Add new buttons to Top Bar

  • elained


    Hello and thank you for your theme! It rocks.

    Currently next to the RSS icon in the top bar, I was able to add a Facebook Icon through the Graphene Options – Top Bar Section since it was preset (like twitter). Is there anyway to add a new button like an “email” button?

    I’ve been reading the “Modify theme using child theme”. Is this still necessary? Or would I be able to just go into the Graphene “options.php” and add a code there?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!



    The best advice & rule no. 1 in WordPress Scout Manual is to make a Child Theme:

    You Child Theme style.css starts here:

    Theme Name: Graphene Child
    Theme URI:
    Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme
    Author: Roger
    Author URI:
    Template: graphene
    @import url("/wp-content/themes/graphene/style.css");
    /* My modification goes from here */

    Use any CSS editor you trust, like:

    Then again, my advice your choice 🙂

    The next update (1.3.1) will allow you to add your own custom icons (email, linkedin, digg, whatever) to the top bar, all from the theme’s options page.



    Thanks Syahir! I just updated your theme! It’s working great! I absolutely love it!

    I was able to add Linkedin to the Top bar!! And I love the Social Media Bookmark!

    Thanks again!
