Lovely job. Hardly requires an explanation.
Can the bg image sizes be changed? I understand that all 3 images have to be equal in size, but do they have to be 800 x 542?
Can the Main menu bar's size be varied?
BTW, may your enthusiasm last to bring the codrops repertoire here as lovely extensions for WWB users, may I present my personal wishlist here?

2 http://tympanus.net/codrops/2010/05/14/ ... th-jquery/
3 http://tympanus.net/codrops/2010/04/29/ ... th-jquery/
4 http://tympanus.net/codrops/2011/02/18/ ... e-sliders/ so much here to drool over

6 http://tympanus.net/codrops/2011/01/28/ ... eb-design/ wing cheng, cupcup
7 http://tympanus.net/Tutorials/ElegantAccordion/ Any good accordion that goes the full length of the screen with wide panels unfolding out, with no restriction on number of panels
8 http://tympanus.net/codrops/2010/01/23/ ... -inspired/ Inspiring stuff here
Phew!
Sorry about the list, and thanks, perhaps in anticipation? :D

You can choose different image for submenu background.
Main image can be more than 800 x 542, will not be resized, will show up 1:1.
I will look into change the main bar size...

Hi..

Added:
Change Menu width size. Please make sure you read the notes.
In order to work properly you need to set the 1 & 2 image width equally.
Example:
Set the Menu width to 602 ( 600 + 2 px, if you don't give 2 or 3 px more then, the third image will show under the menu)
Set the 1 image width to 200
Set the 2 image width to 400
You done.

If you have any question please post it here.
PS. If you change the Menu size you need to create different transparent sub images to cover all area.
That's all.. Enjoy it.

If I take a look at the preview my menu shows up as a textmenu at the left side of my webpage.
If you use this extension and you take a look at the preview, should it be shown good or do you first have to publish it?
I hope someone can help me

Thanks for your reply!
Without any adjustment, this is what the extension shows on preview:
Main Site
Sub Title 1
Sub Title 2
Sub Title 3
Sub Title 4
Main Site
Main Site

This textmenu is displayed at the left corner of the background image. Is there some default in WB7 I need to change, before I can use this extension?

EDIT: :idea: Found my own answer.. changed the document type from none to HTML :)

When I published this extension for the first time, I saw the images. I have changed an image and now I can't see the images anymore. I have already removed all the files and published again, but still can't see the background images. Can you tell me if you see the images or maybe someone can tell me what I am doing wrong.

I couldn't response sooner...there are only 2 files in the css folder: style.css and styleIE6.css
(It seems that I have the same problem with the Fresh Bottom SlideOut Menu)

Hi..

Ok.. please do the following.

1) Create a new web site.
2) Insert the extension
3) export to local folder
4) Open the folder you have export the web site ( You must see two folders, css and images )
5) open the index.html or what ever you have named the page

Tell me if everything looks ok...
If not, go to css folder and open style.css, then try to find the line
.bg1{
background-image: url(*********************);
}
where ***** is what ever has inside, and posted the ******* here.

I did an export without any changes and everything works fine. I made another export with my images (only changed the images) and I don't see the images.
This is what the css file says:
}
.bg1{
background-image: url(../images/Pumi_216%542.JPG);
}
.bg2{
background-image: url(../images/Pyth_057 542 Black.jpg);
}
.bg3{
background-image: url(../images/Caro_199 542.jpg);
}
