Hi Dan - You'll actually want to use a hook for this. We have some info/videos in our docs about it. But, to get you started: if you look in functions.php you'll see the StumbleUpon icon. Basically you would repeat that same code for the mail icon. In addition, you'll have to add the CSS for the image. I recommend editing your "sprite" image that's contained in your theme, and just adding your mail icon onto the end. This is the default location, as shown in our demo site: http://www.pagelines.com/demos/platformpro/wp-content/themes/platformpro/images/sprite-socialicons.png Info in our docs: http://www.pagelines.com/docs/base-child-theme http://www.pagelines.com/docs/advanced-customization

Hi, I'm experiencing exactly the same challenge as terpys here. Here is my website (http://www.toolsforchange.net) I want to move my mail chimp subscribe widget to the header and position it to the immediate right of the social media buttons. The challenge I am facing - Kate - is that I'm not as skilled as Terpys. I get the basic concept of hooks but I don't know how to write the php to make this happen. I've looked at these videos. I have studied the stumbleupon example but it still is not clear to me. Could you help me in writing this php code?
