maybe try rent a coder.
I use the default vb
navigation that how is how vbulletin is setup. The point I am making here is really talking custom coding. Your welcome to your opinions of the vb
nav system I am sure people have lots of opinions but that does not change the reality of the company viewpoint.
Companies do not assist with code modifications. I do not have any information to assist you in that regard. I stay out of code mod stuff. I do not follow vbulletin.org or know any hackers.
I am kept busy enough actually dealing with the default applications.
