    Thanks for the response Stephen.
    I wanted to clarify something:
    I did not intend to demean any of the work that you folks have put into V5, I was pointing out the lack of customization options that I see upon first use (on a test site).

    Specific feedback on the "customization confusion" issue that others have mentioned:
    In my view, the confusion primarily comes from the lack of a uniform naming convention and the general disorganization of the "Site Style" section of V4.

    Example: Forum Only: Table Styling > Table Top Right Header option states:
    "This is the top right Table Header for the Forum Index. It sits behind the words 'Last Post' on the Forum Index page."
    The end user questions are: "What the heck does that mean?" ; "Why are there text format options, when none of the text is changed based on these settings?" ; and "Why can't I just change the date format?"
    This option only seems to change the background behind the text, when what I am really looking for is descriptive customization options like:

    Forum Column 6 (Last post) > Date format > (pulldown for format options)
    And
    Forum Column 6 (Last post) > Column width > (simply grab the side of the column in the preview window and drag into position)

    Either of these two options would allow me to get rid of, or adjust for, the current misalignment of the Last Post column, when comparing Forums Vs. Subforums.
    In V4, this misalignment currently affects the row height, depending on the date format applied.

    This all comes off as very specific, but the point is:
    The confusion comes from the lack of a user friendly naming convention with descriptive customization options based on common terminology, such as columns, rows, etc.

    I hope this helps you folks to nail it down.

    Why would you tie our hands with things like nasty "Color themes" and a lack of transparency?

    Admin dashboard > Site Style ... This Admin category no longer exists to customize even simple things like text and link colors?
    I expected *more* customization from V5, not less.
    Almost everything in the dashboard is the same as V4, except you took a massive amount of site customization options *away*? ... That doesn't make any sense at all.

    We will be staying with V4 until this is fixed.

    If you force us to "downgrade" to V5, and it doesn't allow me to create the site that me and my guildies want, I will cancel and go elsewhere.

    We are paid in full until October 2016.
    I will be really bent out of shape if you don't give me the service that we already paid for.

    This may help define this feature.

    Here is a custom styled, working spoiler button that I have added to my V4 site.
    Add this code to the Custom CSS of your V4 site

    ---Custom CSS Code starts here---

    .myButton {
    -moz-box-shadow:inset 0px 1px 0px 0px #ccd6f0;
    -webkit-box-shadow:inset 0px 1px 0px 0px #ccd6f0;
    box-shadow:inset 0px 1px 0px 0px #ccd6f0;
    background:-webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0.05, #9ba0a8), color-stop(1, #697380));
    background:-moz-linear-gradient(top, #9ba0a8 5%, #697380 100%);
    background:-webkit-linear-gradient(top, #9ba0a8 5%, #697380 100%);
    background:-o-linear-gradient(top, #9ba0a8 5%, #697380 100%);
    background:-ms-linear-gradient(top, #9ba0a8 5%, #697380 100%);
    background:linear-gradient(to bottom, #9ba0a8 5%, #697380 100%);
    filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#9ba0a8', endColorstr='#697380',GradientType=0);
    background-color:#9ba0a8;
    -moz-border-radius:3px;
    -webkit-border-radius:3px;
    border-radius:3px;
    border:1px solid #5c5e61;
    display:inline-block;
    cursor:pointer;
    color:#ffffff;
    font-family:arial;
    font-size:13px;
    padding:4px 15px;
    text-decoration:none;
    text-shadow:0px 1px 0px #2d323d;
    }
    .myButton:hover {
    background:-webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0.05, #697380), color-stop(1, #9ba0a8));
    background:-moz-linear-gradient(top, #697380 5%, #9ba0a8 100%);
    background:-webkit-linear-gradient(top, #697380 5%, #9ba0a8 100%);
    background:-o-linear-gradient(top, #697380 5%, #9ba0a8 100%);
    background:-ms-linear-gradient(top, #697380 5%, #9ba0a8 100%);
    background:linear-gradient(to bottom, #697380 5%, #9ba0a8 100%);
    filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#697380', endColorstr='#9ba0a8',GradientType=0);
    background-color:#697380;
    }
    .myButton:active {
    position:relative;
    top:1px;
    }

    ---Custom CSS Code ends here---

    Use: After adding the code above to your custom CSS, add, and define the button in an HTML widget, with the HTML Source Editor provided by gamerlaunch / guildlaunch.

    To do this, add the following code in the location you wish to display the button. Change the 'your div id here' entries to the name of the div id for the spoiler you wish to open, and change the entry for Your Button Title Here to the text you wish to display on the button.

    ---HTML Spoiler Button Code starts here---
    <div style="text-align: left;"><a class="myButton" title="Click to show/hide content" onclick="if(document.getElementById('your div id here') .style.display=='none') {document.getElementById('your div id here') .style.display=''}else{document.getElementById('your div id here') .style.display='none'}" type="button"><span style="color: #ffffff;">Your Button Title Here</span></a></div>

    ---HTML Spoiler Button Code ends here---

    Add a defined <div> tag, with a matching id, under the button code (this is the text that will be hidden by the spoiler). The entry for "your div id here" must match the entries entered in the button code above. Also note the difference in the two types of quote marks between the two bits of code. These are important. Single quotes above, double quotes below.

    ---Code starts here---
    <div id="your div id here" style="display: none; text-align: left;">
    <p>This is hidden spoiler text.</p>
    </div>

    ---Code ends here---

    I hope this code actually shows properly here, and I hope this helps.

    If you'd like to see how they can be used on a V4 site, here is a link to the Guild Rules custom page on my V4 site.

    http://unlimited.gamerlaunch.com/custom.php?page_id=112207&gid=418684

    Note: On my V5 testing site, I could no longer get these buttons to work. V5 does not have the same kind of Custom Page support, and the Custom CSS feature *may* be disabled, since I only maintain a subscription for our live site, and not the test site. I only use it to test changes before I deploy them to our live site.

    Right now you can’t roll your own menu, that will come later. Right now the dropdowns represent existing navigation structure and will be created for custom sections that have sub page.

    Roll your own menus are coming later.
