How Do I add the "Button" in BoomBar Like on the iThemes Site?

BoomBar allows you to create custom CSS for your bars, which is how the "button" in the iThemes BoomBar was created.

At the bottom of the bar's setting page, there is a Custom CSS box. There, it shows the ID for that particular bar.

#boom_bar-735 {
background: #df4d3f;
border-radius: 2px;
margin-left: 10px;
padding: 8px;
text-decoration: none;
}
 

How Do I Assign BoomBar to One Specific Page/Post?

BoomBar allows you to assign a different bar to each page or post.

When creating/editing your page or post, you'll see a box for BoomBar on the right of the page below your publish options.

Every bar that you've created will be in the drop down menu. The bar you select with override the bar that has been set to default for that particular page or post.
