    Thanks guys – the button is back – most of my plugins have now done a wp 3.5 upgrade so I’m assuming that whatever knocked it out got fixed in an update.

    It works fine on one website but disappears on another. It’s missing in all browsers on one website. – any idea of a possible conflict or something special about what puts the insert button there?

    Thanks Jason – that looks like a better way to use Ubermenu.

    There is also one that is built for Bootstrap.
    If I need to learn the backend (and I’m working my way through the videos to do that) which strategy do you think would work best with JS in the long run – getting a bootstrap based megamenu to work with your menu or embedding Ubermenu properly?

    Right now it is working just fine as long as I don’t go over 31 CSS files.

    BTW – I just migrated one of my other websites to JS and had the whole thing switched over and running smoothly in 2 hours! I’ve just migrated the original – no post grids or sliders yet and still its so much cleaner and responsive.

    Yep – those are the ones I was looking for – here is the odd thing – when I counted CSS files (including them) I got 33 – I killed two CSS files but turning off two sliders and suddenly IE was working.

    So… does IE count them as CSS files? Weird. Maybe I need to root out some of the codes too and use proper CSS s instead.

    Do you have any idea how complicated all of this is to someone who is new – wish I could do a Vulcan mind meld or something – the more I learn the more I realize I don’t know.

    I find the same thing happening with your JumpStart theme – the more I get to know it the better I like it. I was trying all kinds of different ways to get the stretch layout to look more Bootstrap ish and then realized that everything I needed was in builder.

    Now if you only had a Stretch Child theme with the menu beside the logo it would have been perfect – i am not going to tell you how long it took me to finally get it to work…. (and I keep expecting it to break…)

    Oh – just to explain – on my jumpstart test site I had 3 CSS files when I looked at it under firebug called #3 #3 and #3, on my main site I have seven CSS files all called #7 – and I too am confused as to where they come from and what they are doing. I think these are part of a gallery plugin.

    Oh darn I thought by deactivated plugins I had tracked the files to the theme but it looks like they are actually linked to a plugin – will keep looking – thanks for your help – iust knowing they are not theme CSS makes a difference.

    Just to close the loop – in case anyone else is trying to create a menu beside the header. I needed adjust the #access CSS to match the contatainer:

    #access: {
    min-width: 600px;
    max-width: 600px;
    float: right; }

    For some reason this did not work at the end of style.css but it did work when I added it to the existing #access

    These are the DIVs that seem to impact:

    I can see that access is linked to Navigation – which makes sense except how to I tell access where the menu is?
    Is there a doc that talks about access?

    Looking deeper the problem might be with ‘#Access” that seems to be styling the header background to match the background of the menu. I now have Ubermenu turned off and my header area background is white the same as the menu – the menu looks fine if the background is transparent but seems to pick up the background of the menu.

    This is the html:

    How do I tell “access” to stay within themeblvd_header_addon? It seems to want to add a background to the header container.

    Thank you Jason – that is what I needed to know (and you were right – that was what was confusing me).

    Your menu is working fine beside the logo – though when I switch to UberMenu it adds a background that fills the full width and height of the header and covers the logo – I’ll check in with the menu dev to see if I can sort out the CSS to fix it.

    I was using Alyska when we first started – mostly because I wasn’t sure I could handle Jumpstart – but ran into a few challenges with 2.15 and thought I would give JumpStart a try – since you were making trying .php easier. I thought that since the dev docs were the same it wouldn’t make a difference and didn’t want to complicate things – so sure we can moved to JumpStart at this point.

    This is where we started: http://testdrive.teamsfirst.ca/

    This is my actual site: http://www.teamsfirst.ca

    The test sites change a lot – so didn’t want to confuse you – I’m struggling with getting the Types and Views plugin to work properly and have had to restore from backup a few times and ended up wiping out the changes on the Alyska site because of that but since I had copied the changes to the new JS testssite kept going from there.

    The Alyska theme has been lovely to work with but I did find that customizing was easier from Jumpstart and would encourage anyone else who is thinking of customizing a fair bit to make the switch. Jumpstart has many of the familiar features and benefits of Alyska and then adds in more all within a framework that is set up to easily allow you to make it your own.

    I am getting close! The piece I am missing is assigning a div id to the new “header above” widget.
    I can see both widgets

    If I use: #branding .widget-area .header-above{…
    nothing changes

    If I use #branding .widget-area…
    both widgets are formatted the same

    In firebug I do see the div id for my_header_widget area but not for my_header_above and yet I ddn’t put it there wiath a in functions .php. I did add a dive for the header-above widget – but is does not show up 🙁

    I’m wondering if I missed something – both widgets are in my_header_content – just two different spots within it. Should the functions be grouped together or in separate sections?

    This is my functions php:

    * My header content
     */
    function my_header_content() {
    	themeblvd_display_sidebar( 'my_header_widget_area' );
    }
    remove_all_actions( 'themeblvd_header_addon' );
    add_action( 'themeblvd_header_addon', 'my_header_content' );
    /**
     * Add new sidebar location. Header above 
     */
    themeblvd_add_sidebar_location( 'my_header_above_widget_area', 'My Header Above', 'collapsible' );
    
    /**
     * My header above
     */
    function my_header_above() {
    	themeblvd_display_sidebar( 'my_header_above_widget_area' );
    }
    remove_all_actions( 'themeblvd_header_above' );
    add_action( 'themeblvd_header_above', 'my_header_above' );
    function my_header_above() {
    	echo '';
    	themeblvd_display_sidebar( 'my_header_above_widget_area' );
    	echo '';
    }

    this is what firebug shows:

    [raw]Login, Logout, Facebook, Twitter, Linked In[/raw]
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    #branding .widget-area .header-above{
        float: right;
        padding-bottom: 0;
        padding-left: 0;
        padding-right: 0;
        padding-top: 0;
        color: #ffffff;
        font-family: "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
        font-size: 12px;
        line-height: 100%;
        margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
    background: #bbbbbb;
    }

    Figured out that I use CSS to style the widget and now have a lovely widget to the right of my header 🙂

    I tried to add a second widget above the header and almost got it – the widget is there but when I look at it with Firebug the div seems to have a generic name “widget area” rather than a specific one – which makes styling complicated. Did I miss something in the php?

    This is what I added:

    /**
     * My header before
     */
    function my_header_before() {
    	themeblvd_display_sidebar( 'my_header_before_widget_area' );
    }
    remove_all_actions( 'themeblvd_header_before' );
    add_action( 'themeblvd_header_before', 'my_header_before' );

    This is what I see in Firebug
