    I am just trying to get the 728x90 banner ad I currently have on the top of the page into the header to the right of the title of the site, BarrelHopping. I realize I may need to widen the entire site a little but need help with two issues. I am using the Tiga theme and my site is http://barrelhopping.com/

    1. Where exactly do I put the ad code to get it to show up in the header to the right of the site title?

    2. I will need to widen the entire site to do the above, where do I go and what do I do to widen the site?

    Any help is appreciated!

    To make these kind of changes to your site requires you to make changes to your CSS and / or html and php.
    Before you do anything else...
    1. Make a backup of your site (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database )

    2. Don't make any changes to a theme itself. Instead make the changes to a childtheme. Should the author of your original theme update the theme, your changes will not be overwritten. Your site with your adaptations will remail intact.
    (see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes )Suggestion: use the 'one click childtheme plugin'.

    3. Use FTP to access the files of your site and it's childtheme.
    Use NOTEPAD++ or proper EDITOR [not wordprosessor] to edit css and php.
    Make the changes in the CHILDtheme!
    - copy php files / css-file(s) of the original theme [as required] to the childtheme directory and edit them as required.

    ad to the style.css of your child theme something like
