CSS galleries are beautiful resources for getting inspired & promoting the websites we created.
In order to submit websites to these galleries, you need to:
- have a list of the galleries
- know which ones are more popular
- browse all of them one-by-one
MeeCSS is a free web-based application which eases this process. It is not an automated submission system which would not be ethical.
It simply asks you to fill the information that will be required (name, e-mail, website address, etc.) & with the help of an iframe, you can submit to the galleries one-by-one by copy-pasting the fields you had filled.
The most important part of designing a new site is the navigation or menu system, but this can be tricky, time consuming and often frustrating. You need something that will fit into your design and most importantly, allow your readers to navigate with ease. Below you will find 24 CSS (in some cases with a little jQuery) Navigation and Menu Tutorials to help you on your way.
URL : Vimeo-Like Top Navigation »
Description : If you like the top navigation used on Vimeo, you will love this tutorial. The menu drops down when you hover over the search box and tt offers you different search options that you can choose and narrow your search.
This is an excellent tut to give you an insight into how the high-end sites cleverly use CSS.
