Hi there, I've just seen this thread when searching for something else which Ellen's responded to previously which might help

 

http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/27129-adding-skype-chat-button-next-to-social-icons/


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.

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.

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.

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?

      My client has just flagged up a problem with the Pinterest share button. When they click it on any of theor blog entries Pinterest comes back with the following error:
      Parameter 'image_url' (value http:) is not a valid URL format.
      I've checked this myself and it does indeed happen. The post has a featured image, these are using standard Pagelines DMS sections and the the site is totally up to date.
      The page is here: http://www.technicasolutions.co.uk/5-questions-to-ask-your-prospective-new-it-support-company/
      Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

      Hi,
      I want to add Facebook and Instagram follow buttons in the main text of my website, as I'm not using sidebars.
      Here's the website: rivendellwriterscolony.org - I'd like to place them below the quotation and above the boxes.
      (Actually, I'd like to place them top right, but I don't think that's possible.)
      Any suggestions for getting the code for this?
      Thanks!

      Hello All,
       
      My question is.. How do I add more social icons using the Navi section in Mobile Menu mode?
       
      The only two that show up are the Facebook and Twitter, from the information you fill out in the Site Setting > Social & Local.
       
      Please review site for example: www.napait.com
       
      I would like to be able to add custom icons such as other social and phone, map, contact icons after these social icons in the mobile menu. Basically want to move the phone icon into the social icons bar. Having looked for the right hook using Hooker plugin I still have been unsuccessful.
       
      Thank you in advance.

      The site's url  is delhirealestateguy.com . Would appreciate if someone can take a look and advice. Regards,

      Looking to add text links directly below the primary logo on the Business Branding section, is this possible using hooks?
      Thank you.
