Public Ticket #218593

Add Social Networks to shortcode

  • Max Mitschke

    It's possible, but you need to do a bit of custom tweaking. 

    First, you would need to get rid of the shortcode - use plain HTML text, because the shortcode is limited to what you see. 

    Second (i guess that we're talking about the footer/menu icons), you need to write this code in the proper place from the Theme Customizer:

            <a class="shr-btn-twitter" title="Join us on Twitter" href="#">
                <i class="icon-twitter"></i>
            <a class="shr-btn-facebook" title="Join us on Facebook" href="#">
                <i class="icon-facebook"></i>
            <a class="shr-btn-xing" title="Join us on Xing" href="#">
                <i class="fa fa-xing"></i>

    This is how the HTML of the social icons looks like. You'll notice that the first icons are normal (you can get the regular icon's code by using the shortcode and viewing the HTML source of your page), but the last icon is something added manually. It's a xing icon, and the icon is taken from this list:


    Use those class names to add custom icons.. These are the only ones available, but as you see, the list is a bit bigger than the default one.
