Looks good, but...

1. I always preferred more horizontal space for articles - the two right columns (Main Menu & Poll) together look too busy.

2. Appears the breadcrumbs are broken here - http://muffindcc.com/demo/whyld/index.p ... &Itemid=37 & here - http://muffindcc.com/demo/whyld/index.p ... &Itemid=41.

Maybe just my browser but I have noticed this using the default Joomla 1.5 template on my testing server also.

3. I like the PDF, EMAIL, & PRINT icons.

4. Prefer the headers without the dark background, perhaps a simple line underneath.

1# Each column is fully collapsible so if you wish for horizontal space, you can have it. Is that you were referring to?

2# From a post I read from Jinx, this is an issue with RC2 but may I ask which Browser?

3# Cheers :)

4# Are you referring to the Content Headings, if so, I can probably create a Template Parameter for that

That you for your comments :)

Cheers :) Over the next week, I will probably make some minor changes but most efforts will be on some more documentation.

Could you clarify the Firefox issue with the searchbox? It looked fine to me. However, do take into account that the bottom row (User4-6) have module styling which is taken into effect on the searchbox and due to its size, it looks a bit funny.

Thanks Ricky :) Actually, I did start out with 1.0x then moved to 1.5 about 2-3 weeks ago. The 1.0 version ca be seen at http://muffindcc.com/demo/test1 - Obviously, it has not been updated in 2-3 weeks but if anyone wanted a complete 1.0x version, I can do that. However, keep it mind, it will not have all the features that 1.5 offers.

Hi

I could use something like this. Does it support "suckerfish" dropdowns from the CSS?

I've manage to get this working in my existing template, but I'd prefer not to doo the additional work again as this is not really my area of expertise.

Appreciate the work you have put into this one.

Thanks

If you check my orignal post, it has links to demo material that I have already written. It's contain in the menu item Documentation - I just renamed it for clarity

Obviously, it will not be of the same calibre as I have to manoeuver around the sample content. I have not changed any settings for the sample content on the demo, just add stuff within its settings, this being 2 extra menu links and sub pages. Therefore, you get to see the template demo in the same light that you would on first install.

The short answer is no.

There are no additional menu structures. The menu bar itself is just the Top Menu module which has been restyled. I have yet to research into advanced menu structures with 1.5 but should be shortly.

Cheers Jean-Marie. I used the Nighty Build poll module instead and then made my minuscule changes to it. I updated my template package. Would you be so kind and check?

I think this template is very good as it has a lot of useful positions to use... it's hard to choose the winner  :'(

Yeah, and I'm going to continue to make them! I'm totally into this now :P BTW, I forgot to mention I really do like your template! You've done an awesome job :) I just think the top right links (I'm guessing it's the latest news module) needs to have more ... maybe a heading or something? Just looks a little out of place.

Other than that you've done a great job!

in short, I've stopped testing your template, IMO yours is ok! No important bug displayed when surfing the site
