  1. Hi,

    I just tried to make a new widget above the leader asides, but it did not work. It did add a new widget to the list but maybe it is not possible in this area.

    here is my code

    // This will create your widget area
    function large_widgets_init() {
    register_sidebar(array(
    'name' => 'Above LeaderAside',
    'id' => 'above-leaderaside',
    'before_widget' => '<li id="%1$s" class="widgetcontainer %2$s">',
    'after_widget' => "\n",
    'before_title' => "<h3 class=\"widgettitle\">",
    'after_title' => "</h3>\n",
    ));

    }
    add_action( 'init', 'large_widgets_init');

    // adding the widget area to your child theme
    function large_sidebar_widgets() {
    if ( function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && is_sidebar_active('above-leaderaside') ) {
    echo '<div id="above-leaderaside" class="aside">'. "\n" . '<ul class="xoxo">' . "\n";
    dynamic_sidebar('above-leaderaside');
    echo '' . "\n" . ''. "\n";
    echo '' . "\n" . '</div><!-- #above-leaderaside .aside -->'. "\n";
    }
    }
    add_action('thematic_above-leaderaside', 'large_sidebar_widgets', 0);

    in case it is not possible, how can i put something between the main menu and the leader asides when using a child theme ? I have a page-template but placing before <?php get_header() ?> makes it appear too high up and placing after makes it appear below the leader asides.

    here is what i'm trying to do http://www.panoraks.co.uk I'd like the large panorama to appear before the leader asides, instead of just after :)

    Sorry to be a pain, must say I am having so much fun with this theme and the help on the forum is excellent so many many thanks !

    cheers in advance,

    tom

  2. Hey Tom,

    pretty good .. only thing that needs a tiny change is your last line:

    add_action('thematic_belowheader', 'large_sidebar_widgets', 5);

    thematic_belowheader is the action hook
    large_sidebar_widgets is your function
    5 is the priority

    The leader asides are integerated with Prio 6 .. so using a lower one moves your function in front of leader asides.

    Cheers,

    Chris
