Up to what version of Tmux is this for?

Hey Joel, this is a pretty old tmux config. It should still work in the most current version of tmux, but you might want to just take the parts you are interested in. I have simplified my config since this was created.

Thanks for the reply Mark. Yes I did take the things I liked but some of it just didn't work with newer Tmux. Thanks again
