You can  grab the code and use it for free. However I strongly recommend to avoid hand-coding and use Swimbi app to generate the same CSS Menu.

Build your CSS Menu faster. Video tutorials.

Video introduction to Swimbi by Tom from

Swimbi app is a huge help for web designer or web developers. Swimbi Swift Menu Builder will save you time and money on over the counter headache meds when it comes to building navigation menus for your clients or yourself.

If you are like me one of the most annoying aspects of designing a website is the time you need to spend building the navigation menu. I feel like most of the time spent designing a website is spent on designing the navigation menu. I came across a software called Swimbi Swift Menu Builder. Do not confuse Swift in the title with the Swift Programming Language.  Swift stands for how fast you will be able to design a menu for your website. This software will help you quickly build stylish CSS menus for your website without all trial and error we have all done in the past and the best part you do not need any coding knowledge to use this software.

Sitewide update for static websites

Sitewide UpdateSitewide Update
Why iframes or frames are still widely used (by novice web developers)?
Despite the fact that frames (or iframes) considered as a bad practice, many website developers still use them to embed one part of a page into another. As for menu, it is considered as typical webpage repeating element and often inserted in iframes. Besides other drawbacks, drop down menu is limited by its own frame size and cannot overlap other frames. That's why we do not recommend using frames or iframes at all.

To help solve the problem of updating all pages we made the "Sitewide Update" or "Simple Template Engine" feature, to help our clients with simple static pages.

You can update not only navigation menu, but any repeating elements of your website.
Just add the prefix to the elements IDs "sw-repeat-" to make Swimbi update it.
Click "Publish" button as usual...
