    I updated my Coraline theme and now the menubar is above the header image. Does anyone know a way to put the header at the top and have the menubar below?

    It looks like you'd need to edit your theme's header.php file. The divs #access and #branding should be switched with a little cut and paste. Some CSS styling would need to be applied to finish it up cleanly.

    Whoa there, not so fast. Edits to themes files should never be made. You will compromise the theme and your own changes if you do so.
    Modifications should instead be implemented within a Child Theme. A Child Theme is just another directory within the /wp-content/themes/ directory that inherits your theme's functionality; while providing an environment whereby modifications will not compromise the theme or your own changes.

    Thanks, Andrew. That makes sense for maintenance. I've been coding in the wild west over here.

    This means that you'd want to duplicate the header.php file in a Child Theme, and make the edit there.
