Move navigation above header

I am currently working my way through the book, “Wicked Wordpress Themes” and it sparked an idea, something I have seen on other wordpress sites.

Using the thematic child theme, what is the best approach to take in moving the navigation above the header ?
I would be grateful for a few pointers, especially if using the book for reference.


A little bit of digging and I got a solution that seems to work very well.

Here it is if anyone is interested…

The easiest will be to add a widget area above the header with the thematic_above_header function. Then you can just drag and drop via the widget menu (in WP 3+)

cool, that works too.

thanks for the reply.
