    Hello!

    I am trying to add a widget area to the genesis_before_header hook area, using the 24K child theme.

    I used the Simple Sidebar plugin to register the Widget area “Social Bar” (also could by editing the function.php file, but used this plugin hoping it could help with the placement on the page…which it doesn’t).

    What I can’t figure out: what code I need to add to have the widget area actually appear where I need it to.  I am not sure if I can do this with hooks, or editing the header.php file? I’m trying to add a social media bar on ALL pages in the blue area at the top of the site: http://74.53.25.211/~explore/

    I know I am missing something simple here, but have now confused myself reading too many tutorials and forums.

    thank you!! :)

    I found this detailed tutorial: http://www.carriedils.com/add-widget-area-below-nav/

    Use that as reference and customize the hook, where you want to out be shown.

    Thank you! I saw that one previously, but now that I’ve put this on the back burner for a bit, going to see if it makes more sense this time.

     

    thanks!
