    Hello all, so I am very close to introducing my website (prose theme) to former students, current students (Sept. 9th), colleagues, administrators, parents, and a few other interested parties. And this site and its contributors have been very helpful, so thank you! On with it: I am thinking about moving my header title and tagline above the primary navigations bar. One, can that be done? If so, how? Thank you so much! My site:


    On another note: I am using BBpress for my forums and have it all set up. One thing though, how on earth do I get the bbpress sidebar to show up on the forums page? I have asked this on the bbpress forum but got no response.



    Hi Sean,

    We can do this easily with Prose. (We’re actually going to move the menu, not the header.) From the Code Snippets for Navigation Menus we can get the bits to move things around…

    Please add this snippet in your Custom Code at the bottom of the section “Custom Functions':

    //* Reposition the primary & secondary navigation menus
    remove_action( 'genesis_before_header', 'genesis_do_nav' );
    add_action( 'genesis_after_header', 'genesis_do_nav', 'genesis_do_subnav' );

    This will place things in the order: Header, Primary Nav Menu, SubNav Menu.

    Sorry, I don’t know about fixing your BBpress sidebar.

    Good luck with your classes this fall.

    Hi Tom and thanks for your response. I used the code and it does exactly what you said (i.e. placing both navigation menus beneath the header). However, I am actually trying to move the header title and tagline (Blackboard Dreams, English with Mr. Leon) above the header image and the primary navigation menu. Can that be done? And thanks for the good wishes for the fall!




    Arrrgh! I’ve been schooled by Mr. Leon! (and it’s not even September)
    I misread that as “moving my header, title and tagline” (3 items) “above the primary navigations bar”.

    I expect, then, that you want to sandwich your header image between the nav bars and place the title and description above all of it. If so, this should work:

    remove_action( 'genesis_site_title', 'genesis_seo_site_title' );
    remove_action( 'genesis_site_description', 'genesis_seo_site_description' );
    remove_action( 'genesis_before_header' , 'genesis_do_nav' );
    add_action( 'genesis_before_header' , 'genesis_site_title' );
    add_action( 'genesis_before_header' , 'genesis_seo_site_title' );
    add_action( 'genesis_before_header' , 'genesis_site_description' );
    add_action( 'genesis_before_header' , 'genesis_seo_site_description' );
    add_action( 'genesis_before_header' , 'genesis_do_nav' );

    If you want to reposition the description, try one of these CSS options:

    1. As per the pic (kinda fails as responsive)`#description {

    2. Gets more out of the way on small screens:

    #description {
    position: relative;

    3. do nothing: it just tucks under the Title.

    Ends up looking something like this :
    Prose reposition Title and Tagline/Description

    I hope it’s OK that I pop into this thread as I’m wanting to do the exact same thing as the end result that you are showing. Thanks for the code for moving the title. I’m having problems with getting the title and tag line to format properly. I also included the CSS change for the title and tagline font but it doesn’t seem to responding correctly. I’d also like to have the font match the “Welcome to the Driftless Prairies” and I’d like to play with the color of the font. My site is http://www.driftlessprairies.org Many thanks!
