How to move banner in theme twentytwelve ?

By default in twentytwelve, the banner is under the nav menu, how to move it above just before the menu and behind the title of the website ?

Just add these two lines in style.css of child theme.

#page {background: #ffffff url(http://2012.wpmu.xilione.com/files/2013/06/header-twenty-twelve.png) no-repeat top center;}
hgroup {height:182px;}

The first line inserts image pre-saved in Media Library. The second line moves the navigation menu just under the banner.

Child theme TwentyTwelve-xili – What’s new in version 1.2 ?

This example of child theme based on parent TwentyTwelve was completely rewritten.

Before updating to v 1.2 – VERIFY that version 2.8.8 of xili-language plugin is installed !!

It is now based on library and classes included in plugin xili-language and results of future TwentyTwelve-xili development for WP 3.6.

Previous features are conserved.

For webmasters : Live Theme customization is active, cloning of navigation menus and widgets zone possible, a default random slideshow is added by default.

For developers : This example is rich and the class is extendable. The code source in functions.php is tiny.

Installation

Q: How to install this child theme ?

R: Like other child theme: upload the folder in themes folder near twenty twelve folder. In Appearance/Themes select this child as active theme. Next: setting the widgets and menus and xili-language settings (see wiki pages).

Soon more infos … ;-)
