What I need to achieve: When the user is logged in, I want his/her avatar + summary info shown in the side bar to appear in the top right corner of the header. What I did: I pasted this in the header template: Code: <xen:sidebar> </xen:sidebar> What I got: Nothing. There was no change to the header. However, I tried adding the same couple of lines to other templates and it worked as expected, i.e. the user avatar+summary appear wherever the code is pasted. I would appreciate it if someone can help me understand why is that, and if there is a better way to do what I am trying to do. Thank you in advance P.S. I am new to this thing. Please feel free to state the obvious!
