Good Morning,

I am attempting to customize the Header Controller widget and I am running into a roadblock.  So far I have been able to adjust the header's height, adjust my logo size, and stacked my title and subtitle.  Now I want to align my links to the right side of the header and change the links from a label to an icon.

Below is a screenshot of what I currently have.

What I would like to do now is move the Facebook/Twitter links to the right side of the header and then replace the labels with an icon. Below is a rough idea of what I am trying to accomplish.

This is all I have been able to find.  The screenshot below is in my main config.json file

And this is what I found in the widgets/HeaderController/css/style.css file.  Not sure if this is where I would do my edits.

I am primarily a python coder so I am very new still to the web development world so any help would greatly be appreciated.  Thank you.

Matthew,

   Probably your simplest way to do this is to use the custom Url Button widget.

Url Button Widget Version 2.5 - 08/10/2017 

Otherwise you will have to do a lot of re-coding of the HeaderController widget to make the links be icons and move their container to be on the right.
