    Thank you for this post. I’m running WordPress 3.8 on Stylish version 1.1.1

    In the section referencing headers, whenever I select the “choose icon” box, nothing pops up to select an image or color. It simply doesn’t do anything, as it the link is missing from the button to serve the pop up.

      Hello, Mike.
      The issue can be (and it actually was) solved by a clean installation of the theme and and updating of the dependent plug-ins, though other factors can cause the choose icon button’s pop-up window for the header navigation to not display properly.

        Lisias – I see you haven’t been here in a while.

        1) studiomh asked recently “How can I insert custom icons? Does this latest release support custom icons?

        2) In the features list, it states “over 300 icons”. Is that the current selection for navigational icons? The older version I’ve worked with had about 25. Just want to make sure we a talking apples to apples. Thanks.

      you’ll need to edit theme’s files and codes to do it or you could hire and expert to do it for you.
