XF 1.x Header pushed to the bottom after theme upgrade...

It seems there was a setting in an earlier version (1.5.7 I believe) of the Adara theme that allowed the header to be loaded after the content section or some such...? I don't remember ... But after upgrading to the 1.5.11 my custom forum header design and main navigation menu has been pushed to the bottom of the theme:

Please advise as to the setting that would allow the header to remain at the top of the forum as it was designed to be. Example can be seen at http://poetryincolor.online

What the header is supposed to look like:

I'll appreciate the assistance.
Thanks!

More than likely the page_container is outdated. We changed the way XF approaches the header placement. Double check that template isn't outdated / customized. You may need to revert and re-apply your changes.

A quick question though @Russ...
Should I actually 'revert' the template and re-add the changes OR use the merge template system? Like if using the merge template which option would I choose?

I've never seen these options before actually. Is this new in XF 1.5.11 o_O
Thanks,

I personally never really use the merge system to be honest. I typically copy the contents into like notepad ++, revert the template, then compare the changes. You can also click "View custom changes" prior to reverting to see what you need to re-apply.

Thing is... I have about 30 outdated templates!! Ugh. Lots of work..
I didn't realize there had been so many changes from XF 1.5.7 to 1.5.11
Okay. I'll try to figure out something. Thanks again dude.

So for something like that... I'd suggest going into the templates, "view custom changes" and see what was done. If it's an easy edit just revert and re-apply. For some of them you may not even need to do anything other than revert.

Okay. I've just updated the PAGE_CONTAINER template and the header is now fixed, with only a small .css spacing issue remaining. So thanks for the tip on fixing outdated templates. As for the outdated templates @Steve

I had a total of 26 outdated templates. I think the majority of them will only need a small edit to bring it up to date though. And yes! I did re-import the both the new Xenbase and Adara themes.

The theme you see online at http://poetryincolor.online is heavily customized obviously LOL. So ... I'm not quite sure why I didn't even think t check for outdated templates, which I generally do directly after upgrading the style.

Anyway. I'll get it sorted. I appreciate you guys!
