Default Wanting some advise using Composer/Theme Builder

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I got a bold last week, and after being unable to find a theme with the specific requirements, thought I'd have a go at creating my own (now starting to think it is a bad idea).

My requirements are:
Calendar in the today section of the screen
Manage connection button in the banner (like the profile button, but in the top right)
Slightly smaller 'zen' icons

So far, I've been able to get the calendar in the today screen, and through changing the caret icon, resized it to how I want it.

In order to get the manage connection icon in the banner, I think I need to use composer and I've been able to add a basic button to a transparent document, which I've then exported as SVG and dropped into theme builder - although there is no control of this at all in theme builder (apart from setting the navigation path)

What I can't get to happen is have the icon focus as the profile icon does, nor can I see how to make it moveable using the 'reposition banner objects' in theme builder.

As for making the icons smaller, I can't say I've spent much time trying to do this in composer yet, but I can't even begin to see how to set it without coding where the icons will actually be (which should be set in theme builder I thought).

I'm not asking for people to tell me exactly how to do this (although that would be nice ;) ), but any advise for moving in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Study the examples in Plazmic, to make the button you created go to manage connections you need to do that in composer as well. Also to add the focus icons you'll need to do that in composer. Composer is a tough program to get the hang of but if you focus your time and get working at it you can do it. Took me quite some time to get the hang of composer
