Support » Fixing WordPress » Aligning social media in header [Graphene Theme]

  • Hello:

    I am using the Graphene theme and trying to align my social media ‘like’ buttons to the right in the header.

    Here is the website you so you can see what I mean:

    I do not know code, though I’ve been able to follow some tutorials on the web to modify the .php files.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Go to your themes CSS file and define the header-widget class to align right.

    – always backup files before making any changes.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Can you give me some more help as to the location of making these changes. Are you referring to the file: style.css for the graphene theme? And if so, what line do I make these changes. I can’t find a ‘header-widget’ class in the style.css or any other file for that matter.

    And do I use the code: position: absolute; right 20x

    Add this to your child theme’s style sheet or in Graphene Options –> Display –> Custom CSS

    .sociable ul {
        float: right;

    Thanks for this Prasanna…

    This worked well to move the .sociable plugin at the bottom of the post. However, I am using the social profiles widget (

    for the code above, I tried substituting .sociable for “social profiles:, “social profiles widget”, “social_profiles_widgets”, “social-profiles-widgets”, socialprofiles…. but nothing worked.

    Any thoughts? Am I missing something obvious?


    .at15t_wordpress {
        margin-left: 760px;


    Change the margin value to position it according to your needs.

    Ok: I’ve figured out how to get it to the right side.

    I entered the following into my custom css:

    .social-profiles img {
    	float: right;

    However, I would love to have it aligned to the top, in-line with the rest of the menu items.

    the following did not work:

    .social-profiles img {
    	float: right;

    any thoughts?

    Oh! Are you referring that set of icons?

    Add this to make them appear inline with the menu,

    .social-profiles img {
        float: right;
        margin-top: -23px;

    It’ll give

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    I have been trying to create this for about 2 days by reading css tutorials and so on. You’ve helped me immensely!

    I know there are many other design issues on this page I need to deal with, but now I can move on to deal with them.

    And I’ve also learned alot about WP and coding from the process.

    thank you

    It’s okay. If you have any graphene theme issues, ask the questions at Graphene Theme Support Forum. Chances of getting solutions will be more if you ask there. Me and a few volunteers will always be there to help the people.
