Great mod! But for me, if i select Yes for "Hide "HOME" tab?" it's still showing me the HOME button. Is there any other way to disable this?

Well i have loved this mod for a long time.
Had an issue for a long time also.
Could never get the sub menus to the color i wanted.
Finally worked it out.
It seems to call the color here.

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now i dont have navbar_selected_popup_body at all.
So changed it to ['white'] and the problem is finally fixed.

My question is...
Is this an error in the mod or is my forum missing the needed templates?
FTW Forum <- Home of the damned!

Is this mod obsolete now with the addition of the Navigation Manager in 4.2.0?

I used this on 4.1.7 and it worked great.

Question though, I'm having an issue with the Nav Manager in 4.2.0 PL3 and would like to use this again.

Is it compatible with 4.2.0 PL3 I don't want to blow anything up

I stopped using Nav manager and went back to using this instead with PL2. PL3 is pretty much the same so it should be fine.
