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?

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

We have a pretty good* newsletter.
