Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

I want to have my facebook icons in my header, I've read over an over and just don't get it. I'm new to this so please if anyone has any info on how to either move the widget to the header area. As of now it's on the right sidebar.. www.passionforlivinglife.com thanks and appreciate your help.

It seems hard, but it is not that confusing once you understand.

1) you need to create a widget area in the header ares so go to ATO->Style & edit HEADER AREA->Configure Header Area and add the following
HTML Code:
<?php bfa_widget_area('name=my_header_area'); ?>
2) go visit your site to cause this code to be run - it will now create a new widget area
3) go to dashboard->appearances->widgets - you should now see a new widget area 'my_header_area' and you can move the widget from the right sidebar to the header widget area.

You may need to position it using CSS so use FireBug in FireFox to look at and experiment with the positioning.

Another method is to just use CSS such as the following in the CSS Inserts section of the theme options.
HTML Code:
#social-widget-3 {
    position: relative;
    bottom: 240px;
    right: 200px;
    height: 0;
If you don't want the title to show you would add the following
HTML Code:
#social-widget-3 .widget-title {
    display: none;
I use Firebug to determine all of this.
