Is there a way to add "Google Language Translator" plugin to header of site

    I have this plugin installed on my site taginator.com, but have to have it installed on every page for it to work functionally. Is there a way to put it in header where say the search bar is and move the search bar to a widget? Any help would be awesome.

    Thanks

    Ah, you’re using a very old version of the Graphene theme. Newer versions have the “Action Hooks Widget Areas” feature which you can use to add the translator output to where you want it.

    I like the old version of the theme.. used the newer one on a real estate site i do and it is constantly removing header image and other weird little issues. So i kept taginator.com and etscompany.com on the old theme. So your saying there is no way to put it in this version header?

    Thanks

    There is, but requires some coding and a child theme if you want to do it properly.

    Or since you’re not gonna update it anyway, you can just edit the theme’s files directly.

    Fair warning, though: by not updating the theme, you are leaving yourself vulnerable to potential security issues now and in the future. Additionally, as WordPress is updated, older versions of the theme may become incompatible with the WordPress core. Not updating WordPress leaves you even more vulnerable to security concerns than not updating the theme does.

    will have to look into it.. cause editing the files directly is not working.. too well.

    Updating the themes worked perfect.. Only had to redo the social header icons.. The only thing i notice on both sites is that the Google translator plugin doesn’t seem to work in my version of IE. Works in FF and Chrome though.. Guess that is a plugin issue.
