    The navigation is IMHO not solved very great.
    It's like in vB4

    If you are in an other Tab then Forums, you can't search for new Threads.
    That should be "Javascript Driven" so if you change the Tab(maybe on mouseover) , only the part under the tabs should change.

    For example:
    If you are here, you're not able to click on "what's new".
    YOu have to first click on "Forums", then the complete page reloads and then you can click on "what's new"

    I'd like to look at possibly switching the below-the-tab links when you hover over a different tab from the one you are currently viewing. That should solve the problem, if I can pull it off...

    I suppose a tabular based system could work well like the one over at thesimsresource.com:)

    Yeah. That's a bad experience.

    Other Question:
    How is the navigation build?
    Is it "only" a template?

    If yes =>

    It would be great to have a nice "Interface" for managing it (Like Wordpress 3)
    Also it would be great, if there is a pluginsystem in xenforo, to make a nice, easy way, to add add-on navlinks into the navbar;)

    A UI for editing the navigation is on the todo list.

    When Kier mentioned this to me, I noted that I hate nav systems with 2 rows, where the second row changes on hover (over the first). Primarily because it's very easy to move the mouse diagonally and trigger a different tab.

    We agree that it's an issue, we're just trying to figure out the best approach to it.

    I've been working on an improved system, and we've just rolled it out here. Hope you like it.

    Bear in mind you'll need to do a full javascript refresh.

    How does one do this? The only 'refresh' I know as an enduser in Firefox is [CTRL]-[R] or [F5]. Please someone enlighten me. :oops:

    CTRL+F5 will refresh it for you.

    Grover, are you on Windows or Mac, and what browser do you use?
