I’m trying to manually put facebook, twitter and pinterest buttons on the top right of my page, inline with the page title, but I have no idea what coding to add into the css sheet. (although i’m a web designer, i’m better at the creative than coding!)
To the right of “CONTACT”? You won’t be able to do that purely with CSS. You will have to edit the theme’s .php (probably header.php, but I can’t be 100% sure) files to add the butttons and then use CSS to tweak the layout.
