A few questions on header edits

Recommended Posts


I a trying to do a few things that I had before on my site but they dissappeared with the most recent upgrade and the editor is different so I can't find what I need in the CSS. Yes, I have Firebug but I still can't find it.

First I want the social icons to be larger. I've added the following many place bit it still isn't working.

.icons {text-align: right;position: absolute;bottom: 50%; right:0px;line-height: 20px;height: 24px;}

.icons a {

display: block;

width: 48px;

height: 48px;

margin-left: 8px;

float: right;

text-align: right;

opacity: 0.8;


Basically I want less opacity and larger icons. Where/what am I doing wrong? Second I have this in my custom CSS

.brand-links a{color:#786b5e !important;font-weight:bold;}

.brand-links a:hover{color:#663300 !important;font-weight:bold;}

.brand-links a {padding: 0 15px;margin: 0 0px;width: auto;}

.brand-links {


width: 980px;


I then in the functions had a file with text links that appeared to the right of my logo above my social icons. I can not locate my previous thread on how to manually add those text links so I'm asking again.

Thirdly I've tried to make the header space smaller in order to get more content above the fold but it does not move?

To resize your icons, you may want to try this code:

.icons a img {width: #px;}[/CODE]

The width of a link class can't be adjusted, but the image can.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Okay so this helped some - the icons look a little weird I've tried fixing the width but they will not get any wider even though the original image that is there is wider. Is it possibly a padding issue or something?

Do you know anything about adding the links? I had links above the social icons to my About, Contact, and Advertise pages. I know how to make the links but the coding of where I added them is no longer there and the layout is all weird from what it was before.

I have tried searching for my previous thread and looking in my user profile but it only shows me the most recent 6 or 7 topics with no previous threads link.

Hi there,

There's no padding on the icons, only a margin, i've tried adjusting but it hasn't made any difference. i have had a result on the following code

.icons a img {

    height: 77px;

    width: 64px;


Can you remember how you added the previous links? Was it as a hook? If so the code should still be within the base theme or customize plugins 'functions.php'.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      Hi team,
      checking my site today, i'm surprised to see my MegaNav all in bottom of the pages, while it's in header.
      After getting to change it in couple of pages onto Template part (too time consuming !), i'm desperate and ask you for help :-)
      Thank you in advance !

      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…
