change branding social icons image file in child theme and add rel="nofollow"branding icon child theme seo
Posted 03 October 2012 - 11:46 AM
How do I changed the social icon images in the branding section while using child theme? I have uploaded new png files to replace old ones to use for other social networks but when updating the theme today it changed back to the default icons, so how do I implement this using child theme so I dont get overwritten when updating themes next time?
Also, is there a way to add rel="nofollow" to the social icon links and rss links? I believe this is an important SEO issue.

I copied the entire branding folder to the child theme inside the sections folder but seems like it's still loading from parent theme, the sections.php is also loading from parent theme. Below is the folder structure, the linkedin.png is actually another social site icon. Thanks!

When I refresh my test site the changes have taken place -
Therefore, you have not created your child theme correctly, you're as far as I can see missing the setup.php file and a few other less important ones.

There is a free base child theme in the PageLines store, use this one instead of creating on based on the Wordpress guide.
