What do you think of the design, I went for simplicity and familiarity:

Looks pretty good so far, you should work on your logo a little more. I think that it would look a little better with a lighter blue and less of the shadows.

Also if the user has javascript disabled you should have a <noscript> notification showing them how to turn it on.

Thanks, I'm not much of a javascript programmer so I am unaware of some of the code, such as the <noscript> tag lol.  I do agree that the logo needs work, however graphic design is not my forte, programming is =P.

Out of curiosity, does your CMS use Smarty or some similar template system? And also, just a tip-you should really have it create valid code by default. That's one of the things that I look for in a good CMS.

It looks really clean.  When I clicked a link I expected the content area to reload without the entire page reloading.  You can do this with AJAX.  Slap up some AJAX and then it will be a clean, smooth, transtiition when people click links ;)  If you need help, check out ajaxfreaks.com

Looks nice.

A few things.

Have some Navigation groups CLOSED by Default.
Also for the Head/Title of the Navigation - the text should be a <a href> and not just the icon.

Also when opening and closing the navigation, the icons do not always appear.

Also - on the right - I would like to see something to take away teh white. It just ends abruptly.

I agree on the white, right now I'm working on the code.  My template output will be meet w3c standards as well as support for css only layouts which a lot of cms's have trouble with, like Mambo.
