    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:

    http://www.blackboarddreams.com

    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.

    Tom

    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 {
    position:absolute;
    left:400px;
    top:15px;
    }`

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

    #description {
    position: relative;
    left:425px;
    top:-40px;
    }

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

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