    I would like to use a different icon set for the Facebook, Twitter etc. I already have the png files but can’t figure out how to change or access them. Help? Thanks!

    Upload them to your media gallery first. Then, use the link provided there to add them to

    Graphene Options >> General >> Top Bar Options

    Just for more info – I have installed and coded the ones that came with Graphene successfully, i’m just looking to change the ‘look’ of the icons. where do i add or change a new set?

    You can’t add them as a set. You have to add them one at a time in the media gallery.

    Don’t know why it wasn’t showing up before

    The internets can be weird. 😉

    Hmmm… two problems. RSS seems to be hard coded from somewhere (old rss is still there tho i took it out of the options) and icon size. 64×64? where do i find that info?

    Hmmm…hard to say without seeing your site.

    The default feed for WP blogs is http://www.example.com/feed/

    So yours would be http://electmanuelmedina.com/feed/

    You can set up a different one (I don’t know why you would want to, but you can) and then enter its address in

    Graphene Options >> General >> Top Bar Options >> “Use custom feed URL”

    Default icon set comes from here:

    http://www.nouveller.com/general/free-social-media-bookmark-icon-pack-the-ever-growing-icon-set/

    If you want to use a 64×64 icon, you will need to increase the size of your top bar by adding something like this to your child theme style sheet or custom CSS option:

    #top-bar {height:84px;}

    I changed the png files to 64×64 size and reloaded them, but they are still showing up as too large. don’t know why.

    The default size is 32×32. So by making them 64×64, they will twice as tall and twice as wide.
