    I'm editing this theme here: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/small-business

    What i need to do is take the red bar with the search box thats on the top of the page and move it between the slideshow and (logo+navigation) section. I'm not sure how i can achieve this. I assume some form of CSS editing. I would move the html down but then I'm confused since WP makes the user add content through their control panel?

    You will probably need to modify the header.php file and possibly the relevant CSS code as well. But before making any changes to theme files, be sure to create and use a Child Theme -- so that any changes do not get overwritten when the theme is updated.

    When I started modifying and then building my own themes I was running into layout issues all over the place. I actually bought a course on building websites using WordPress:

    Granted it only covered the basics and some of the more advanced topics that I felt could of been covered in more detail where just glossed over, but it was enough to get me started.
