Pinterest in Business Branding?

Best Answer ellenmva , 30 May 2014 - 09:57 PM

@radroz I am so sorry...I image you really do need those icons since I have failed to get back to you.

 

There is a hook to add more icons, here is the code to add a few extra icons before the ones in business branding (I found a bug where you should be able to put them after the icons but not working -- will be fixing and pushing update over weekend).

 
add_filter( 'bb_branding_icons_start', 'additional_social_icons' );
		function additional_social_icons( ) {

		?>
	       <a href="#" target="_blank"><i class="icon icon-dribbble"></i></a>
	       <a href="#" target="_blank"><i class="icon icon-instagram"></i></a>
	       <a href="#" target="_blank"><i class="icon icon-pinterest"></i></a>
		<?php

	}

Replace the href="#" with href="social-network-url" for each one.

 

I am working on making it so that you can add your own networks and reorder them in Business Branding. Basically I am reworking Business Branding to take better advantage of DMS, it just keeps getting pushed aside. Will try to get you something soon, hopefully in the next week or two. Till then, the above code will work and when I push the update this weekend you will be able to use the bb_branding_icons_end hook in place of bb_branding_icons_start.

 

Again, sorry for the delay.

Hey Ellen, what would it take to add Pinterest to the Business Branding options?

Goodie! Would it be possible in a future update to have an option for adding other buttons? It'll help my clients out if we don't have to hard-code them.

You can easily promote  your business on pinterest via pins. Pinterst is quite easy to use and a better place to promote your brand.

Okay, I reallllyyyy need to add other social icons to the business branding section in DMS2. The earlier topic does not apply, apparently. @ellenmva, is there a hook I need to look for?

@radroz I added the Pinterest icon finally so that is within Business Branding now. Also, I fixed the hook so you can add your additional icons after the Business Branding ones too. You should see the update in your wp-admin.

 

The action then would be

 
add_filter( 'bb_branding_icons_end', 'additional_social_icons' );

Houzz, which I love, has submitted a request to Font Awesome to have their icon added. As I said I am redoing Business Branding so that it will be easier to add your own networks and have them in your own order. Wish me luck!

I can just create a CSS tag for the Houzz icon for the time being, and use images instead of icons. What would be the best code for that?
