This is very much a work in progress as I've only spent a couple of days with a live ISPConfig. I'm just seeing if this direction would interest anyone else and prompt me to push it to my Github account. Main points are the header at the top is position:fixed so it's always visible and the #submenu template has been slightly tweaked to provide for a nested dropdown menu. I'm not exactly sure where to put the #submenu but I like the idea of not taking up horizontal space and eventually make it look and behave more like a real desktop menu. All the buttons have a depressed hover state and the icon in the search bar is a Font-Awesome character so I'll add more of them to all the buttons a bit like Github.
