Looks like the icons are much too large.

Not sure what happened in that picture. Here's how it goes ...

Select your menu, click the 'Design' button. Go over to your options and click 'Menu' then 'Menu Buttons'. You will need to select each button one at a time if you want to put different icons on each one. Select 'Home'. Come down that faded out list till you see 'Icon' and put a check in the box. Then load your icon file. Depending on the size of your menu button you need to select the proper size. Typical icons are 16x16 or 32x32 or 48x48 or 64x64. Select your icon file and it will be added. I just tried this and it works great. If you need icons, well, GOOGLE! :D

Hmm.. having no luck at this right now.. I followed your instructions and i'm still getting a repeat image after adding an image. Also there is no checkbox next to the add image file, just a plus and minus.

You're missing something. When you start with a theme, follow my instructions above. If you select all buttons then the image will repeat to all buttons. If you select each one separate then it will not. Start with a new theme and go one step at a time. Once you see how it works, then go back to your menu and see what is different.

I'm in the menu section and selecting one button at a time, but when I load an image it just repeats. I'll make a video to show you exactly what i'm doing, hopefully that will turn some results.

64x64 is much too large, unless you want huge buttons. Try 16x16.

Mine were 32x32 for the basic menu I used in the sample above. Inger is right however, 64x64 would be HUGE! :cool:

It works! Thanks Gunsmoke and Inger :).. I had the steps kind of confused when you said select "Home" I was clicking on the home button in the actual menu on the left side when I should have been selecting it from the Menu
