I am quite inexperienced with this, but I'm trying to add some text to the left of my navigation menu. I'm using twentyten theme version 1.1, and I would like to have a single sentence appear just below my header, and to the left of the menu.
I have tried adding a 'custom link' by going to appearance-menus and adding it there, but it didn't show up at all. Is it possible that I need to upgrade to the newer version of twentyten? And therefor I should create a child theme? Which is something I would like to avoid just because it seems like it should be simple enough to do, and I haven't done the whole child theme thing before.
Or another thing I tried, was to just go into header.php, and add the text right below where my header is. Like this:
<?php // Check if this is a post or page, if it has a thumbnail, and if it's a big one if ( is_singular() && has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID ) && ( /* $src, $width, $height */ $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), 'post-thumbnail' ) ) && $image >= HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH ) : // Houston, we have a new header image! echo get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, 'post-thumbnail' ); else : ?> <img src="/newwickssite/wordpress/wp-content/themes/twentyten/images/headers/treeheader5.png" width="940" height="162"> *serving the greater montreal area <?php endif; ?>

The problem is it pushes my navigation menu down, and looks weird.
Does anyone have any ideas for me? Thanks in advance.
