How do I add Global Nav item?

I'm the Canvas admin for our institution and I've been requested to add a link to our Global navigation (left side nav bar). What I'm finding so far is information on how to fully customize it but I don't need all that, we just want to add one extra icon that links out to a website. Can anyone point me in the right direction for the css code to append my existing theme files? Thanks!

We would need to update both the browser-based & mobile-based css files. Thanks!

Hi cbirdsong

Here's one I recently wrote to support multiple icon types. It works in the global nav, but not the new responsive navigation menu (hamburger menu), or the mobile applications.

The code you would need to add to your themes javascript is here,

Please let me know if you have any questions.
