Quick Tip: RTLing the CSS3 "border-radius" property

lebanese nightS - Tue, 22/07/2014 - 8:07am

Here's a quick tip when RTLing one of the cool CSS3 properties: border-radius.

border-radius: top-left-and-bottom-right top-right-and-bottom-left
border-radius: top-left top-right-and-bottom-left bottom-right
border-radius: top-left top-right bottom-right bottom-left

All you need to do is add rtl: true to your options when initializing the slider:

RTLing an Apycom Menu

lebanese nightS - Tue, 16/07/2013 - 11:08am

I've received couple of requests to RTL the Apycom menus. They're really nice and animated jQuery menus that you can use for free(non-profit websites only). And like all other modern menu plugins, all styling can be controlled through CSS. So RTLing an Apycom menu is simply RTLing its CSS.
