  • Hello,

    I’ve installed theme Zack 990, and I absolutely love it. However, I would like the menu bar to show up on top of the page (right under the header) – could you please tell me how to do this?
    I am a total newbie to all this so if you could please explain in detail that would be very helpful!!

    Thanks very much in advance!

    There are thousands of WordPress themes – which means that many people won’t be familiar with your particular theme. So a link to your site where people can see the theme might result in more responses.

    you’re right – you can see how it’s displayed here:

    right now the menu is displayed on the bottom of the page. If I have about 10 entries per page, the viewer will have to scroll ALL the way down to see the choices for “bio” “contact info” etc etc …
    I would like to move this menu bar up so it’s right underneath the Header, but don’t know how. 🙁 Please help …

    Thank you 🙂

    That would probably require some extensive theme editing – including moving the nav bar code from footer.php up to header.php (or changing the position of the get_sidebar() call) as well as re-structuring the theme’s CSS. You might be better off looking for another theme with a top nav bar.

    looks like that is your secondary menu do you have any other menus Will need see your header.php file if you paste it in and post the url here so that we can your header file.

    This is the header file for zack 990

    I see that you just not have navigation in your header.php as esmi said you are better off using some other theme.

    Thank you. So, if I move the nav code for the menus from the footer.php to the header.php files… it won’t work?

    You can try and see you can always take off if it does not work.

    well, it worked partially. 8)
    i’ll have to toy with it and become more familiar with this stuff.

    but thank you very much for the help 🙂


    So I’m totally new to WordPress so forgive me if any of this is bad information. I am trying the same thing (to get the nav bar to go to the top of the page.) I started with the Twenty Ten default theme and I’m working from there. Here is my site (its a work in progress and my alignment is currently messed up so forgive me.)

    Ok so what I’ve learned so far, first make a child theme. Look it up on this site they have great instructions. Then you can copy files into your child theme and mess with them.

    So I copied the header.php file and just moved the <div id=”access” role=”navigation”> part of the code to the top so its above the <div id=”branding” role=”banner”> . So far it moved the nav bar to the top above the banner. I still have to pretty it up but at least its in the right place now.

    Hope this helps someone. Here is my header.php code so far.
