    Is there a way to add other Social Media Icons to the list at the top. We see the code under the Basic Setting Tab under Theme options.

    [social_area][social icon=”facebook” link=”#”][social icon=”twitter” link=”#”][social icon=”google-plus” link=”#”][social icon=”linkedin” link=”#”][social icon=”instagram” link=”#”][/social_area]

    We want to be able swap out some items and add Houzz (fa-houzz), Pinterest (fa-pinterest), and Yelp (fa-yelp ), for example.

    Is that possible?

    I tried that and save the options (both with and without the actual Houzz link replacing the hashtag.

    [social_area]
    [social icon=”houzz” link=”#”]
    [social icon=”facebook” link=”#”]
    [social icon=”twitter” link=”#”]
    [social icon=”linkedin” link=”#”]
    [social icon=”instagram” link=”#”]
    [/social_area]

    But it didn’t work. Am I doing something wrong?

    The Beta site that is under construction can be seen at http://www.aibd.org/mobile/.

    The current code we have under the ‘Header Top Social icon’ section in the Theme Options is:

    [social_area][social icon=”houzz” link=”#”][social icon=”facebook” link=”#”][social icon=”twitter” link=”#”][social icon=”google-plus” link=”#”][social icon=”linkedin” link=”#”][social icon=”instagram” link=”#”][/social_area]

    Hi Shri,

    The URL is http://www.aibd.org/mobile

    Why is the WordPress Admin needed? Is there not a more secure way to resolve this issue?

    The verbatim code that we have put is:

    [social_area][social icon=”houzz” link=”#”][social icon=”facebook” link=”#”][social icon=”twitter” link=”#”][social icon=”google-plus” link=”#”][social icon=”linkedin” link=”#”][social icon=”instagram” link=”#”][/social_area]

    Are you not able to look at that and see what is wrong?

    Thanks

    All you need to do is replace the # within the double quotes with the actual URL so for example our facebook URL is https://www.facebook.com/sktwordpressthemes

    Similarly add your full actual URLs replacing the #

    Someone asked how to link WhatsApp kindly check in this website: http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icons/

    All you need to do is add this icon: whatsapp with the line of code within the actual code.

    here is the code again:

    [social_area][social icon=”houzz” link=”#”][social icon=”facebook” link=”#”][social icon=”twitter” link=”#”][social icon=”google-plus” link=”#”][social icon=”linkedin” link=”#”][social icon=”instagram” link=”#”][/social_area]

    Adding WhatsApp would mean:

    [social_area][social icon=”houzz” link=”#”][social icon=”whatsapp” link=”#”][social icon=”facebook” link=”#”][social icon=”twitter” link=”#”][social icon=”google-plus” link=”#”][social icon=”linkedin” link=”#”][social icon=”instagram” link=”#”][/social_area]

    Make sure not to copy codes from forum as they do not keep the inverted commas intact. Take it from the section area or from documentation area.

    Regards,
    Shri

    You can use a different plugin for social icons then in case you don’t want our shortcode.

    Find any suitable plugin in WordPress.org/plugins which suits your requirement of icons.

    Shri
