I didn't bother checking all the other pages for content+module errors, but at least the template is all good

One problem remains: When the browser is shrunk to a certain size, the right sidebar gets jammed down under the left sidebar. I use float in CSS to position the sidebars & body together. I use margin for spacing- they're all positioned with percentages. What's making it break off? Or Where's it breaking now?
I'm going to work on merging in some free templates too, so there will be more to choose from. (<- Thanks to a resource from fangore.) I'm also going to write some documentation and tutorials on managing themes in WysGui. That way there's an easy option for anyone who wants to go custom. It's going to be timely because there's other sites I'm managing too, and I'll be working the weekends of October through Halloween. Plus the "home team" and I are developing some ideas on a premium, user-centric run-off of WysGui. Hopefully all these projects should be ready to come together before the holidays.
Still welcoming criticism,
Thanks allot for everything so far!

On a sidenote : The admin panel is quite hard to use.
I think this is purposed for the web designers/ developpers.
In the admin panel, i'd advise to use more descriptive images or placing a line of descriptive text as alt of the images.

Okay, thanks for that. I got used to the admin panel so I didn't realize it too much.

I think all of the nav icons should be changed.
- Content (add/edit) should be changed [bigger icons, plus sign & tool overlays]
- Manage Users should be changed [tools overlay instead of plus sign]
- Module icons might change a little. [Plus sign overlay for add, and tools overlay for edit/delete]
Also, I'm working on a version that hides all of the advanced stuff off the admin panel. That way people who only use the basics don't have to see all the useless icons like modules, manual editor, ranks, and groups which are needed, but don't apply to them. Everything can always be accessed via the "Site Tree" anyway.

i was just looking further and i found a bit of a usability issue. The documentation link takes you to the wiki. Once there, there is no way back which means as a user you get "stuck". I would move it to the bottom of the list, mark it "wiki" or "documentation/wiki" and have it open in a new browser window or provide a link back to the site.
