Adding an RSS link to the top of the page (NovaScotia) (4 posts)

    I'm working with a blog utilizing the following theme:
    http://shahin.co.nr/ns/?theme=ns
    (I don't know this site's linking policy so we'll leave it like that for now)

    You'll notice that the RSS link at the top of the page isn't really a link, just a picture. The settings for this theme require you to enter the link to the RSS page, but filling that in still does not "activate" this thing.

    If you'll notice the logo on the left side (NovaScotia), that link is live. What they did was put an invisible transparent picture there called "Spacer.GIF" (as the logo is part of the background). I'd kind of like to do the same for the subscribe link, but I'm unsure where to start.

    Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm not familiar with that theme, and without a link to your site it's hard to say what you need to do, but perhaps this will help: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Feeds

    Thanks, but I already know how to find the feeds.

    I just figured there'd be some generic file in which you could somehow position a picture (with a link) at position X,Y though PHP or JavaScript. WordPress has so many data files and I have no idea what most of their functions are supposed to be for.

    In that case, all you need to do is position a div over the location of the link, and use the spacer image as the link holder. It's css and heml that takes care if it, not php or js.
