I'm looking at http://tripawds.com/, the owner is a member here which is how I found the site. I'm wondering about the global header and footer used on all pages there, the bit that says
follow tripawds on twitter FOLLOW TRIPAWDS tripawds facebook fan page ARE YOU A FAN? » RANDOM TRIPAWDS BLOG » DISCUSSION FORUMS » LIVE CHAT » DIRECTORY » JERRY'S BLOG »
Is that done using the Global Footer plugin and then with some css trickery putting it at the top of the page as well?
Sorry, don't know if it's the done thing to ask about member sites but well it's not negative or anything
