I have put together a slider menu on this page:
On the left, but i don't quite like the way it works.. Was thinking of using a nice jQuery slider.. Is there a slider out there or examples of which do the same?
Also, when i click to go to a different page the slider returns back to normal again, so i would prefer it remains on the category the user has selected..
Any examples or advice would be much appreciated..
If you want a customized sliding effect, then you could use the .animate property (check out http://api.jquery.com), that you can use on any element in the page.
to resolve your menu resetting problems, you have to options:
1. Make an AJAX request and serve your response in the target area, so you never leave the page
2. If you want to have a new page (for navigation history purposes I suppose....), then you could use a query string to determine the active category. For example:
You can then use this query string to display the correct category either in JS or in your back-end
