Vertical drop down menu with jQuery

jGlideMenu is a vertical menu that can be dragged and dropped so that the reader can place it anywhere, and in addition, he can browse through the tabs in a very peculiar manner that comes with a sliding effect giving a sexy touch.

One of the advantages is that it can store a large number of links and can be removed anytime if we want.

3) Now go to Layout and paste the structure of the menu inside a HTML/Javascript gadget:
<div class="jGM_box" id="jGlide_001">

<!-- Here all the links of the first level -->
<ul id="tile_001" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the first level">
<li rel="tile_002">Link 1</li>
<li rel="tile_003">Link 2</li>
<li rel="tile_004">Link 3</li>
<li rel="tile_006">Link 4</li>
<li rel="tile_007">Link 5</li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 6</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 7</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 8</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 9</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 10</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 11</a></li>
</ul>

<!-- Here all the links of the second level -->
<ul id="tile_002" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li rel="tile_005">Link 1.1</li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.2</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.3</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.4</a></li>
</ul>

<ul id="tile_003" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 2.1</a></li>
<li rel="tile_008">Link 2.2</li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 2.3</a></li>
</ul>

<ul id="tile_004" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 3.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 3.2</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 3.3</a></li>
</ul>


<ul id="tile_006" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 4.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 4.2</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 4.3</a></li>
</ul>

<ul id="tile_007" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 5.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 5.2</a></li>
</ul>


<!-- Here all the links of the third level -->
<ul id="tile_005" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the third level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.1.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.1.2</a></li>
</ul>


<ul id="tile_008" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the third level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.2.1</a></li>
<li><a href="URL address">Link 1.2.2</a></li>
</ul>

</div>
Add the URLs of the links and the names of the tabs and that's it.
If you want to add more links to the first level, then add another line like this:
<li><a href="URL address">Link 12</a></li>
If you want to add another level to the link, then the line should be like this:
<li rel="tile_0010">Link 5</li>
Then in the area of ​​the second or third level, add a piece like this:
<ul id="tile_0010" class="jGlide_001_tiles" title="Menu" alt="Description of the second level">
<li><a href="URL address">Link 5.1</a></li>
<li><a href="Url address">Link 5.2</a></li>
</ul>
Here you should keep something in mind, if you look closely the link takes the REL attribute which must be the same as the ID we put on the second level, these IDs should not repeat and always be unique.
Yes, it sounds complicated, but once you understand the concept, you'll see that is actually pretty simple.

In the area of ​​the styles, there are the parts that can be customized. If you want the menu to be static, let's say you want to add it in the sidebar, then delete the first code of the script that is in italics. And in the CSS styles, remove this part:
position: absolute; /* Change absolute with fixed if you want it to float */
top: 50px; /* Distance above */
right: 760px; /* Distance to the right */
When there are many links then, there will be showing some arrows, so when you mouseover them, it will show the rest of the links either up or down.

Throughout the menu structure we can change the Menu name and the descriptions as well.

As this menu is made with JQuery, it is recommended to verify to have only one version of it.
