Understanding CSS may take times for some of people. Especially if it is dealing with CSS tab buttons for the website. CSS Tab Designer will make that easy for you. Because you don’t need to be a master of CSS script to implement amazing horizontal menus (tabs) or vertical menus design in your website.

I have known this tool since two years back and still rely on it quite sometimes. The tabs in my Graphic Identity blog are using Centered Sliding Doors tab style. I modified their grey background into white, to blend with my main column background color.

There are 11 designers who have contributed their CSS tab design in this software. All tabs (60+ different designs/colors supported) have been designed beautifully and easy to modify using CSS Tab Designer. The code generated for these tabs is strict xhtml compliant code.

Start from the columns in the middle, where you can find all Tab Styles. Every tab style has its own name label. Pick one tab style. In this example, I choose Tab Menu 8.

You almost finish, in another few steps. After the installment, CSS Tab Designer by default will create folder directories in your computer system hardisk, which labeled CSS Tab Designer 2. Find the folder, and go to styles folder.

In styles folder you can find each of Tab Style types that you have found in this software interface. As we know, every tab style has its own name label. Find a folder which is exactly related to your tabs and copy the images inside that folder.

Upload these images to your web hosting server and replace their image URL (inside the code script) with the new one that you would have after uploading files.
