I want to move the sign in link inside the header container after the minicart.

Please refer the image below.

enter image description here

As you can see in the image i have pointed it out where it should go.

Now, Some brief information about what i have done.

I have removed the header-wrapper by placing below code in default.xml

<referenceBlock name="header-wrapper" remove="true" />

Then, i have added a custom block where i have created my own custom header like shown in the image, by placing below code in default.xml

<referenceContainer name="header.container">
<block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="custom-header" as="custom-header" template="Magento_Theme::html/customheader.phtml"  after="header.panel.wrapper" />

Then, i moved all elements into by own custom block by placing below code in default.xml

<move element="minicart" destination="custom-header"/>
<move element="top.search" destination="custom-header"/>
<move element="logo" as="logo" destination="custom-header"/>

Now the problem, and things i have tried to solve this.

I want to move sign in link to my own custom-header block. To do this i have tried below things.

By placing below code in default.xml

<move element="authorization.link" destination="custom-header"/>
<move element="authorization-link-login" destination="custom-header" />

Also by placing this code in default.xml

<referenceContainer name="custom-header">
  <container name="sign-in-div" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="signin-wrap" after="logo">
    <block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Account\AuthorizationLink" name="authorization-link-login" template="Magento_Theme::account/link/authorization.phtml" />

Please suggest what i am doing wrong here.

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

In my previous experience with one of my client same (near to) requirement.

Header links needed before minicart without default message, so I'm sharing my experience matching your's requirement.

Link(s) on right side of minicart.

In your theme folder add below code in below file :




1. Move Sign-In Link next to minicart

<!-- move minicart next to search block -->
<move element="minicart" destination="header-wrapper" after="top.search"/>

<!-- move sign-in link  next to  minicart block -->
<move element="authorization-link-login" destination="header-wrapper" after="minicart"/>

2. Move All top Header Links next to minicart

<!-- header default welcome message if want to remove -->
<referenceBlock name="header" remove="true" />

<!-- Keep minicart next to search block -->
<move element="minicart" destination="header-wrapper" after="top.search"/>

<!-- Move top All Header Links next to minicart -->
<move element="header.links" destination="header-wrapper" after="minicart"/>

Note : LESS

Magento default css of float:right for minicart needs to be removed, if we want keep 
links on the right side.
Pt 1. is not mandatory but good to remove 
.minicart-wrapper {   
     float: right; // need to remove float right

Add below code in default.xml

<move element="authorization-link-login" destination="custom-header" />

You should add below code in default.xml

To remove signout from dropdown

<referenceBlock name="authorization-link" remove="true" />

If you want to remove signin signout button from header refer

<referenceBlock name="authorization-link-login" remove="true" />


To remove create an account link

<referenceBlock name="register-link" remove="true" /> 

To remove sign-in link

<referenceBlock Name ="authorization-link-login" remove ="true" />
