I am digging for a multicolor vertical drop down menu... preferably something with an easy editor to add/change menu items.

I have found several for horizontal menus, but none for vertical menus.

I'm interested in any vertical menu, single column expand or pop-out, which allows unique colors for each top-level menu group

e.g.

Home  (red)
Category1 (blue)
   Category 1.1 (blue)
Category 2 (yellow)
   Category 2.2 (yellow)
   Category 2.2 (yellow)

etc...

Hi Landho,

This is simple to do with plain CSS.  What is the exact functionality you are looking for?

I am looking for an extension for Dreamweaver, or other GUI tool for creation of the menu - rather than having to have hack the code each time a menu edit is required.

Try adding a Spry menu from Dreamweaver.  The resulting CSS file allows you to distinguish at that level.

don't suggest Spry, please, so many people come to EE with unsolvable problems with Spry, I am telling them to dump it for normal DHTML menus.  (no believe = search for Spry, last few months.)

Realize that many are "color coordinated", but that is the easiest part to change, just use a different color for each line.

Exactly what I am trying to avoid...

I understand that it is easy to go in AFTER using the Spry gui and altering the .css and html... what I am looking for is DHTML vertical menu generator that DOESN'T expect me to go an tickle the code afterward.

So I can open up the fancy tool and view my menu and sub-categories, and click on the sub-category and choose which color it should be.

They are available for horizontal menus (e.g. the one from pluginlab) but not for verticle {probably because they're eyesores, but that's not the point here}
