Download added, still suggest to not use it on a Live Board and fully test it first.

If you have any tips or suggestions, please let me know!

Glad you're liking it.

Will try to make it hide and show.
Will also try to add a left/right option.

I like the idea.

Personally I would more like something like a Tab-based ajex-menu in the header instead of the in the left or right.

Eg. like you have here with About Downloads Customise Support here on phpbb....

That's just a menu, which you can already do in your overall_header.. Just picks all forums from your board and lists them.

I could look into adding a feature that all catogories are listed in the header aswell..

Well the "fancy" thing should be you did need to hard code every menu-option but the option was taken from the database. So if you add or delete a categorie it was instantly added to the menu...

That is now aswell, every newly created category or forum is added to the navbar automatically.

Does this follow the phpBB Permissions system, so users can't see boards that they are not authed to see?

Also, I think it's a bit redundant on the board index, because that just adds a second listing of all of the forums next to the actual list. ;)
Don't forget to smile today. :)

I know but that was the way it was requested and I'll thoroughly test the permissions system but I believe it already does that.

Still trying to make it slidable, being a bit of a pain in the ass. If someone could help me with that, would be awesome.

As imkingdavid said, this seems to be a bit redundant. Nevertheless, it's a nice mod.

Any plans on AJAXifying the menu?
