Hi everyone, I'm new to WordPress and have a couple of questions about my website (http://www.gigglescoop.com), which uses the Metro Pro theme. Is there a way to get the Ditty News Ticker to go all the way across the page (currently it goes a little over halfway. And is there a way to place the search widget directly on the top right of the header rather than above it? I made the header full width and left a space on the right for the search bar, but can't figure out how to get it there. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks a bunch!http://www.gigglescoop.com
Your header isn't using the built-in title area, but is instead just an image placed into your header area. This is probably the root of most of your problems.
The news ticker you're using is placed into the header-right widget. This element is not full width, as defined by your site's CSS. Instead, it's sitting to the right of an empty "site-title" area that your header image would normally be using.
When you want to add a search widget to your header area, you'd also place it in your header-right widget. Again, this is floating to the right of your empty site-title area, and above your inserted full-width header image.
In order to fix these problems, I would recommend using your functions.php and style.css files to adjust your title-area and upload your logo directly into it. Your search widget can be placed to the right of your logo then, by using your header-right widget area. This whole section can continue to have an orange background by using CSS again. To accomplish the full width news ticker, I'd add a new widget area above your site-title, using the information Brad recommends. Try looking up these tasks separately, and posting a new topic if you need help with any of them. 🙂
