I desperatly need to change the font color of the links in the Navbar.
I tried the tricks you gave me for the 3.5.4 version, in Phrases.
My changes won't stick.

I like the idea of this hack, but it doesn't work with the template I've got installed. The navbar has been moved into the header template, which is fair enough, I was able to find the required code and change it, but upon doing it, the table got all screwed up (and the text was a diffrent colour).

Hi, i'm trying to install this on vB 3.6.1 and when i try to import it as a product it says that it is a plugin and that i should use the plugin manager to upload. So i went to Upload/download plugin, uploaded it, and nothing happened.

Thank you! It is a long-awaiting hack for me!
One question - I have a big space between the "New Posts In" item and the next item. How could I reduce this space? Thank you.

I'd like to know how to prevent the font from being another color in the NavBar too. I need it to change it to how the rest of my links in the NavBar look. Thank you!

here's the product (v1.8) without the text formatting. just Import and Allow Overwrite.

If I click in the vBulletin-Settings > Cyb product > on the three phrase links there comes an error: "No phrases found"

If I'm searching via "Browse Phrases" there they are.

I don't edit anything before this.
