The new version is 10 times better and cleaner than the first one. You probably just need to readjust or move some things back in place or something. If I had both, I definitely wouldn’t use the older version.
For the css, I’m not sure the best way to do it, you’d have to ask Wes something like that since it’s his themes…..unless someone else here has a suggestion.
