I'd like to use something like jQuery's accordion menu, but have the triggered elements be angled. I'm guessing this isn't possible, but thought I'd see if anyone has tried it before.
One idea would be to go old-school and work with image maps. I haven't used an image map in years though, so that'd take a bit of testing to see if it's even possible.
Let me know if any clarification is needed.
Attached is a sketch of the concept.
Have you looked at this:?
I forked the plugin and added limited ability to effect the slope through a diagAdjust param in the defaults:
The only thing I can think of is having multiple link areas and stagger them at an angle (like a staircase). I'm not sure it's a better solution than an image map, though (at least from a code bloat standpoint).
Perhaps I'm oversimplifying, but wouldn't utilizing transparent PNGs be better than using image maps? Doesn't solve the text wrapping issue, but depending on how it's designed, maybe it's a non-issue.
