WordPress Tip: Limau-Orange Theme with Navigation Bar from Contempt

I had a small question about your blog's template. I really liked the template as soon as I saw it and went ahead and downloaded it. Could you let me know how you added the navigation tabs on the top? I am not much of a programmer but I can work with php and css to an extent. I'd be highly obliged if you could help me set up the same :)

And I hope you that you keep posting GREAT content - I love it!

All the best,
Sapphire

Dear Sapphire,

Thanks for the compliments on my theme hack. The original theme is the Limau-Orange theme by Blog oh Blog. I wanted a top navigation bar so I used one from the Contempt theme. It took a few hours of wrangling to make it fit. You can download my hybrid here: Limau-Orange Theme with Contempt's Toolbar. Make sure you change the logo.

One a side note, I've been fairly happy with this theme. Minimalistic themes don't become eyesores as fast as others.
