One of the most underestimated - although one of the most powerful features - is the apps-file. With this file it is possible to set application-specific parameters for dimension, decoration, default workspace to open on, stickyness and much more. It will let you manipulate almost every setting for any window or application. The best way to learn about it is to visit the wiki-site for the apps-file:
http://fluxbox-wiki.org/index.php/Howto … _apps_file
You also can right click the window title and choose an option from remember.

Howto cusomize the fluxbox toolbar: http://fluxbox-wiki.org/index.php/Toolbar_customization

What is this Slit? The Slit is often confused with the toolbar. The slit is a dock for any application that can be 'dockable'. A docked application is anchored and appears on every workspace. It cannot be moved freely and is not influenced by any manipulation to windows. Typical programs that go into the slit are dockapps ( http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/dis … /DockApps/ ) or gkrellm ( http://members.dslextreme.com/users/bil … ellm.html). Such applications often have a -w option to run in the slit, but some start automatically in withdrawn mode. Keep in mind: The slit is invisible if nothing is in it! In order to see it, run your dockapp and the slit will show up.

Re: Fluxbox resources - links

I hope you don't mind, but I copied/pasted this entire post to the Fluxbox Forums. 

This is an excellent Fluxbox Resource in itself.

Wmdrawer installable from AUR

For example configuration

Wbar installable from AUR

community/wbar 2.2.2-1 [0.23 MB]
    A quick launch bar developed with speed in mind
aur/wbarconf 0.7.2.1-1
    Configuration GUI for wbar written in Python and GTK
aur/wbar_util 1.0-1
    A large Configuration GUI for wbar written in Python and GTK

Screen Shots of Fluxbox using Wbar in slit through out this page.
http://antix.freeforums.org/antix-11-t2903-15.html
Example Configuration at bottom of page here:
http://antix.freeforums.org/antix-11-t2903.html
Below was copied from above link

Here are the steps that I used to run lxpanel and wbar

1) open ~/.fluxbox/init in leafpad or another editor and found the line
Code:
session.screen0.toolbar.tools:   workspacename, prevworkspace, nextworkspace, iconbar, systemtray, prevwindow, nextwindow, clock

remove iconbar and system tray from the line so it looks similar to this
Code:
session.screen0.toolbar.tools:   workspacename, prevworkspace, nextworkspace, prevwindow, nextwindow, clock

2) edited ~/.fluxbox/startup and added the lines ( can be done using add-start in M11 )
Code:
sleep 2 && lxpanel &
sleep 6 && wbar &

the sleeps are added to allow my slow machine time to set wallpaper, fluxbox menu / taskbar, etc... Without the sleeps wbar will need to be refreshed to match background and lxpanel may not have a working system tray. If you find you need to refresh wbar, or there is no system tray in lxpanel, then increase the sleep times.

As for the slit, I have not seen a need to delete it, probably because I have not yet figured out how it works :-)

EDIT
As a side note I have found that applications that were maximized before having lxpanel would maximize under lxpanel. To solve the issue I had set lxpanel to autohide, setting it to a lower layer via ~/.fluxbox/apps also helps resolve the issue but will not resolve it completely .
Here is the code from ~/.fluxbox/apps
Code:
[app] (name=lxpanel)
  [Tab]      {no}
  [Deco]   {NONE}
  [Hidden]   {yes}
  [Layer]   {2}
[end]
