    In the Sentence theme, is there a way of creating a new social media icon on the sidebar? I’d like to have a link to my Flickr account.

    Open up sidebar.php and replace following line:

    echo '	<li class="rss"><a href="'.avia_get_option('feedburner',get_bloginfo('rss2_url')).'">RSS</a></li>';

    with:

    echo '	<li class="rss"><a href="'.avia_get_option('feedburner',get_bloginfo('rss2_url')).'">RSS</a></li>';
    echo ' <li class="flickr"><a href="http://myacounturl.com">Flickr</a></li>';

    Instead of “http://myacounturl.com” insert the url to your flickr account.

    Then add following css code to the css/custom.css file or into the quick css field and adjust the icon url/path if necessary:

    .social_bookmarks .flickr{background-image:  url(../images/layout/icon-flickr.png);}
    #top .social_bookmarks .flickr:hover {background-position: -47px center; background-color:#ffa133;}

    The demo code above will work if you name your flickr icon “icon-flickr.png” and you need to place it into the sentence/images/layout/ folder.
