Information How to put images between menu items

I scoured the forums for an answer I could live with, but I didn't find one.

After over an hour of trial and error, I have figured it out and thought I would share my newly acquired abilities. Lord knows if i've got/had this problem someone else has too.

The trick is to make it your background image on the links within the menu. Getting the positioning can be a little tedious, but that's just the way she goes.

This is the CSS for my menu:
HTML Code:
div#menu1 {
height: 36px; 
background: transparent; 
padding:0 0 0 110px !important;

div#menu1 ul.rMenu {
background: transparent;
border: none 0px; 

div#menu1 ul.rMenu li {

ul.rMenu li a:link, 
ul.rMenu li a:visited,  
ul.rMenu li a:active, 
ul.rMenu li { 
background-color: transparent !important;

div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a,
ul.rMenu li a:hover{
border:none !important;
list-style-type: none;
display: -moz-inline-stack;
display: inline-block;
zoom: 1;
*display: inline;
padding:1em 2.5em 1em 1em;
background: url(http://www.montgomerytrees.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/menu-slash.jpg) no-repeat right center;

#menu-item-37 a{
background-image:none !important;
I'd post a link to it working, but the site isn't live yet. So here's a little screencap.

You have to make sure that both the active AND hover link states are included in the CSS with the background image otherwise said image will disappear on hover.

I hope this helps someone!


background, image, item, menu
