The menus

From a post in the plugins forum:

You can't run Awesome bar AND the built in Nav and Settings menus. Just to much overhead. So, you are best to

  1. Go to home page and for NAV and SETTINGS blocks show on front page only
  2. Then "hide on front page"
  3. In DECAF settings set both to 'Show on front page=NO".

Other themes with the Awesome bar

Theme Settings

The only setting to be aware of here is the xxx (switch all settings menus OFF as if you don't it will run like a dog)

This option uses a small edit button rather than a number of edit option icons.
