    Create a sidebar.
    PHP sidebar into your header, or wherever you want them.
    <?php get_sidebar( $name ); ?>
    add your widget within

    <?php the_widget('WP_Widget_Meta'); ?>

    thanks for the reply noahjonah, i added that php to my header and it seems to have added every link on my page to my header. maybe im doing something wrong. you can see what happened by clicking on my page http://www.leegabrielle.com/wordpress/

  4. Hi Minoka,

    The instructions that noahjonah provided are not complete.

    If you want to move the footer widget, then you would be better to just grab the code fro that that's in your footer.php template and move it to your header. php.
    That would be an easier way to do it. Technically speaking they won't be "footer" widgets anymore, but no one will know about that.
