Bug Description

Since there is a trend of coloring menu bars in a different color than
the rest of a widget in theme styling, I think it would be good to turn
Network item (which is of menu class) into a button with a drop-down
menu.

WICD does not look good with themes like Ambiance & Radiance Flat Colors

Thanks for the hint!

How do you mean, a button with a drop-down menu? Isn't that almost what it is now?
Would you place it in the same location?

If you can send a screenshot/mock-up or even better, a code patch, that would clarify and speed up progress.

See attached screenshots of Parole 0.5.4 and Viewnior 1.4.

I see the problem (image of post #4) and how it could be done better (post #2 and post #3). Thanks for your help!
