For the upcoming 1.0.5, I was looking for a way to allow for widgets to be added to the same area of the top menu. The idea was provided by a Web design client, wanting to have social icons to the right of the top menu. I did not want to rely on a plugin, as the few I could find were outdated, last updated 2 years ago. So, after several tailored Google searches, I stumbled upon a tutorial by Justin Tadlock, which provided the answer I was looking for, even though the post is from 2009 it still works great.
I splashed in a little CSS, some jquery and of course added in an option in the theme option panel and this makes everything work so nicely.
And here is the source for Justin's awesome code 😀
