A new Nav Bar Builder is available with tonight's code push.  From the Control Panel, select Site Style.  The link to it has a bold "New!" to the left, so you can't miss it.  The tool makes creating one of those more modern-looking navigation tab strips for your guild pages all point-and-clicky.

Also, the Stories content type now has two views.  The first is the default, which displays a listing of stories authored by members of your guild.  The second, selectable by a link at the top, shows some of the most recent stories that have been submitted to GamerFables.com.

The rest of the changes that are going out involve a bunch of little fixes and tweaks for support tickets, as well as a sentient being bent on world domination.  Wouldn't worry about him, though -- he barely compiled.

Just tried out the new Navbar, looking very sleek I have to say!
Some thoughts:
  • The little icon to the left of the buttons is a little horde symbol. Is there any way to change that to Alliance?
  • When using this, the personal menu ends up on top of the page (the one with Character settings and such), is there any way to still have that to the side? (Context Box style)
Cheers,
Gavendo

I tried the new nav bar feature and although it looks cool, it skews all my buttons to the left and leaves a big space on the right hand side.  Any idea how I can fix this?

Hi Miori!

Just add this CSS to your Custom CSS (or into the header or footer HTML with <style> tags around it)
.straightBarWrapperInnerTable {margin: 0 auto;}

Thanks for the suggestion, but all that does is center all the buttons so that it leaves big spaces on either side of the first and last button.

Are there some example websites where I can see this bar in action?

Ok Miori!

Try this then:
<style type="text/css">
.straightBarWrapper { background: url(); }
.straightBarWrapperInnerTable { margin: 0 auto; }
.straightBarNormalTab, .straightBarActiveTab, .straightBarMouseOverTab { width: 100px; }
</style>

  • The line in blue removes the background image from the wrapper (not sure if you wanted this or not)
  • The line in green centers all the buttons
  • The line in orange makes the buttons wider (you can adjust the width to whatever you desire)
