S'up bitchez?

Here's a little tip to get some social icons inserted into your navigation bar so it looks something like this:

First off you need to find the div ID of the final nav tab in your navigation menu. You can do this using Firefox Firebug (great tutorial here from Elson Tan). In the example used in the code below, the div id of the tab is #xg_tab_xn47 but yours could be Members: #xg_tab_members or Blogs: #xg_tab_blogs, or whatever.

Once you know the tab div ID, replace the green code below with yours.

The red code will also need changing depending on your urls and choice of wording.

Once you've done that, insert the code into your custom code box and you're done.

<script type="text/javascript">

x$(' #xg_tab_xn47').after('<li style="padding-left:10px;
border:none;"><a style="font-family:georgia; font-style:italic;"> Follow</a></li><li
style="border:none; margin-right:-10px;"><a target="_blank" href=" http://yourTwitterURL"><img
width="20" /></li><li style="border:none; margin-right:-10px;"><a
target="_blank" href=""><img
width="20" /></a></li><li style="border:none; margin-right:-10px;"><a
href=" https://yourGPLUSURL" style="text-decoration:
none;"><img src="" style="border:
0;" height="20" width="20" /></a></li><li style="border:none;
margin-right:-10px;"><a target="_blank" href=" http://www.facebookURL"><img
src=" width="40" /></a></li>');


This tip will only really work on networks that don't have many tabs and sadly i'm only using it on a development site at present so don't have a working version to show, but i thought i'd drop it in for anyone who could use it.

Script attached as well

ps, further tip, if your Manage Network tab is cluttering things up, hide it by putting this in the advanced css section:

      Hi, did you copy the code from the attachment ? There are often issues with code getting broken when pasted on discussions hence the attachment. Also, have you definitely located the correct div id of the final tab?
      • NC for Hire

        looks like you have got the right tab id but your code is broken over several lines. try the code in the attachment :-)

        • It worked perfectly when I copied via the attachment! Thank You Superstar :)
