Assistance on finishing custom social media icon hook

Recommended Posts

illinimatt81

I added the following hook to the pagelines customize plugin functions.php after following this post in the forum: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/22659-change-social-website-icons

add_action('pagelines_inside_top_branding', 'my_unique_icons');

// function name

function my_unique_icons(){

?>

<div class="my_unique_icons"><a href="http://itunes.apple....551103126"><img src="http://runneracademy...ial24.png"></a>

</div>

<?php }

// end function

I also added the following to my custom CSS

#branding .my_unique_icons {

float: right;

z-index: 10;

position: relative;

}

Two issues I am trying to resolve.

1) How do I get it positioned to the left of the Google + Social Icon? Currently it is at the top left of the header.

2) I have 2 versions of the icon one for mouseover and one for non-mouseover. How do I reference these to have the same effect as the other social media icons?

Hi, one question

Do you want to аdd the icon in the text widget in footer?

If it is right, you can add a HTML on it.

Hi there, which browser are you using? I can't see any duplicate on hover (i'm using firefox)

You can align next to the other icons using the following css

#branding .my_unique_icons {

    right: 160px;

    top: 106px;

}


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

I have implemented this code and now the iTunes logo is aligned correctly and the mouseover is working as it should. However the Google + icon is now below the iTunes logo almost off the screen. Any ideas?

Hi there, to move the icon so it's not pushing the other item down you'll need to align it with css. Please try the following, let us know if this works for you. The should show up link this

.my_unique_icons

{

float: left;

margin-left: -25px;

opacity: 0.5;

}

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
