Social icons not showing inline

Recommended Posts


Hi support team,


I have just followed the guide on this page: http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/creating-a-branding-area, to add few social icons to the top area of the site I'm working on.


You can have a look of the result: http://toddwalters.net/


As per the guide on font awesome page of DMS, the social icons are still showing with bullets one below another rather than sideways.


Yes, I do have pasted the custom CSS code to DMS toolbar Custom Code section, but no use.


Any suggestions?

You should be wrapping the html <a href="#" target="_blank"><i class="icon icon-facebook icon-2x"></i></a> like this:



rather than <br>, which is a soft return and hence stacked

Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

Do as GetMeWebDesign suggested. However, if you haven't added these breaks, then its likely WordPress doing it's magic. Therefore, you will need to remove all white space between your code.


For example, if you have this:








You will need to remove the white space so it looks like this:

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      I used the following code in a TextBox:  <a href="http://bookpage.html">BOOK NOW</a> <i class="fa fa-cart-arrow-down fa-lg"></i>
      But the fa icons are not showing up next to the BOOK NOW text in the fixed top right corner. See website: http://campmoonrise.nl/book-now/
      See code screenshot....

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I have tryed to uses the existing solution, that I have found in the forum
      I changed the colours of my nav (simple nav) and the hover effect (a. hover).
      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
      I want it to be black when active.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
