A jQuery plugin for your menu. Suprisingly this does not exist already!? That is to say I looked pretty damn hard but couldnt find anything like it...
StepLadder - a menu animation plugin Must be called on a nested ul > li > ul > li
Usage: $('ul').stepLadder(time, fadetime); Where time is the amount of time before each li loads one after the other.
EDIT: Added delay and fade time variables to be inserted with call.
