Solved Widgets in Header

Post by jbrown21 on June 25th 2012, 11:13 pm

Hey Guys.
I was wondering how I would be able to place a widget (Recent Topics) in the Header of my Homepage. I use PHPBB3.
The only option I'm given with the widgets is Column 1 and Column 3.
Thank You! Smile

Thanks, but the widget "Top Poster" is an existing widget. It isn't a new custom widget.

The tutorial does not say you have to create a new Top Poster widget. You have to create one with this-
Code:
</div><div>

Lol. I know how to create a new widget. But I can't find where I can create a new Top Poster widget anywhere.

If you follow that tutorial, it will move the widget where you want it to be (top or bottom).

Lol. Im sooooo confused. Does that tutorial work for widgets that already exist (Forumotion gives to you)? Or do I have to create my own new Top Poster Widget?

Yes it will work with both customized widgets and the ones created by Forumotion.

Those are my only options when I try to modify the existing Top Poster widget created by Forumotion

You do not modify the widget.

You're welcome.

It was solved by creating a new widget with this -
Code:
</div><div>
and placing it above the recent topics widget on the left column.
