A drop down menu built with CSS and javascript that will show a tooltip like sub-menu when hovers over an item of the navigation. The tooltip submenu will appear either above or below the menu, depending on where more space is available. Scroll down to see it appearing below.

How to use it:

1. Markup html structure

<ul id="cbp-tm-menu" class="cbp-tm-menu">
<li> <a href="#">Menu 1</a> </li>
<li> <a href="#">Menu 2</a>
<ul class="cbp-tm-submenu">
<li><a href="#" class="cbp-tm-icon-archive">Submenu 1</a></li>
<li><a href="#" class="cbp-tm-icon-cog">Submenu 2</a></li>
<li><a href="#" class="cbp-tm-icon-location">Submenu 3</a></li>
...
</ul>
</li>
<li> <a href="#">Menu 3</a>
<ul class="cbp-tm-submenu">
<li><a href="#" class="cbp-tm-icon-archive">Submenu 1</a></li>
<li><a href="#" class="cbp-tm-icon-cog">Submenu 2</a></li>
<li><a href="#" class="cbp-tm-icon-location">Submenu 3</a></li>
...
</ul>
</li>
<li> <a href="#">Menu 4</a>
<ul class="cbp-tm-submenu">
<li><a href="#" class="cbp-tm-icon-archive">Submenu 1</a></li>
<li><a href="#" class="cbp-tm-icon-cog">Submenu 2</a></li>
<li><a href="#" class="cbp-tm-icon-location">Submenu 3</a></li>
...
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
