    how could I add a link to the google plus tinteo page on our home page. I would like it to be aligned to the tweeter and facebook links.

    + do you have a logo that suits well the abundance theme ?


    Hi anniet,

    You’ll need to open up header.php in the theme files. Look for this line that outputs the rss line:

    <li class='rss'><a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">RSS</a></li>

    right under that line make a new line and add:

    <li class='google'><a href="#">Google+</a></li>

    Now, add the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:

    .social_bookmarks .google a{background: transparent url(../images/skin-minimal/icons-social-rss.png) 0 0 no-repeat;}

    There isn’t an icon already created for a google+ icon, so you’ll need to add one in yourself. in the css above it points to the rss icon in the themes images folder (for the minimal skin, if you are using a different on it will be in that skin folder).

    You can use this image file as a template for creating your own and then replace the image location in the css to point to your new image file. The file name is “icons-social-rss.png” above.




    Thanks Devin, I will make that work.


    Glad that Devin got you back on track.
