  2. ugh. this must be on the forum somewhere b/c I am sure that i have written it. however, the search function is not the strongest and maybe i am imaging it....

    how to move thematic access (the navigation bar) above the #header div :

    function remove_access() {
    remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_access',9);
    }
    add_action('init','remove_access');
    add_action('thematic_aboveheader',thematic_access');

  4. an ehug? well gosh. ok it sounds like you are really new to thematic and child themes.. so i am going to recommend that you check out these two blog posts to get you started:

    http://www.catswhocode.com/blog/wordpress-how-to-easily-create-a-thematic-child-theme
    http://wptheming.com/2009/10/useful-thematic-filters/

    also getfirebug.com for a firefox addon that is essential to finding css properties.

    the code i gave you goes in your child themes functions.php file. once you put it there i 'believe' it will default to the left and you might not need to change any css.

    I am having the same problem, except I'm trying to get the navigation to be in the right corner, lined up with the edge of the header and main content area. Any suggestions?

  6. If you used the code above in your functions.php, the menu should be in the correct spot structurally.

    Then you will need to modify the 'float' in the style css.

    .sf-menu { float: right; }

    It is fairly simple, if you are having more trouble, a link would help.

    Kaylehope- check out, in your CSS, the properties of #access and of .menu

    #access probably contains the menu.

    You should be able to make either of those things float:right; as long as nothing else is in their way.

    Use firebug, or the "inspect element" right-click feature in Chrome or Safari, to find out where those divs are in your layout.

    *whoops! crossposted with Scott Nix! sorry.
