Google Plus Icon On Header

7 posts in this topic

Hey everyone.

I would like to know if there is a way - not as complicated like coding - for adding GOOGLE PLUS social icon on the header next to facebook, twitter, youtube, linkedin and rss icons. I have the last edition of PlatformPro. I tried it looking for the image of "linkedin" (that I don't use) on the theme archives to change it for a google plus icon but I only found social icon for sharing images.

When I bought it I did it because pagelines team promise to be updating and sharing with the customers that through all the discussion on the forums did the feedback for what now is called "pagelines" a new more expensive framework and PlatformPro users have to pay for it, just because the name changed.

Now PlatformPro doesn't have important updatings like Google Plus icon. That's Sad, not for the customer but for the trust every person put on the creators at the beginning of the project. If you are creating a new framework please be sure the "old" one to be updated at least on basic stuff like new international social networks, I understand you need to produce money but keep the honor and human behavior, that one you started with.

Thank you for your help and I am sorry for complaining.

I believe it will require some CSS to get this social icon in line with the others. Can you post your site's link so we can troubleshoot for you, please?

Hi there, the only way that I'm aware to do this is via a hook. An example for inserting a Hook into Platform Pro can be found here http://www.pagelines.com/docs/base-child-theme this is the same process for both Platform Pro and for the new Pagelines Framework, which comes with five sharing icons as standard.

At this point in time, anything above will need to be added manually. The inclusion of additional icons is something we will put forward as an idea for future editions.

Hi,

Platform Pro was released over two years ago and as far as I am aware, there was no such service called Google+ at that time. Platform Pro has received numerous updates during its life span. However, Platform Pro is now considered a legacy theme and will not receive any further updates.

If you wish to have the Google+ social media icon, you can do so like James suggested and use a hook. However, I recommend you upgrade to PageLines Framework, if you wish to do so, contact our helpdesk and they will be able to assist you.

hello at pagelines dot com

Also, PageLines Framework isn't a simple name change from Platform Pro. The two are completely separate products and the only thing they have in common, is that they were both created by PageLines.

Thank you all for answering and clarifications.

I found an easy way to set it. since I don't use LinkedIn y replace that icon on image at wp-content>themes>platformpro>images>sprite-socialicons.png it only needs to have the next icon (youtube) also activated. Check it on http://journal.es.holisticafact.com/ it just need more design to look like the others.

      Should be a simple answer but not sure why its not doing this.  I have a child theme installed on pagelines 5 that has a hook so it will write over the theme css. Strange is that when I am on the frontend the code works but in the dashboard your theme takes over my code and its no where to be found. See examples attachments

      Hello,
      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      Hi guys,
      It seems like the H1 tag in the Pagelines 5 framework is missing the entry-title tag. Google Search Console complains about that and it seems like it needs to be fixed in the theme. Based on another thread, this looks like a known issue but I haven't seen any updates from the framework team.
      Any indication of what the status on this issue is?
      The site in question that I have that issue with is michaelkummer.com.
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hello,
      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…
