    Hi!

    My question is in two parts:

    1. I'm looking for a different way to display feature posts, as I do not have many of them. Is there an easy way I could replace the entire 'feature' section (that would show on the home page only) with a slider? Or, perhaps style the section so it displays 3-4 thumbnails horizontally that link to each feature post?

    2. I will admit, I am terrible when it comes to CSS sometimes, and this is one of those times. I have the Acamas theme installed, and would love to style the menu so it looks similar to the one used in the current version of http://premiumpixels.com -- see how there is the little triangle image & black border underneath the current page?

    I'd love some help... and I apologize for asking what may possibly be such a simple question. I have been sitting here trying various methods, and I just can't figure it out. Thanks.

  2. 1. of course it is possible, but 1. i don't have acamas and 2. your question is vague and doesn't show any code for me to critique.

    2. premiumpixels is gorgeous. please use something like chrome's developer tools or http://getfirebug.com to look at how he is achieving that. first you are going to need to re-create the markup... which could be difficult.

    <li><a><span>Home</span></a></li>

    notice that he has an extra span. this is important b/c the triangle is on the a element and the underline is on the span. you could either do a hard-coded menu OR you'd need to create a custom walker. see my post on menus:
