    Did I post this in the correct forum?
    I’m an independent artist so any help would be greatly appreciated. 🙂

    Will anybody please help me, I have no clue how to move the buttons to the header area.
    I do have a CSS plugin but to me it’s like rocket science.

    This might not be exactly what you want but if it was me I’d use the Social Media settings in the Mantra theme settings page to get the icon graphics you want in the upper right of the header. Looks like you already did that to set up your Twitter and Facebook links.

    There is an Amazon option in the settings. For iTunes and CDBaby, or to change the Amazon icon to the one you’re using now you might be able to just replace some of the existing icons that came with the theme with new icons. For iTunes and CDBaby choose social media options and icons that you’ll probably never use, then when you upload the new icons make sure they have the same file name so the theme will be tricked into showing the icon you want.

    For example, let’s use Digg as an example because no one visits that site anymore (LOL). Find the Digg icon and replace it with iTunes, but call it Digg (or whatever its called in the theme folder). Then under Social Media settings when you select Digg the iTunes icon should show up next to Twitter, etc. Hope that makes sense.

    Download and unzip the theme to your hard drive first and then locate the folder with all the icons so you can see their specific names and file dimensions. I think if your new graphics are the same height as the theme icons this idea should work. If instead you find out that theme is set up to only display small square icons you should be able to fix this with CSS.

    As for the “growing” effect I can’t help with that. If it was me I’d contact the webmaster of the DavidCoverdale site and ask if they could send you the code snippet for that growing effect and tell you where it was placed, then you could try adding it to your site.

    Best of luck!

    It works, so cool!
    But, they are on the small side, just like you predicted.
    Could you help me fix that thru CSS?
    I could make Twitter and Facebook buttons the same size, would that make it easier for you?
