in menu... possible?
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all-

I'm not very experienced with CSS and custom code, so bear with me... I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to achieve the following with Atahualpa, CSS, or a plugin:

I'm after a menu bar or widget that can span the length below my header area with alternating link colors, as in my attached image. Essentially, I'd like to zebra stripe just the text for readability/design purposes.

If anyone could steer me in the right direction towards some applicable tutorials, etc., I would be really thankful. Or, if taking this on as a Luddite is madness, knowing that would be helpful too!

All the best, and thanks for a really helpful forum!

Apart from just writing some html you could add a widget area in the same place where %pages goes and add a widget to house this. It sort of looks like a Tag cloud widget would work except I'm not sure about the alternating color part.

Bottom line is there is not just one way to do this and it will probably take a bit of fiddling.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I'm pretty clueless about how to program the alternating color stuff, HTML or otherwise. I found this guide, but it doesn't do exactly what I'm after...

I guess I need to learn more about styles and widgets.

That guide is for alternating table rows. To do a checkerboard is going to be more work.
