Drupal Menu Navigation

Hi there all,

I am pretty new to drupal, what i want is to make a navigation on the left side of menu, which is seperate from the main navigation of the website. each <li> item uses a different class and the class name changes through javascript.

Here is the url link for the thing i want, i have made an html version of the website, and now iam transferring it to drupal
http://stage.hepcvictoria.couchcreative.net.au/

on the left hand side there is a navigation e.g : what is Hepatitis?

how can i make this menu work in drupal, i have already made a custom menu called side nav. now need to theme it to look like the above.

cheers,
Tayyab

While I could not access the url provided it sounds like you need to add unique classes to menu items.

There is a module http://drupal.org/project/menu_attributes which allows you to add classes and ids to menu links but not list items. Maybe you could use the module as a guide to help.

You are specifically looking at using the following functions to achieve this.
http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme_menu_item/6
http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme_menu_item_link/6

Also, drupal_add_js() to link your jQuery file.

I hope this helps, Chris.
