Hi to all, i am asking advices on how to achieve this. See image.

I am thinking about a jQuery list menu.

PROBLEM --> How to control that <ul><li> from the CMS?? Image Gallery module?

I'd simply add an image field called "MenuImage" or something to the Page class and then just show that when outputting the menu in the template. What js you actually use to make the slider is secondary.

Finally got it to work.

I created a simple <ul><li> sliding menu using jQuery as a tween engine.

I then populated appropriate <li> with <% control Page(xxx) %>$Image, $NewsTitle<% end_control %>

Works like a charm.
