How can I make Confluence's top bar wider (and accomplish a few other visual layout tweaks?)

I would like to know how this confluence site is accomplishing a few things:

- Wider top bar with an embedded logo

- breadcrumb trail with a separate color below that

- navigation panel on the right

- padding on both sides of the page

It looks like they're *not* using one of the Confluence design plugins like Zen or Adaptavist (correct me if I'm wrong). Assuming that, can anyone tell me the most forward-compatible way to do the above, using vanilla confluence? We run 3.5, but will soon be upgrading to 4.0. Even just pointing me to Space Admin vs. Confluence Admin, custom CSS or HTML would be much appreciated.

Have you tried contacting the site's adminitrators to see how they acheieved this?

can be done by editing the global stylesheet and the velocity-files responsible for generating the top navigation (e.g. decorators/includes/topnav.vm ). i would make a copy of the file(s), edit the file(s) and put them into edit-webapp folder. when building the war, the original files are replaced by your edited files.
