Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Creating Navigation Menus with jQuery.
Now when you download the exercise files there's going to be four folders inside of there, Files to add, Art Template, Snippet, and Final Project. Now if you're a premium subscriber to the lynda.com online training library you will have access to all of these folders. If you're not a Premium Member you'll have access to a free version of these exercise files which includes folders 1 and 3. Inside of folder 1 are all of the files we're going to be adding to our project to give us a jumpstart, including inside of the add to includes folder, a copy of jQuery, a copy of dropmenu, two CSS files, and a copy of a JS file that's empty but hooked into the HTML file that's out here in the main folder so that again you can get a jumpstart on a layout, and we can focus strictly on building the actual dropdown menu.
Inside of the Snippet folder are a series of CSS rules that relates specifically to the dropmenu plug-in, so I have these rules here as well. For the premium subscribers we have Art Templates, we have a source Photoshop file with all of the slices intact so you can customize your design before saving out your slices if you want. And in folder 4 is a copy of the final project. This is a full copy of what we'll be creating throughout the course, and it's also the project we looked at in the introduction video. So now that we're familiar with the exercise files, in the next movie we'll get started creating our project folders.
