How do you change the top bar?

I have the simple blue and white theme installed in elgg and my social network is centered around vanilla forums with a matching blue theme. Now all I have left to change is that dark grey top bar in elgg (just like on this site.) I actually want to get rid of dashboard, make the small icon say Profile, and then move around some of the other links. I want to put friends and forums directly on the bar and then tuck settings and administration under the tools pull down. I also want to rename vanilla forum to just forum.

Where do I need to go to start editing that bar?

  • If you just want to change how the topbar looks, then you should edit the CSS file.  If you want to alter menus in the topbar, you have to edit some files in navigation folder.
