Thanks that got me on the right track. In 5.13 it appears it's actually in ppopen.tmpl in the templates directory. Two instances, one for other sections and the 2nd for the sidepal tables.
On the note of a forum for "hacks", I'm not saying that they would have to be full blown hacks or anything, but an organized forum where previous questions have been answered by yourself so we had 1 forum to look through to see if a question had already been asked and answered would be nice. Right now, reading the descriptions under the forum headers it's not really known where these "small hacks" can even be asked so they seem to end up in all sorts of places. Just an idea. Maybe just changing a specific forum description to note that is the place to ask for small code modifications would be all that's needed?
Thanks again for getting me on the right track.
