[SOLVED] Slideshow doesn't show in header area

Hello everybody, i have a little problem.

I'm tryng to show into my homepage(blog) a slideshow(meteor slideshow).
This is working when i insert it in a page with the shortcode, and as a widget.
But he don't show up when i put the correct code into the header area:

I tried to put it after the logo section and after the %image(that i don't actually use)...this is the code into the Configure Header Area, like i saw it in a few posts in this forum.
%logo <?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?> %page-right

Not necessarly i've to put it in the logo area, even the %image can be fine, but i need this slideshow to works.
The link to my site is HERE, i've coloured in black the logo area so you can see when i want to put the slideshow.

P.s: i'm using the latest version of WP and Atahualpa.

you can not use php in the header area due to a wordpress requirement except for the new widget area code (because of the way the theme parses it.

So remove the code '<?php if ( function_exists( 'meteor_slideshow' ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?>' and put in the new widget area code, add a text widget to the new widget area and add your code to the text widget.

OK, thx for the reply,you are very gentle
My next question now is...how can i put the widget area into the header section?
'Cause i've posted this code after the %logo : <?php bfa_widget_area('name=My new widget area'); ?>
But nothing is happening.
How can i create a text widget to insert my php function for slideshow?

Btw, congrats for this theme, it is very professional and useful.

Putting the code as you have it should have created a new widget area called My new widget area in Appearance>Widgets. You can make that widget area a different name by using different words in that part of the code.

Now you can put a php aware widget such as the Linkable Title Html and Php widget and put the php code for the Meteor slideshow in it.
