[theforum] movement for redesign

I know that I originally suggested tabs, but now I've seen 2 template
designs, the colour coding is really clear to me.

I think changing the whole colour scheme is too much and am persuaded we
don't need tabs.

I *do* like the wee drop line, though.

The login and search must be separated a little more than they are in your
proposal, yet remain as part of the top header because they are
issues. From that bar, you are logging into the full evolt.org network, or
searching the same.

I've tried having the boxes as tabs, but that looks shit. And I've tried
using a background colour that changes per section, and that *can* look OK.

I will try something else shortly. Still working on the article template.
