    Hi all,

    I’m using the Executive theme to build a website. So far so good.
    But now I want/need an extra widget in the header section to show some additional info.
    For the moment I added a so called Text widget to the ‘Header Right section’, below the Custom menu.
    I need to use negative values to position this widget all the way on the right and above the menu.
    But this textwidget falls off of the page as soon as the text-size of the menu is increased.
    So this is not a very nice solution.
    So I thought couldn’t it be possible to add 3 (or two) extra pre-defined widgets to the header section the same way as the widgets in the footer. To give you an idea of how I think this would look like:

    Header section:

    
    __________________________________________________________
    |     widget 1    |       widget 2       |       widget 3       |
    |       (logo)       |  (text or empty)  | (additional info) |
    __________________________________________________________
    |                                 menu                                         |
    __________________________________________________________
    

    (And then follows the Inner section)

    This way, I think, I can style every widget without affecting the other ones.
    Is this possible with the Executive theme, and how to accomplish this.

    p.s.: If you want to look at the site I’m working on, let me know and I’ll send you an Acces Key

    Oops,

    The header section should look like this:

    
    ________________________________________________________________
    |     widget 1    |       widget 2       |       widget 3       |
    |       (logo)    |  (text or empty)     |   (additional info)  |
    ________________________________________________________________
    |                                 menu                          |
    ________________________________________________________________
