[resolved] Is it possible to post above header? (5 posts)

    I would like a theme with this structure:

    Reader arrives to see the top of the page with a scripted message (post) on a beautiful background, changed daily. Underneath that would be a horizontal line, and below that, 2 - 3 columns: navigation, asides, pages, comments and registration, etc.

    Question - why are all the headers first? And why are all the posts UNDER the headers? Is my dream (above) possible?

    Question - why are all the headers first?

    It's a bit like asking, why is the door to your house at the front? It just makes the most sense.

    That does not mean you have to have it that way, but to have the header below, would require a bit of hacking to most theme structures.

    To put it another way, why do books have chapter titles before the chapter contents? Because it's expected.

    How about putting it like - the post IS the header? orrrrr a Dynamic Header. So as long as I keep the "title" stuff first, the rest is just cut and pasting code into different places on the templates, right? Is there a forum for those of us dabbling in design - more like adapting a design?

    One such place is right here:

    Like you, [and myself to be honest], a lot of people who visit here are keen to change the 'normal' layout structure.

    Post your ideas, ask for help and see what happens.
