Header Template help

I modified the templates/common/header.tpl to move the navbar(menu) to the top - above header. Now the page shows as I want it except for the "current " link (i.e /issue/current). Only on this page the menu moves below the header. Please tell me what page must I change to show the menu on top. Here's below the modified header.tpl

Hi Mika,

Are you familiar with the Unix "diff" tool? I'd suggest using this to generate a diff file describing the differences between your modified file and the original; then double-check each line for typos. If the "current" link has jumped out of place, it may be due to an HTML typo.
