    How do i add social media icons to the very top right of my website.

    I want to add the ususal, facebook, twitter, youtube etc

    here is the site
    http://www.webdevworks.org/dev16/imagechina82/

    And it was made using this theme
    http://themeforest.net/item/minibuzz-minimalist-business-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/101548

    However - there is no widget for the top right header, like there is in other themes i have worked with in the past... do you mean i have to start hard coding in this normal functionality?

    Please help

    That's what it means.

    Your options are to hardcode in the actual links, or probably better is to code in a widget area.

    A google search for widgetizing themes or adding widget area to header may help

    This may help a little. It discussed how to code sidebars. Once you understand that the term 'sidebar' just means a widgetized area

    I know its been a while since your post not sure if you fixed your issue but I was able to add social media icons to the right of my header image using the 2010 theme. I created a video tutorial to help others. I just posted it on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9ihqEKHMHc. I hope it helps in some way.

    Cheers!
