How to move the currency switch to the header?

Hi all,

I’m trying to move the language switch to the header. I’ve seen that it is included on the directory.xml file:

<catalog_category_default>
        <
reference name="left">
            <
block type="directory/currency" name="currency" before="catalog.leftnav" template="directory/currency.phtml"/>
        </
reference>
    </
catalog_category_default>

I’ve seen that I can move it to the right by changing reference name to “right”, but when i try to change it to “header”, it doesn’t work.

Has someone dealt with it before?

Cheers,

Gabriel, this might be of some use.

I learnt a thing or two from sitting through Excercise one which was about how to move an Advanced Search from the footer into the header.  From what I saw and from what you’re asking I feel this’ll help you out.

Regards,

Rich.

Hi Rich,

Thanks for your fast reply.

That’s exaclty what i’ve done… I can change the currency switch block around the page, but i can’t put it on the top, which is very strange…

Anyone has an idea of why this happens?

Cheers,
