How to create Vertical text/link navigation menu

How to create Vertical text/link navigation menu
The navigation menu styles we mostly see around on web are sidebar menu, vertical menu, fixed to header menu etc. It’s very rare to spot a site with vertical text/link style menu, right? So here it is I developed this vertical text/link style menu which offers; links are hanging from top side of site, and links will be shown vertically. This menu made with CSS3 transform formula to make links appear vertically and added opacity effect and cheerful flat color to each link enhanced with Google web font. Let’s see how it looks like and to create this menu. Read on-

How to create Vertical text/link navigation menu

How to create Vertical text/link navigation menu

How to:
Step 1: First create a navigation class; and all positioning codes-

.nav {
    position: relative;
        float:right;
        top: -3px;
}


Step 2: Here we design the nav’s li elements; with CSS3 transform: rotate(-90deg); width; text positioning and <li> positioning.

.nav ul li {
    -webkit-transform: rotate(-90deg);
  -moz-transform: rotate(-90deg);
  transform: rotate(-90deg);
    width: 100px;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding:5px 10px 10px 18px;
    float: left;
    background-color: #7f9db9;
    text-align: left;
    margin-left:-50px
}


Step 3: Now designing the ‘a link’ elements with font style, size, decoration and color.

.nav ul li a {
    color: #fff;
    text-decoration: none;
    display: block;
    font-family: 'Josefin Sans', sans-serif;
    font-weight:500;
    font-size:16px;
}


Step 4: Then individual color and hover color setting up for <li> elements with rgba color codes; we creating 5 link slot so setting up their color respectively with l1, l2, l3, l4 and l5 <li> classes.

.nav ul li.l1 {
    background-color: rgba(243, 156, 18,0.65);
}
.nav ul li.l1:hover {
    background-color: rgb(243, 156, 18);
}
.nav ul li.l2 {
    background-color: rgba(207, 0, 15,0.65);
}
.nav ul li.l2:hover {
    background-color: rgb(207, 0, 15);
}
.nav ul li.l3{
    background-color: rgba(54, 215, 183,0.65)
}
.nav ul li.l3:hover {
    background-color: rgb(54, 215, 183);
}
.nav ul li.l4{
    background-color: rgba(25, 181, 254,0.65)
}
.nav ul li.l4:hover {
    background-color: rgb(25, 181, 254);
}
.nav ul li.l5{
    background-color: rgba(65,117,160,0.65)
}
.nav ul li.l5:hover {
    background-color: rgb(65,117,160);
}


Step 5: It’s time to call ready CSS classes to HTML; So I’m using a <div> to call .nav you may call it under <nav> for integrating design to HTML5. Adding <ul>, <li> and <a> elements. And finally finishing the design.

    <div class="nav">
        <ul>
            <li class='l1'><a href="#">Home</a></li>
            <li class='l2'><a href="#">Blogger</a></li>
            <li class='l3'><a href="#">Wordpress</a></li>
            <li class='l4'><a href="#">About</a></li>
            <li class='l5'><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
    </div>


Step 6: Place links in "#" and change anchor texts as you like. Change color code of <li> with your desired rgba color. And here are the full codes of this vertical text style navigation menu:

<!--crawlist.net HTML starts-->   
<div class="nav">
        <ul>
            <li class='l1'><a href="#">Home</a></li>
            <li class='l2'><a href="#">Blogger</a></li>
            <li class='l3'><a href="#">Wordpress</a></li>
            <li class='l4'><a href="#">About</a></li>
            <li class='l5'><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
    </div>
<!--crawlist.net HTML ends-->    
<style>/*crawlist.net CSS starts*/
@import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Josefin+Sans);
.nav {
    position: relative;
        float:right;
        top: -3px;
}
.nav ul li {
    -webkit-transform: rotate(-90deg);
  -moz-transform: rotate(-90deg);
  transform: rotate(-90deg);
    width: 100px;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding:5px 10px 10px 18px;
    float: left;
    background-color: #7f9db9;
    text-align: left;
    margin-left:-50px
}
.nav ul li a {
    color: #fff;
    text-decoration: none;
    display: block;
    font-family: 'Josefin Sans', sans-serif;
    font-weight:500;
    font-size:16px;
}
.nav ul li.l1 {
    background-color: rgba(243, 156, 18,0.65);
}
.nav ul li.l1:hover {
    background-color: rgb(243, 156, 18);
}
.nav ul li.l2 {
    background-color: rgba(207, 0, 15,0.65);
}
.nav ul li.l2:hover {
    background-color: rgb(207, 0, 15);
}
.nav ul li.l3{
    background-color: rgba(54, 215, 183,0.65)
}
.nav ul li.l3:hover {
    background-color: rgb(54, 215, 183);
}
.nav ul li.l4{
    background-color: rgba(25, 181, 254,0.65)
}
.nav ul li.l4:hover {
    background-color: rgb(25, 181, 254);
}
.nav ul li.l5{
    background-color: rgba(65,117,160,0.65)
}
.nav ul li.l5:hover {
    background-color: rgb(65,117,160);
}
/*crawlist.net CSS ends*/</style>
