Link Nudging

$("a").hover(function() {
       $(this).stop().animate({paddingLeft : "10px"},200);
},function() {
       $(this).stop().animate({paddingLeft : "0px"},200);

Make sure to change the selector to only target the links you want to have nudging, e.g. "#sidebar ul li a"

    Is it possible to do this AND get a backgroundcolor that fades back to transparent?

  • Use Markdown, and it will escape the code for you, like `<div class="cool">`.
  • Use triple-backticks for blocks of code.
      <h1>multi-line block of code</h1>
      <span>be cool yo.</span>
  • Otherwise, escape your code, like <code>&lt;div class="cool"&gt;</code>. Markdown is just easier though.
