Only one recommendation would be, in my case, I only needed the top panel, but as the options don't allow to set a "None" Position for bottom panel, I had to hide the bottom panel from css code, not a big deal, but it would be nice to add the a simple "Position = None" in the plugin settings.
But Hey !! ... wonderful extension... I like it :)
The setting is there in the position selection drop down. It's the first option.
Either way - I'm glad you found a solution, and I'm glad you used the CSS configuration option as well. So many users are turned off because of my bland choice of style without realizing that I created it with the intention that it would be styled to match their site.
Thanks for the great review!
