Multiflex-4 Overview

Flexible and robust template

Now substantially improved and simplified

Multiflex-4 is the fourth generation Multiflex template, with the header code being the major change since Multiflex-3. The new header is more in line with current design trends. The core code is almost identical to Multiflex-3.10, with the major difference being in the CSS code for the header. Outsie the header, both the CSS and HTML codes have remained virtally unchanged. Multiflex-4 does not offer multiple headers, but only one standard header. Check the navigation menu to discover all about the new Multiflex-4!
