  1. I would like to add a few divs and content on the homepage between the nav and the branding or really just anywhere in the header, I have looked for the function that adds the nav to add it there but im having issues finding where to do it.

    can I just separate the header from the nav so that those things are separate then I can put what I want in between them.

    Also Im not using a Child theme I'm just changing the main thematic theme

  2. The following functions define the header:

    thematic_brandingopen()
    thematic_blogtitle()
    thematic_blogdescription()
    thematic_brandingclose()
    thematic_access()

    All are located in thematic/library/extensions/hooks-filters.php

    If you change something in the Thematic files do it on your own risk. We strongly recommend using a child theme otherwise you'll loose all your changes with the next upgrade of Thematic.

    Cheers,

    Chris,

    I can add HTML inside header already. I'm using thematic_header() and it's fine. But, how can I access (from functions.php), for example, thematic_brandingopen(), so I can put HTML inside #branding, just before #blog-title?

    I couldn't figure it out by myself.

  4. You need to remove the original thematic_brandingopen from thematic_header:

    function remove_hooks() {
        remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_brandingopen',1);
    }
    add_action('init', 'remove_hooks');

    Now you can create your own function:

    function childtheme_brandingopen() { ?>
        <div id="branding">
    <?php }
    add_action('thematic_header','childtheme_brandingopen',1);

    Add whatever is needed to your childtheme_brandingopen.

    Btw.: Everything header related can be found in thematic/library/extensions/header-extensions.php.

    I'm loving this "theme" thing Chris! I'm learning now how to handle all that stuff, and everytime I learn a new way to do things that is just perfect...

    Thanks a lot for teaching me! :D
