  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

We're happy with the header and footer links right now, so an all-encompassing ticket isn't necessary. If individual changes need to be made in the future, we will address those problems specifically in future tickets.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
