The Monarch Dashboard
The Monarch Dashboard is a custom designed interface built into the WordPress Admin Panel that allows you to configure, manage, and monitor your social sharing and social following. This is where you can setup your social networks, design your Monarch buttons, and track your social statistics.

Try Out the Hover Styles!
One of the first steps in configuring your Monarch design settings is choosing a hover style. Below are the hover options for the social floating sidebar along with a link to all of Monarch’s design settings.
The Monarch logo is a butterfly inspired M accompanied by a custom wordmark. For brand expansion, I also created an A-Z alphabet based on the Monarch wordmark.
A custom icon font, based on a 16 x 16 pixel grid, was used for the dashboard and social networks Icons. This approach gave us full CSS control over each and every icon.
