    1. How do I get a facebook icon up by the search bar with the twitter and rss icons?

    2. Where is the widget for popular posts?

    3. How do I differentiate between the top menu and the menu underneath it? When ever I add something to the menu it goes to both menus

    4. My Slider doesnt scroll between the featured posts it just sits on the first one why is this?

    5. Where do I go to put the small writing underneath menu items?

    6. I want to use 2 sidebars (which is fine) but I want a contact widget with social icons and newsletter spanning both sidebars at the top of that is this possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey,

    1) In header.php replace:

    <!-- there is room for 3 icons, below are predefined classes for others if you want to use them instead -->
    <!--
    <li class='flickr'><a class='ie6fix' href="#">flickr</a></li>
    <li class='facebook'><a class='ie6fix' href="#">Facebook</a></li>
    -->

    with:

    <!-- there is room for 3 icons, below are predefined classes for others if you want to use them instead -->
    <!--
    <li class='flickr'><a class='ie6fix' href="#">flickr</a></li>
    -->
    <li class='facebook'><a class='ie6fix' href="#">Facebook</a></li>

    and instead of # insert the url to your facebook account.

    2) Newscast doesn’t offer a “popular” post widget. You can search one here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=popular+post&sort= though.

    3) Create two menus. The top one call “First”, the other one “Second”. I wrote a short how-to here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/i-can%E2%80%99t-create-a-custom-menu-the-menu-behaves-weird

    4) It depens on whicjh slider you’re using. The news slider + accordion slider don’t support the autoplay feature. The other slider supports it but you need to activate the feature: Newscast Options > Mainpage Options.

    5) You can enter them in the menu item description field. See: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/i-can%E2%80%99t-create-a-custom-menu-the-menu-behaves-weird

    6) It’s not possible without some custom work/code.

    Excellent thank you very much.

    One more question I would like to make my logo bigger (250×70 is very small!) I know you need to edit style.css file but can you let me know what exactly needs to be changed? (Wouldn’t mind something like 400×100).

    #50927

    In style.css search for following code and change the width/height value:

    #top .logo, #top .logo a{
    display:block;
    height:70px;
    width:250px;
    position:absolute;
    left:20px;
    top:13px;
    border: none;
    padding: 0;
    margin:0;
    z-index: 10;
    }

    Sorry one last thing, how easy would it be to put a newsletter signup box underneath the search box at the top of the page? any suggestions?

    #50931

    Hey,

    you’d edit your header.php file. Your signup code would go between the ul and the div:

    </ul><!-- end social_bookmarks-->
    <!-- end headextras: -->
    </div>

    and you’d apply the proper styling through CSS.
