Add Image in the menu

How can you add an image in the main menu and should be the dimensions

you would need to edit the webassist/plugins/main_menu/menu.php file and add an inline style for the background image, for example:

change:
<li class="top"><span><a href="../../../index.php">Home</a></span></li>

to:
<li class="top"><span><a href="../../../index.php" style="background-image: url('plugins/path/to/image.jpg');">Home</a></span></li>


the dimensions will change from theme to theme, 90 X 35 is a good starting point though

Menu

Does that mean I will be able to set the height from 55 to 40px of navigation as well, when I do that the banner underneath floats to the right.

Also do I add the image to the index.php file or the css

you need to edit the theme css to change the height of the navigation, not the menu file.


send a link to your site and i can give more information


for the image on the menu, by adding the inline style:
style="background-image: url('plugins/path/to/image.jpg');

to the menu item, you are attaching the image to the menu, you don't need to add it anywhere else.

in the webassist/themes/three_col_new/css/crazy_styles.css file, you need to edit the height of the #navWrapper selector, and the height and line-height for the #cssmw li.top selector to change the menu items height.
