I'm looking to build a dropdown menu like what Facebook has done (See below for screenshot). I'm pretty well-versed in HTML/CSS, with basic jQuery knowledge, but actually, I have never built a dropdown.
I have done research in the past and I understand that there are several ways to build a dropdown menu. In this particular situation, what is the best way to build this Facebook-styled dropdown, with graceful degradation?
Thanks in advanced for any tip!
Max is absolutely right, simple HTML and CSS is probably all that's needed here.
A simple "Suckerfish" menu as they are sometimes called, will probably do the trick for you. A List Apart has an article on building these, and HTML Dog has a good example of one. Of course the way the menu looks is entirely up to you.
