    It's based on Simple_Sky..
    I have a navigation menu and Denyerec's Amazon Media Manager on the left, and the standard WP menu on the right.
    Take a look
    if anyone is interested I will post or send you the code

    Can you get rid of the extra padding/margin on the right which cuts into the menu?

    I've actually worked something up similarly using only some static additions to index.php and some additions to my CSS. Take a look if you don't mind.

    Beel: I have been trying to, but when I can't figure out what to set the width at, so the right menu lands at the right edge of the screen.
    I end up pushing the menu down below the body. If you have any suggestions I'd appreciate it. I'm fairly new to css and xhtml.
    Right now for width I have:
    Left menu: 10%
    Rap: 80%
    content: 65%
    Right Menu: 20%
    NuclearMoose: I'll email it in a moment
    Thanks for the feedback and compliments!

    Looks to me on first glance that the rap 80% is the problem.

    What do you think it should be? When I make it smaller it really throws everything off

    I couldn't save your page to take a look at it, but what do you have outside the rap? Did you try not setting the width or at 100%?

    In your reverse/css etc you have set both a margin 10px; and a width of 75% for the rap. Now my math isn't good but......

    beel: If I go much higher on #rap, I end up with horizontal scroll bars(definately don't want that). I think the problem is with the cloud image, because the actual menu text isn't being cut off just the boder on the right side of the picture right?
    anon: anything larger for rap results in the menu being misplaced to the bottom of the screen or in horizontal scroll bars, neither of which I want.
    If someone can play around with it and find a fix I would be happy to use it, perhaps Nuclear Moose or Pankaj will have some luck

    Yes but 75% and 10px; gives two conflicting style rules to the same div. This can lead to wholly unpredictable results.

    solarpnk, how do you define "latest"? How many of the most recent do you want displayed? You can set that number at the options page in the admin interface.

    I think I am bordering on CMS at this point!

    Could ZaMoose or firstbigweekend post the css for their sites somewhere? I have been struggling with a fluid 3 col and can't get there.
