couple of questions on mystique.

  1. 1. I am contemplating changing the theme to Mystique. However, I am looking for an option to add a custom icon/link to Mystique's Theme Option - Social Icons section. I would like to add a WordPress icon which would link to Random Search (see my current theme and the social icon for an example).

    Is this possible through CSS or is this something WordPress would consider adding without CSS upgrade?

    2. Most of the implementation of Mystique I have seen on external blogs and the demo at the creator's site have its custom menu bar in curved shape instead of straight across. The custom menu bar is generally stretches upwards from two ends (with shadows) but pressed in the middle (no shadow) giving it a curved paper shape look. The same appears at the bottom of the blog so it seems the whole blog section has shadow underneath showing through the sides but not in the middle which gives it a pressed-in-the-middle curved shape.

    I am just curious why is this not the same here at WP.com for Mystique theme as I see that shadow underneath the custom menu is all the way across on the bottom and the blog section itself has no shadow? And if I were to get the CSS upgrade, would this be easily supported?

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is ismailimail.wordpress.com.

    Hi there. We currently have no plans to add any new social icons to the Mystique theme. It's not possible to use Custom CSS to add a new icon as well, since that would require modifying the theme's HTML files (something we do not allow here on WordPress.com).

    However -- that said -- with custom CSS, you might be able to replace the background image of one of the existing icons, and then in the Mystique options, set the URL of whatever icon you replaced to link to the Random Search.

    The themes at WordPress.com may vary slightly from the WordPress.org versions, because we adapt them to work in the WordPress.com environment. However, with the Custom CSS upgrade, you can change the visual appearance of the menus and the blog section.

  3. Thanks, appreciate a reply. I will look into CSS option later. It is good to know that both of these preferences are achievable somehow through CSS.
