Meanwhile, here are some tips:

  • Particularly useful for side menus and blocks: you may add the css class 'hide-overflow' to any block through the UI (see below). this will truncate the contents rather than having them bleed into the body of the next layout column to the right.
  • The easiest way to get rid of all the block borders is to set the block border color the same as the page background color.
  • The default block border width is one pixel. To change that, you may add the following css classes to any block through the admin UI (Configure Block | Style Settings | Style:Default -> Additional CSS Classes):
    • 'border-0' (no border)
    • 'border-2' (2px)
    • 'border-3' (3px...)
    • 'border-5'
    • 'border-7'
    • 'border-10' (10px)
    • combine any of the above with 'hide-overflow' (separated by a space)
  • The logo image is not scaled in css, thus it must be pre-scaled prior to uploading. I have found an image height of 75 to 125 pixels to work well. Here's my favorite resizing tool:


  • For vertical menus, be sure to set the Menu Style to 'Dropdown Menu' in order to make them look good. More work on this is pending.
  • More testing is required to make sure that menus work in every layout implementation, etc.


  • Add a box and button corner radius selection, for more styling options.
  • Implement color gradients for buttons and block backgrounds.
  • Continue the never-ending process of refining and cleaning up the css.
  • etc.
