[resolved] inserting social media icons when theme doesn't allow widgets (2 posts)

    hello!
    i'm currently using imbalance 2 theme, for my blog http://www.thefactoryofthoughts.com

    this theme doesn't allow widgets and i want to include social media icons rather than text links on the right header menu.
    currently, i just added text links to facebook and flickr as a workaround, but it's not a professional looking solution.
    i thought that combining the links with icon images at my gallery would fix the problem. so i came across an external forum giving instructions to add a line in stylecss, after finding out the ID for the link you want to modify. here is the coding i used (of course, updating menu item numbers + link to image):

    #menu-item-165,
    #menu-item-166 {
    text-indent: -9999px;
    width: 40px;
    }

    #menu-item-165 a,
    #menu-item-166 a {
    background: #0b2300 url(images/menu-home-bg.gif) top center no-repeat !important;
    }

    #menu-item-165 a:hover,
    #menu-item-166 a:hover {
    background: #0b2300 url(images/menu-home-active-bg.gif) top center no-repeat !important;
    }

    unfortunately this didn't work.
    i would really appreciate if you would suggest me an alternate solution.

    THANKS!
