    Looks great!

    How about a blue RSS button?

    Good idea. Updated.

    If you're sick of the April Fools theme and/or want to test this new bar, I've got this implemented in the "Upcoming CH Theme", which you can change though your profile look and layout preferences. It does seem to completely change the overall look of the forum. It's very likely that I should have all this completed by end of the day and that it'll be implemented tonight when I change the April fools theme back.

    Now that looks much nicer than that stupid core theme...Except one thing, not an issue per-say, just different... This is what I see at the top:
    0Computer Hope - Computer Help Forums  >>  1Other   >>  2Other  >>  3Re: Forum header change )

    Can you see something different?

    EDIT: Strange...now it looks like this:

    Home  >>  Other  >>  Other  >>  Re: Forum header change )

    But what is the ending ) doing...is it just this thread...?

    Still a work in progress. I'm modifying that section and I wasn't sure how the programmer wrote it so had to see what was the variable, which is why it was showing 0,1,2,3

    Should now show: Home  / Other  / Other / Forum header change

    I wanted to change this to say "home" instead of "Computer Hope - computer help forum", was taking up too much space. ;)

    It does show Home  / Other  / Other / Forum header change, and you're right...it does take up a lot less work.

    This change should now be apparent on the default theme. Let me know if anything is broken or if there is something you'd like changed.

    New headers looks good, but you know I kind of miss the April 1st colors.

    Footers are a nice addition also.

    looks good!

    Just one thing... It would probably be better if the forum home button said "Forum Home" OR the main one said something such as "Back to Website" as two home buttons could confuse people.

    Yeah Nathan, the two home buttons just happen to be on top of each other.

    It's a cleaner look...but the background fade makes it appear busier than it actually is...
    How bout if it faded towards the bottom of the page instead ? ?

    Looks nice, though I find it a touch less user friendly or intuitive than it might be. While YOU know what is in the dropdown tabs, a casual user would not guess, for example, that "HOME" drops down to direct forum links or that the link to find moderators would be under "HELP". One minor adjustment I personally would like is having a direct link to Recent Forum Posts separate from the dropdown box. As a "high count" contributor it's the "button" I click on most frequently. Not a big deal, but one less step (as it was previously) would be appreciated.
