Writing my CV in the moderncv package, I was caught between the classic style for the main body, and banking style for the header/title. I'm not sure how to merge the two formats. Also on the Banking Style header I would like to add an additional item for LinkedIn.

When looking through other questions I saw recommendations to add an MWE, but I'm not sure how to do this either seeing as I'm fairly new to using LaTeX. I can add it if someone can point me in the right direction.

Any help is appreciated.

You can take from moderncvstylebanking.sty the parts in charge of formatting the title and use them in your .tex file with the casual style; to add your LinkedIn information you can use \social[linkedin]{john.doe}:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{blue}
\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}

\makeatletter
