I found the files in /images/exclusive and changed them... but there was no effect on my page. Ideally I can change the coding to them... but I'm happy leaving the coding alone and replacing the source images. If you can point me to the coding, I may add some more links (like twitter, facebook, etc).

Thanks,
Derek

Okay, I figured out the images are at the top level in

/1775/wp-content/themes/atahualpa353/images/

However, only the non-hover image seems to be there. For example, if you go to my site, and point to the comments, you'll find that annoying pink icon for comments still remains. Any ideas?

the easiest way to do this is with a CSS Insert. If you look a a page and then at the source, you will see that the comment icon is using the class 'comment-icon'. if you again look in the source for 'comment-icon, you will find this CSS
HTML Code:
a.comments-icon:link,
a.commentss-icon:active,
a.comments-icon:visited {
	background: transparent url(http://www.derekbeck.com/1775/wp-content/themes/atahualpa353/images/comment-gray.png) no-repeat scroll center left;
}

a.comments-icon:hover {
	background: transparent url(http://www.derekbeck.com/1775/wp-content/themes/atahualpa353/images/comment.png) no-repeat scroll center left;
}
(oh look...there's a bug...the active should be a.comments-icon:active not a.commentss-icon:active - time for a BUGFIX)

so in your case you can duplicate this and add it to CSS Inserts and change the image to what ever you want.

juggledad: thanks for this advice. i did hunt around in the code, but apparently i didn't look hard enough, or perhaps am not using the right tools for my hunt. (I use Google Chrome's inspection feature.)

I don't suppose there is a straightforward way to add additional buttons to that menu? There are all of those extra images in "exclusive", and yet no direct way to add them it seems. I'd really like just facebook, twitter, and RSS.

Thanks, Derek

I'm using Ata 3.3.3 with WP 3.0.1 -- I'd like to have the Subscriptions in the header, but sort of like Derek, I want RSS and E-mail (both via Feedburner) and then a link to my Facebook Fan page. I also use Sociable in individual posts, but those aren't for my subscriptions.

Right now, I have the subscription links in my sidebar, but I'd really rather use that lovely space in the header and use the Sidebar for other stuff.

Alternatively, I'd like to widgetize the header. I've tried (I was able to put a widget in the Kicker) and while I can get the "Header Sidebar" to appear in my list of widgets, I can't get it to actually show on my site -- and yes, I did have a widget in it to test. Despite reading numerous posts here on how to widgetize an area, I'm obviously not putting the php code in the right place. So if I can't include FB in the Subscriptions in the header, could you please tell me exactly where to put the php code to get the widget to appear at the right side of my header?

Thank you, thank you!
