Social icons showing up 1.5x

Recommended Posts


Well I'm just a question-asking fool this week!


FYI- my site is in maintenance mode.


So, I needed to use hooks to add change/add social icons. I didn't have the brain space to figure out hooks, so I bought the hooker plugin. I added the following html to pagelines_before_branding_icons hook:

<div class="icons" style="bottom: 12px; right: 1px;">
<a class="facebooklink" href="https://www.facebook.com/khadijaannette"target="_blank">
<img alt="Facebook" src="http://khadija-annette.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/icons/facebook.png">
<a class="pinterestlink" href="http://pinterest.com/khadijaannette/" target="_blank">
<img alt="Pinterest" src="http://khadija-annette.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/icons/pinterest.png">
<a class="twitterlink" href="https://twitter.com/KhadijaAnnette" target="_blank"style="opacity: 0.5;">
<img alt="Twitter" src="http://khadija-annette.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/icons/twitter.png">
<a class="tumblrlink" href="http://tumblr.com/khadijaannette/" target="_blank">

<a class="linkedinlink" href="http://www.linkedin.com/in/khadijaoconnell"target="_blank">

<a class="emailink" href="mailto:[email protected]/" target="_blank">
<img alt="Email" src="http://khadija-annette.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/icons/email.png">
<a class="rsslink" href="http://khadija-annette.com/feed/" target="_blank"style="opacity: 0.5;">
<img alt="RSS" src="http://khadija-annette.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/icons/rss.png">

The icons are great and lined up nicely and exactly where they are supposed to be except... 4 of them are repeated on the left side of the page above my fixednav bar. What in the world is going on??


Also, I just noticed that the code for the errant icons actually matches the Pagelines code for the included social icons that you edit in Site Options. WHY? What in the world did I do wrong this time?


***UPDATE*** Weird freaking other thing happened in sync with the extra icons- my logo is no greyed out or has some opacity applied when I'm not hovering on it. This is new. I didn't do this. Well, I obviously did it but I don't know how. Oh god, make it end.

Hi there, there's nothing in the html code that duplicates, it works fine when i pasted into a post to test. But you have forgotten to close the div tag at the end.

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.

      We had a very nice shortcodes library and hooker in the previous version of the platform. But in the version 5 they are missing. 
      So are you going to improve it again in future or no they are not supported anymore? 
      and one more question, what do you suggest for sharing bar which we had in DMS2 ?
      Thanks for your effort

      Hi DMS team,
      Please help out on how to add Post tags to the bottom of each post. Tried looking at the hooks tutorials but not sure what to do here.
      Thanks a lot.

      I just tried to figure out how to use Lax in combination with Post Thumbnails the following way: instead of showing the Featured Image on top of the content section I would like to have a Lax section above the content which loads for each post the featured image. To do so it seems there should be some kind of word press hook support necessary (not ready yet)? Or did I miss something?

      We add phone number to the top right of sites using hooker (example http://hub.theasap.org.uk/) but it's not responsive. Is there a better way to add here, which would be responsive?
