relocate header and remove searchbar

    @freedivingbocas

    ok i hope im not dubbel posting but the other thread is locked now.

    I have after some hours of reading in forums managed to get a like box in my header by putting
    ” <iframe src=”//www.facebook.com/plugins/likebox.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FFreedivingBocas&width=292&height=62&colorscheme=light&show_faces=false&header=true&stream=false&show_border=true” scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ style=”border:none; overflow:hidden; width:292px; height:62px;” allowTransparency=”true”></iframe>” in my header.php file.
    now the problem is that i would like to move it to the right lower part of where the logo is, above the sidebar to the right.
    How can i do that?

    its for the page http://www.freedivingbocas.com

    i would also like to completly remove the search bar over the sidebar where the picture is to the right. i think i already put display none where i found info about search bar in the style.css. what am i doing wrong?

    i am using the bouquete theme
    thank you sooo much in advance

    You don’t have a child theme activated on your site – so you will lose any changes you’ve made to theme files when it’s updated.

    You should go back and make a child theme and move all of your changes to the child theme, yes.

    aaa thanks now i think i activated it, but should i make a file called header in the child folder aswell?

    so now what im still struggeling with is to move the facebook box to the right side and if its possible take it down to the hight of where the header image is, but on the right side.
    can i do that and if so how?

    Yes, it’s working now – good job! So your changes should be made in a copy of the header.php file in the child theme, yes. Reinstall the parent theme after you get your changes moved – so that you know you have a clean unmodified copy of the parent theme. Looks like whatever you’ve changed in the header.php file has created some errors so you need to fix those –

    so i made a header child file and a sidebar child file and then reinstalled the theme. and after that the changes made in the child files arent working, the searchbar came back and the fb box disapeared. do i also somehow need to activate these child files aswell or where did i screw up now?

    You need to activate the child theme – right now there is not a child theme active on your site and make your changes in the copies of the files that are in the child theme folder.

    Also, you may need to redo some or all theme settings/options in the child theme – they are not carried over to a child theme.

    Make sure you clear any caching on your site/browser after making changes.

    a thanks for telling me that didnt understod that they got desactivated when i reinstalled, now its activated again. and im back with my 37 errors 3 warnings and the facebook box still in the wrong place.
    how can i fix the errors without taking away the fb box?

    If you post the header.php file (be sure to use the code button when posting code here – see http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Posting_Code), someone can help you correct where you put it, and also with the CSS you’ll need to add.

    ok thanks so what i put in my child header to get the facebook box was this code:

    <iframe src="//www.facebook.com/plugins/likebox.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FFreedivingBocas&width=292&height=62&colorscheme=light&show_faces=false&header=true&stream=false&show_border=true" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:292px; height:62px;" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>
    
    <title><?php wp_title( '|', true, 'right' ); ?></title>
    <link rel="profile" href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo( 'pingback_url' ); ?>" />

    And my main problem is still that the fb box appears in the left top corner of my header when i would like to move it to the right lower part of the header, anyone that might know how to do that?

    WPyogi: do you know how to get rid of any of the errors aswell?

    Move that iframe piece of code below this line:

    <div id="page" class="hfeed">

    Anything you want to appear on a webpage has to go inside the <body> tags.

    Did you make other changes to the header.php file? Looks like the OpenGraph tags are creating a major error.

    @freedivingbocas

    woho! great that got us down to only 9 errors and 1 warning.

    no i didnt make any other changes in the header and i deactivated the opengraph since im not using it anyway.

    are the rest of the errors and warnings important?

    also i still would looove to try to move the facebook box. sorry for nagging about it but it doesnt fit in where it is located right now.

    Those errors aren’t a big problem. I actually should have re-read your OP before posting the above about where to put that code – can you clarify where you want it?

    freedivingbocas

    @freedivingbocas

    ok perfect

    so i realise my limitaciones in trying to explain how i want it so i made you a picture instead:
    this is how it looks right now with the facebook box: http://freedivingbocas.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/actualwp.jpg

    and this picture explaines where i would like it to be located instead:

    Oops, now your site has an error message –

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare bouquet_content_width() (previously declared in /home/content/57/11553357/html/wp-content/themes/bouquet-child/functions.php:13) in /home/content/57/11553357/html/wp-content/themes/bouquet/functions.php on line 20

    Don’t copy the functions file to a child theme :)!

    ok fixed, i discovered a theme error in the dashboard and thought i managed to solve it myself coping everything to the child folder but looks like i copied too much.
