Hi,

Did you look at Designer’s guide?
Or a search on Google?

Sel,
thank you for the feedback. I have looked at both document and actually I have removed <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('topSearch') ?> from app/design/frontend/default/my_theme/template/page/html/header.phtml and then, replaced the reference name “header” in app/design/frontend/default/my_theme/layout/catalogsearch.xml with “top.menu” This moved the catalogsearch in the far right inside the header-nav-container (so then name I got using “view CSS style information” in Firefox). What is the reference name of the navigation bar where the product categories are displayed ? or am I missing something ?

actually, the search is moved into the header-top-container and not in header-nav-container like i have mentioned earlier. In all cases, this does not solve my problem. I am totally confused.
