    Hello!
    The site I am working on is: http://dreaminspireddesign.com and I am interested in adding some space above the header where I can place a small icon and text (email, phone #).

    Could any of you enlightened ones walk me through the steps to accomplish such a task?

    thanks in advance!

    Ana

    Do you have a child theme set up? That's the first step before making those kinds of changes - which will require modifying the header.php file.

    Can you post a copy of your header.php file to a pastebin? See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Posting_Code

    Also, what exactly do you want to add and where?

    Here is an image with what I would like to see.

    Basically, I want to create a small area (?px) above the header, containing three hyperlinked images, right aligned.
    I know how to do the code for inputting the images and then linking them, but I do not know how to code to make the space/area, and then how to make sure the elements are aligned the way I envision.

    My header.php is (LONG!):

    <?php
    /**
     * The Header for our theme.
     *
     * Displays all of the <head> section and everything up till <div id="main">
     *
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Twenty_Eleven
     * @since Twenty Eleven 1.0
     */

    Sorry for disappearing - had to do a few other things, but here's what you need:
    Add the following code between the top and bottom lines of code (the top and bottom lines are in your header already:

    </hgroup>
    
    <div class="topinfo">
    <div class="email">put email here</div>
    <div class="fbicon">put image here</div>
    <div class="phone">put phone number here</div>
    </div>
    
    <a href="http://dreaminspireddesign.com/">

    Then add this to the bottom of your CSS style.css file:

    .topinfo {
       float: right;
       font: ;
    }
    
    .email {
       float: right;
    }
    
    .fbicon {
       float: right;
    }
    
    .phone {
       float: right;
    }

    We'll need to fix the alignment and spacing, but this should get the big pieces in there.

    YOU ARE A GENIUS! :) Thank you so very much!
    I feel I only need to tweek the spacing a tiny bit, move the header down a bit, so: WOW! I'm amazed.

    Thank you again!
