This discussion is related to the Button Bar addon.

I was wondering how to make button bar look like Penny Arcade's version:
Can anyone help me? I want to figure out how to put the buttons in a bar and how to move the preview and save draft buttons to bottom, both which I can't figure out.

The buttons on the bottom in "normal" mode:

    Got the second part of your question covered: You need to create two new folders in your /themes/default folder. The first one is called "views" and inside of that you create one called "post". You should now have a path that looks like this: /themes/default/views/post/ Inside of the "post" folder you create a new file called "comment.php". Now take the contents of the following gist: https://gist.github.com/2419542 and put them inside your comment.php file and you're done.

    As for the first part, simply create a file called custom.css and put it in the folder /themes/default/design. Then put the contents of this gist https://gist.github.com/2419725 inside your custom.css file and you've got yourself a button bar like the one on Penny Arcade :)
