To add a horizontal Lava Lamp navigation:

1. From your Blogger dashboard, navigate to Layouts and then Edit HTML.

2. Add the following javascript and style sheet link below right after the opening head tag of your blog:


<span id="preserve153fad06688e4daba0a63153cc59a967" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-"></script></span> <span id="preservec55a3f5b20c642859020b34d0b920624" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.easing.min.js"></script></span> <span id="preservee1ba8ce4b8c2419b8ec01f337d9c4f45" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.lavalamp.min.js"></script></span> <span id="preserve4cc7688c44874d529d432ce8ba0d6e6b" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script type="text/javascript"> $(function() { $("#1, #2, #3").lavaLamp({ fx: "backout", speed: 700, click: function(event, menuItem) { return false; } }); }); </script></span>





3. Next, you will need to add the following section code below to where you want the featured content box to appear. You can do this by adding a new HTML/JavaScript widget or paste it within your HTML section of your layout.


<ul class="lavaLampWithImage" id="1"> <li><a href="#">Home</a></li> <li><a href="#">Plant a tree</a></li> <li><a href="#">Travel</a></li> <li><a href="#">Ride an elephant</a></li> </ul>





0128Depending on the three, you will need to modify UL class name to the one you want to use: “lavaLampWithImage”, “lavaLampNoImage”, “lavaLampBottomStyle”

4. You should preview your blog first to see if all codes have been implemented correctly. If so, save your template and you’re finished.
