  • Thanks underDog, thanks for the link.

    I think I just needed some food and a break because about five minutes after dinner, with only skimming the link I had it working.
    Here how I did it, in case anyone else get stuck

    In the Theme, default.master.php, I added the following code under the

    Then it was just the case of making it look pretty, added some basic CSS I had lying around.

    /*top style menu items */

    margin: 10px;
    background: #f7f7f7;

    color: ce499c;
