simple icon on right of nav bar without using custom menus-- but how? (4 posts)

    Hello friends,

    I have been half-way around the world with this issue and have tried many different things.

    My goal is to have a small linked (custom) icon on the right side of my nav bar, without resorting to custom menus (already did that, and it required more work to keep the child pages in the right place, etc).

    Is there a simple way to do this? Perhaps I can set it up in the header.php?

    Who knows? Any answer or insight is much appreciated.

    Yes, you can likely set it up in your header.php file...question then is what is in your header.php now? Without knowing this, it will prove difficult to even guess at a solution...

    I forgot to provide the site I'm working on:


    I've added a linked fb icon to a site before (see here) so I can copy some of what I did there, but I do not know what/how to space it so that the icon sits neatly around the nav bar.

    With a Twentyeleven Child theme, just add a new <div> just before </nav> of the header.php file in Child Theme...If it is not there now, just copy the file from parent to child theme folder....in the <div> will be your new content...give the <div> a unique class or ID and make sure to float it right.
