The change is great, and I can add a grad back to each active link from clear to translucent; perfect.
It doesn't seem to make any difference if I add the code to the
</body>, nor if I add a 'navbar' class to the custom classes. If I add class, I can edit the typo, but it changes all the links, and not the specific active link to an individual effect (i.e. current active link in italic). They all change if I do, so I deleted the class. The grad back still works well, but the .png logo has a grad back too.
Should I work out a custom class, and apply to each link individually? This would mean breaking away from the menu manager, but I can't see that being a big issue.
I only read this thread out of interest, and now I'm tweaking my site again. Oh, the beauty of the Blocs forum.
