You can change the theme color easily by changing $theme-color at your octopress/sass/base/_theme.scss.

The social icon at landing page can be removed or added by editing octopress/source/post/social_icon.html.

This theme used Font Awesome icons, so you can add any icon as you like from there.

This theme also disable Octopress default sidebar and footer. So to get this to work you have to customize your _config.yml .

sidebar: collapse

default_asides: [asides/recent_posts.html, ... , asides/footer_in_sidebar.html]
