Another nice one bro. As you know I can only see it using IE on your theme site but one thing that I would consider would be changing the look of the active button in the nave menu. It doesn't quite blend in with the rest of the menu. Other than that, excellent job.  ;)

Maybe use all three menu images like you do for the span of the menu?  Maybe something like these? But of course they will need to be coded in and renamed to be used as active.

My first idea didn't go as planned so I tried something different.

Add the image in attachment to the images/id folder and in index.css change this:
Code: [Select]
#nav li a.active {
background: url(../images/id/chosen.gif) repeat-x;
margin-left: -2px;
display: block;
color: orange;
font-weight: 900;
}
#nav li a:hover, #nav li:hover a, #nav li.sfhover a {
background: none;
color: #ddd;
text-decoration: none;
}
#nav li:hover li a, #nav li ul li a:hover {
color: #fff;
background: #E4620E;
}

To this:
Code: [Select]
#nav li a.active {
background: url(../images/id/nav_active.png) 0 50% no-repeat;
color: #000;
}
#nav li a.active span {
background: url(../images/id/nav_active.png) 100% 50% no-repeat;
}
#nav li a:hover, #nav li:hover a, #nav li.sfhover a {
background: none;
color: #ddd;
text-decoration: none;
}
#nav li:hover li a, #nav li ul li a:hover {
color: #ccc;
background: #E4620E;
}

 :)

Your site is running SMF 1.1.12. The theme is for SMF 2.0 rc4.  ;)

Just wondering how this worked out for you Crip. I also noticed a small glitch on my test site. There doesn't seem to be a Logout option with this theme.  ;D

You would think that if the width was too narrow then it would push extra menu items to a second line? I have a few test buttons that were in the way. Anyway, that seemed to have worked.  ;)

I have noticed some problems — see screenshot.

Fix 1: in index.template.php find
Code: [Select]
echo ' »';
and replace with
Code: [Select]
echo ' »';

Fix 2: in index.css add
Code: [Select]
#nav li ul {width: 250px;}
#nav li li {width: 250px;}
