The icons that you mention are part of the Login skin object.
If you want to modify the skin, your best bet is to make a copy of the Xcillion folder and rename it. You could call it Xcillion-Me and put it in the /portals/_default/skins folder.
Then you need to modify Home.ascx, Inner.ascx, and Admin.ascx files.
All of those files have a similar structure. If you want to mimic the behavior of the existing skin, add a div just under the div with ID of login. Something like this:
[div id="mystuff' class="pull-right"]
add your html here
if you want to do this often, and actually have one thing that works on all of the skin files, create a skin object for this (it's fairly easy) or add in include at that point (even easier).
thank you - that got me going. it involved quite a bit more work than i originally imagined because the theme login elements are processed on the server whereas mine are strictly handled in client side html and css. so to style it properly, i dug around in the developer tools to reverse engineer a lot of the css settings and html.
i could not find a compatible shopping cart icon, but there was one in the main Images folder which is adequate.
and of course i need to save these changes for the next dnn upgrade which will probably overwrite them. i saved a copy of the original theme and then modified the one in place. maybe it back asswards but i can only do so many new tricks at once.
