Help with styling autonav with css in 5.7.x

I've found a lot of tutorials on this.
Strangely the one that was most promising started to use a marketplace solution half way
concrete5 mastering autonav.
I would like to do this with out the marketplace plugin.
I've made roll over pull-down css menus before but here i'm getting stuck.
making a class for it bij copying the view php is al working.
but im stuck getting it to do what comes easy with just HTML and css which then of-coarse is static not responsive, hence the quest to do it with autonav.
Any suggestions are more than welcome because this is the most important reason to use concrete5.
The version is 5.7.x other wise i could possible buy one on te market place.

Hi NLS61,

hi thanks for replying.
Yes I have obviously I would like to be able to make it all a lot less rectangle and so fort.
In HTML with CSS I can doe that I don't seem to be able to have the autonav to behave that way.
The concrete5 video's are not 5.7 specific so I don't want to start en pick-up the there mentioned plug-in in the marketplace.
As I'm uncertain they will work with 5.7.x
I Might be in over my head as I'm basically an illustrator.

Thanks far any pointers or help.

You want a basic drop down menu?

jQuery plugins like this can be used to make a basic drop down menu responsive:

I will have time this week to look at this.

You can create a custom template for the autonav block and register the JavaScript as an asset. I suggest to read the following:

Register the JavaScript as an asset.

So i've done what is said in those links.
It still doesn't tell me how to get this slick nav to work in concrete5
I'm searching for a step by step instruction but no luck so far.
it seems to me that concrete5 is not made for the designer but is more for the core web builder nothing wrong with that off coarse but for me the most important thing is to be able to style the navigation the rest of the template building is not a problem.
I can trough css do some things to the auto nav but it is not enough.
I'm afraid I will have to switch to another cms as I'm running out of time.
I'll soldier on today but after that I will have to return to this challenge a later date.

Lol je bent een Nederlander.
Mischien kan je me naar een paar tutjes wijzen waarmee ik die boel aan de praat krijg.
Ik heb in het verleden een flash cms geschreven en dat speelde zich volledig binnen de player af.
Om duidelijke redenen gebruik ik dat nu niet meer mijn eigen ws draait er nog in maar dat moet ook veranderen.
Doet het dus niet op apple mobile divices en niet op android zonder flashfox.
Ik hoopte in Concrete een CMS te vinden dat voor een relatief gezien css en html leek begrijpbaar zou zijn.
dat lukt op zich goed alleen het stijlen van de autonav wil maar niet.
Ik zou het appreciëren als je me verder kan helpen.
Ik ben in principe eerst illustrator en dan pas web designer.
