How to Add Feedburner Feed Reader Count Button in Thesis Nav Bar?

Thesis wordpress premium theme provides opportunity to customize as per our wish. You might be reading hundreds of cool thesis customization tutorials all over online. This is one another by which you can put Feedburner feed reader count button in top navigation menu bar.

Feedburner in Nav Bar

Here I have shown two codes, one for custom_function.php and another one for custom.css.

The first code for custom_function.php contains function and call to the hook before header. What you can do and should with this code?

You should replace your Feedburner url in ‘your feed burner url here’. And you should replace the next code for Feedburner button image with the code you got in your Feedburner login. You can add the following code in custom_functions.php via wordrpess dashboard or alternate  way to add the code is, add the code in launch.php via FTP or file manager. The path to launch.php is wp-content-themes->thesis_16->lib->functions->launch.php.

// add feed counter in navigation

/* paste the below code in custom_function.php via wordpress dashboard or launch.php file via ftp */

function feed_count()




<a href="your feed burner url here">

<img width="88" height="26" alt="Feedburner feed counter" src=";fg=ffffff&amp;anim=0"/></a>




add_action('thesis_hook_before_header', 'feed_count');

Next, the second code which is what I used to locate the search box in navigation. You should put this in custom.css. If you want to change any height, width size you can change it here.

/*** paste in custom.css file **/

/* feed count in navigation */

.custom .feed {





.custom .menu  {

    Is there a way to add facebook and twitter follow in addition to the subscribe to rss feed in the navigation menu? I’ve been searching everywhere and cannot find this. Thanks in advance!
