Social icons in footer flush right?

Recommended Posts


I wanted to add the social icons in my footer and can't figure out how to make it work. I found an earlier post with some code, which i put into a full width sidebar but it didn't seem to work (see attachment) 


Here's the code I used: 

<section class="section-branding"><div class="texture"><div class="content"><div class="content-pad"><div class="branding_wrap fix"><div class="<span class="searchlite">icons</span>" style="bottom: 12px; right: 1px;">

<a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Michelle-Kim-Studio/592412917441733" class="facebooklink"><img src="http://YOURURL.com/wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections/branding/facebook.png" alt="Facebook"/></a>

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(&#39;.<span class="searchlite">icons</span> a&#39;).hover(function(){ jQuery(this).fadeTo(&#39;fast&#39;, 1); },function(){ jQuery(this).fadeTo(&#39;fast&#39;, 0.5);});


Is there any other way to do this?

Have you tried using the footer widgets in WordPress instead of custom code?

Just to make sure; your code added does include &#39; as in the pasted example?


The problem with &#39; is that it is actually a single quote or apostrophe.  If you copy from a source that shows the code for the mark, then it will break. You'd need to include the actual mark.


This   &#39;fast&#39;  is supposed to be 'fast'

fixed it and still no luck. I think I'll have to forego the nice hover effects and put a simple image link : (

Check the hover effect on the social icons on the right of my header in this link: http://www.epicurus.com/members


Let me know if that's the sort of thing you want.  Any images may be used.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      The social icons within the Sitemap Footer section plugin are not longer showing on screen. Site details will be sent via email separately.
      WordPress - 4.7.2
      Pagelines Framework Version 5.0.97
      Platform 5 Version - 5.1.6
      Section Sitemap Footer version - 5.0.4.
      All other plugins deactivated.

      OK - folks - back with another nit... The "back to top" link works - BUT - it's only active (i.e. clickable with the associated action following) when the mouse-over hovers over the footer area of the page. I did a quick change of the z-depth (to -1) and nothing made a difference. Any thoughts on how to make the *entire* back-to-top icon hover-able/actionable? Thanks!

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      site with calendar :
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(

      Hi guys,
      I have been unsuccessfully trying to get my 3-column widgetized footer aligned centered. The widget section itself is aligned left because the alignment appears to be controller the widget's content only. The container that contains the widget section is aligned centered. I have chosen a 3 column layout and I added 3 widgets, assuming they would be aligned centered.
      Any idea of what I may be doing wrong?
