It worked! I had tried to put the modules directly to topbar (yes its the one below the top ), but still it was not working. However, I had made a mistake, there was already another module in topbar (quicklinks, only for admin) for which I hadn't given the cloumn width. So it was occupying 100% and then the other 2 were getting displaced. Now I have given columns to all 3 and its displayed properly.
Just on another note, How do I display the topbar full width like this site is using?
Thanks for your help!
