How can i hide an icon?

To hide an icon, Just dont give any value for that button link.. it will automatically gets hiden.

Why the floating social media icon is not displaying on my page even if i made all properly?

Our Plugin Uses Hooks to integrate the supported javascripts styles and html to the theme. So Make sure your theme footer.php have <?php wp_footer(); ?> and header.php have <?php wp_head(); ?> , Most of all the plugins work with the support of this code and if this is not present on your theme.. Its your themes mistake..

How can i integrate the **<?php wp_footer(); ?>** and **<?php wp_head(); ?>** to my theme if it is not present on my theme?

It can be easily done.. Just to go Theme Editor which is under appearance and select footer.php and add <?php wp_footer(); ?> before the closing body tag which is and then go and edit header.php and add <?php wp_head(); ?> just before the closing head tag which is

Can i disable the automated integration and place where ever i want?

Yes, You can.. Just to go "Acx Social icons" Menu which is in left side on wp-admin and in that page you will find "Display Mode" option. Select it to Manual. But then there will be no animation but you can Use Our Shortcode or PHP Code to display the social media icons anywhere you want.

What are the shortcode and php code that will display this social media icon?

You can use the shortcode [DISPLAY_ACURAX_ICONS] in any post or page or even in your custom post types. You can also use <?php DISPLAY_ACURAX_ICONS(); ?> anywhere in the theme files to show this icons.(But note that manual icons display will not have the animation

Can i have more than one php or shortcode to display the social media icon ?

Yes, You can have as many shortcode or php code to display the social media icons

Can i override the css styles of each social media icon set?

Yes, each of the shortcode or php generated social media icon set is having unique css class and it help you to define specific style for each social media icon set.

Can i customize the shortcode to show social media icons with different icon design and size?

Yes, You can use shortcode to display icon and set social media icon size,what ever you want which is supported by the plugin. You can override the global icon theme and size configuration using some attributes on shortcode.

As you know we have given icon themes, Numbers to identify. Right now we have themes like, 1,2,3,4....

If you want to show icons with Theme # 5, You can use the shortcode [DISPLAY_ACURAX_ICONS theme="5"] Here we using the attribute "theme" to define the theme number (Make sure you use the available theme numbers, You can see the theme numbers on plugin settings page)

If you want to show the icons with a custom size 50px.. you can use the shortcode [DISPLAY_ACURAX_ICONS size="50"] Here we using the attribute "size" to define the icon size (Make Sure you specifying size which is not more than "55" which is the maximum icon support of this plugin, DO NOT ADD px, Just Add the Size in Numerical)

So if you use a shortcode [DISPLAY_ACURAX_ICONS theme="10" size="45"] It will show the Social Media Icon with Icon Theme 10 and Icon size will be 45px width and height.

Why are my social media icons show vertically?

Floating Social Media Icon displays social media icons with its own style, but in some cases, some theme css styles can override the styles of the social media icons generated by floating social media icon and thats what causing the issue.

Can i fix the social media vertical align issue?

Depending on the theme, the issue can happen, for this case, we have added a theme conflict fix in misc page, please enable it and take a look.

Can i have my own social icons instead of the default one?

Possible, Its an advanced option, you just needs to upload your social icons to wp-contents/plugins/floating-social-media-icon/images/themes/ANY THEME NUMBER, replace the current icons with your icons in same name, and then pick that theme number as the theme for the icons and it will load that new social icons.Keep in mind that, when you update the plugin, the custom icon uploaded will go, so always do this same process after you update the plugin.

How can i use the plugin widgets?

Plugin Support Social Media Widget with almost same features of the shortcodes, You can have many number of widgets where on each widget you can configure the Social Media Icons size and Icon Design/Style.

To add a widget to your sidebar.. you theme must support sidebars. Go to Appearance >> Widgets,to add "Acx Social Icons" widget to your sidebar.

There are a lot of other social icons plugins, but why this plugin?

But in our case we choosen the must to have icons and made it perfect animation and position styling.. More icons on website make it look bad.. So use the essentials with sexy display.
