Support » Themes and Templates » Widget in the header?

  • I’m writing my own theme. Is it possible to make a widget-ready HEADER rather than sidebar? In other words, can I call dynamic_sidebar in header.php? I know, I could just try it and see if it works…

    (The reason I’m asking: I’m making a plugin for managing page menus. Page menus can go in the header, footer, sidebars…)

    Yes.

    Yes, this is possible. In fact, one could make an entire theme widgetized. Hmmm…

    Hey there JustMagicMaria did you ever get this to work?
    I am looking at adding a widget to my header also. Just wondered how to do it, I was trying this: with no luck, I thought I would have a third column in the admin/presentation/widgets page.

    <h2>
        <?php if ( is_home() ) {
        	bloginfo('description'); }
        	else if ( function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar('Top Sidebar') ) : else :
        	{
        	the_category();
        	} endif;?>
        	</h2>
