Sidebar - Visitor Panel


I am interested in moving the 'visitor panel' from the sidebar to the top right side of the page template.

I found that the code is in the PAGE_TEMPLATE and I removed the relevant include. That removed that block just fine and although the next block was touching the search textbox, a simple <br /> managed to cure that issue.

Can anyone tell me on how I can put the visitor box (the box that shows your avatar, Likes, Messages and Points) above the "Log Out"?

Final question, how can I change the avatar size of that area? I saw that there is a call to a xen avatar function with size="m" and img="true" but when I changed the m to s (small) or the true to false for the img nothing happened.

Thanks for any pointers.
