Can't get my icons to stay put.
I am trying to get our social media icons to stay in place, no matter how zoomed in or out you are (ctrl+scroll). We have clients with varying monitor sizes, technologies, browsers, etc.
The website is www.cleantelligent.com
Currently our icons are floated and aligned right, so no matter how you look at it, they line up with the right side of the screen. How do I get them to "stick" right under the "get started" button, no matter where you look?
There's a lot of CSS formatting on this page that deals with the slider right below and I don't want to displace or mess anything else up.
Is there any way to get them to stay right under the button while in their own div, span, aside, or whatever?
I will be copy/pasting this onto every page as well.
The code is as follows:
<div id="primary" class="showcase">
<div id="content" role="main">
<article id="post-89" class="post-89 page type-page status-publish hentry intro">
</header><!-- .entry-header -->
<!--SOCIAL MEDIA ICONS-->
<div style="align: right; float: right; padding-right: 50px;" id="first" class="widget-area" role="complementary">
<aside id="text-2" class="widget widget_text">
<div class="textwidget"><div class='footer_social_icons'>

What you're describing isn't what I see on the site: the only social media buttons I see are in the bottom-left corner of the page and the Get Started is in the top-right corner.

Keep in mind that all of my attempts are on a stage site, so they are not live.

Pretty sure I figured out a way to show you the site.

So option (b). Your header sits in a width:960px div and the button is float:right. Duplicate that with the social buttons. Fortunately you already have things with that width (like that div#slider-1) so you can put it in there next to the heading.
If you remove the margin-right:8px on the buttons they just barely fit.
IMO that's kinda weird looking...

True, but we will likely be moving or deleting that headline anyway, so it won't look as weird.
Thank you for your help! Any thoughts on what would look better?
