I upgraded to iBlogPro 5 and the home icon is missing for the menu bar. How do I get it back?

Also, I can't seem to get footer widgets to show up. I added them in the widget section and have the # of footer columns set to 3 under the Header and Footer section in the theme. Is there something else need to get them to display?

I haven't activated the theme on my site. I'm getting it set up on my local host first and the home icon and the footer widget are not appearing.

I've asked a developer to look into this.

You should go to the admincp wordpress, choose pagelines setting > website setup > Upload custom logo ( upload your logo again ) I did it successfully on my site http://honeymp3.com

Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about.

I think maybe a few of the bugs should have been worked out before PageLines started selling the theme.

I've had it for a couple of days on my local host but at this point there's no way I'm using it on my site.

Still no footer widgets either?

2708matong, You have exactly the same problem. All of the other iBlogPro themes have a home icon where the error is pointed in the picture. I don't know if you have any footer widgets active but none are showing up on your site. Typing home in the menu bar is a pretty crappy solution.

I have been messing around with this trying to get it to work for you. Hopefully this does it:

Add the following to your custom code -> custom CSS (but change the url between the "" to the location of your home image):

 .main_nav ul li.menu-item-home a {
	    background: url('http://localhost/img-here.png') transparent no-repeat 15px 4px !important;
	    width: 30px;
	}

And then visit Appearance -> Menus and change the "Navigation Label" of your "Home" menu item to:

 

The menu label will show up blank (it's actually a space) but that's ok.

Hope that helps!

Thank you simple simple_mama. That worked for displaying the home icon but it disappears when I go to the Vanilla forum. Any ideas how I can keep it there while using Vanilla.

Is your vanilla forum using something else for nav (like simple nav)? Unfortunately I would need a link to your site to debug. Can you provide one?

2708matong, did you change the image URL to an image you wish to use? Could you provide a link to your site and to the image you're trying to use? Thanks.

First thing first, your image is far too big, therefore I have resized it, you can download it here. The simply upload it to your site and then use the code Simple_mama provided above. Remember to change the path in the code to point to where you uploaded your image. Once you have this working, reply here and give us a link to your vanilla forum page and we can see why it isnt working there.

The link to the home icon you want to use doesn't work. Where did you upload the image exactly?
