2) I’m trying to add the social media icons (just the Facebook icon, actually) AND a search bard to the header in the upper right, but they are stacking vertically. Is there a way for them to appear on the same line? I tried display:inline but it didn’t work.
3) In the footer, I’d only like to display 3 widgets (instead of the 4 default) and have them take up 1/3 of the space. I tried changing the php template to < div class=”three columns” > instead of the “four columns” and removed the 4th php widget if-else statement, but the footer still leaves a blank space for the 4th widget.
Thank you a lot for such a nice feedback, we do appreciate that!
In regards to your first question, please confirm, you have been trying to set social icons in header widgets, and instead of staying inline, like this http://awesomescreenshot.com/031p8onee, they are look like this http://awesomescreenshot.com/0c7p8qmae, right?

In your second question you are asking about columns in footer. Actually theme is designed originally for four columns footer, however as an alternative variant you could try to fill only three boxes for footer widgets, but four. Pay attention that if you do not put a widget let’s say to second footer box, for example, it will not be shown up exactly in second column in front end, so you do not need to fill the fourth one.
