MG 1.1 Moving the sidebar Media Block

I am using the option to Display Random Media in a block in the sidebar. But the block is too far down for me. How can I move its position further up, say on top of the Staff Online block?

There's no supported or built in way to change its position.

It would require editing templates. It's much more configurable in XF 2.0 and XFMG 2.0 thanks to the new widget system.
Yeah, 2.0 sounds really great!

I have been slowly digging into the templates, I did add a text box to the Sidebar from some notes I has found that Brogan had written up a few years ago. So if it's simply moving a line of code up in the forum_list template I am all for it. But if it's more then that, I will wait until I upgrade to 2.0, though I don't see doing that for a while yet.

It likely is more than that because we add it in a specific place to the forum_list template using a Template Modification. These aren't directly editable so it is likely better to wait.
