i want to animate a div on mouseover

i also want a unordered list to slide down.

Here is the page - hover on "the collective"


how can i achieve this? it seems to bounce etc

my jquery was:

  function() {
      top: '+=80'
    }, 500);
  function() {
      top: '-=80'
    }, 500);

That has to rate in the top most annoying broken jquery based menus.

For something like that you could just use slideToggle()

And is this div under the element you want to slide down? If so it will automatically move down as well (unless you have some rigged CSS)

This would be easier if you actually showed your code and not referred to someone else's website.

well its my site - thought easier to show you in context

yes the sub nav is positioned absolutely. Perhaps there is another way of positioning it buts its actually wider than its parent so this was easiest

you can see it functions but a lot of bouncing etc that im unsure how to fix...

If you can make a test page at http://jsfiddle.net
Or attach your html/css

You have to chain your animations if they are absolutely positioned.
