I'm trying to get my menu at the top of my page (above the header image) with a search box to the right of the menu and I'm not making any progress whatsoever. (I'm using thematic rev-709 btw if that has any relevance to problem)
Just trying to get the search next to the navigation without moving access to the top is not working out for me at all.
Here's a screenshot of my problem:
As you can see, the search bar ends up on the right on top of the side widget and now the default menu styling has disappeared. I tried adding the sf-menu styles over again to my child theme thinking that might help and it doesn't.
I've followed the instructions to the letter several times at http://www.cozmoslabs.com/2009/04/15/add-a-search-box-to-the-thematic-menu/ and I've also checked out this thread: http://themeshaper.com/forums/topic/move-access-above-header-with-search-widget#post-14921
Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is proving to be extremely frustrating :(
