awhile back i created a variable width mini ning bar that adjusted its width  to the content within (smaller when logged out wider when  logged in) taking that a step further i attached it to the window top  so its always within view, and styled it so it looks awesome (i only wish border radius alowed a negative value for a more graceful flaired curve look)

live version dreadlocks site

how it looks when signed out

and wider when signed in

now for some code add to your custom css

#xn_bar {
  background-color: #666666 !important;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
  border-radius: 0 0 23px 23px;
  border-top: 0 solid #CCCCCC;
  bottom: 0;
  box-shadow: 2px 2px 12px #CCCCCC inset;
  display: table;
  height: 22px;
  left: 30%;
  margin-left: auto;
  margin-right: auto;
  min-width: 0;
  opacity: 0.56;
  padding-top: 0;
  position: fixed;
  right: 30%;
  top: 0;
  width: auto;
  z-index: 23;}

#xn_bar:hover{opacity:.87}

hopefully most of you know  you can chanfe the colors by changing the hexidecimal values after # (or replace with a color name #ffffff #000000 can be replaced with black or whitre if you dont include the #)

if you have customized the ning bar with added content you may need to allow lil extra space so change the left right values to something like 20%

note the opacity and inset box shadow causes a frosted glass like effect with it being lil more opaque when hovered over

yiu can also adjust the opacity value  to get just the right look you want
