    I have completed the directions for adding icons to the primary navigation menu on my site, and still the text is showing and not the icon.

    Hi elangford!

    Thanx for your feedback!
    Can you please give me some URL of your site?

    Also, which child theme you're using?

    There seem to be some fine differences here and there in the CSS so I have to figure it out.

    Can you double check or post the class you entered in the CSS class field?

    Thanx, Dave :)

    Hi
    I am having the same problem. I am using the prose child theme. This is kinda urgent. I have followed all the instructions to the letter, yet still just text. We are still in the setup phase of the site, so could provide you with information to see it outside the forums if that would help.
    Thanks

    @Hoppy4:

    Hi there!

    Sure to help you - please provide me some login credentials / test account for your site so I can figure out. If that's not possible please provide some screenshots of your WP menu admin site where you edited the social menu items.

    My contact is here: http://genesisthemes.de/en/contact/

    Hope that helps, Dave :)

    I'm having an issue where the icons show up normal in the nav, but not in the #home-top, the text shows up instead. What should I be looking for?

    @blieben:
    Hi there!
    That's default behavior, as the #home-top container/ID is NOT supported - it's also not stated in plugin description...
    The problem is: adding support to each and every widget area in child themes may be possible but would overbloat the CSS way too much. Also there are some differences in the IDs/classes between the official child themes (not to speak from any third-party stuff...), so it would be a overbloat/ performance/ support nightmare I guess...

    The only way you could achieve that, is by adding proper CSS rules to your current child theme. Look at the packaged stylesheet and try to get the principle. You may take one code block for a certain size, e.g. with the #nav and change that to #home-top or something.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    -Dave :)

    Hi Dave,

    Can I send you website info to get me started on that.

    Would I add a div to my theme css or just add to your plugin css?

    Thanks!

    Hi there!

    Sorry for the delay...!

    What you want to do won't require my plugin in the end: you'll add the images/icons/sprites to your child theme. And you add the CSS rules to your child. It's completely independent :)

    You just have to figure out your widget area CSS styling - there must be an ID or class which is the "main thing". Use that for your styling.

    You can look at my stylesheet how I've done it for each widget area and size.

    Just take your preferred size and then take a code block from the CSS file. I suggest to take a #nav section or the widget header or the widget footer area.

    Save this to local file and change all what's neccessary. Then add my images to your child theme - care for the paths and adjust them in your CSS rules.

    Then make some test - and hopefull it will work... :)

    Some example here:

    https://gist.github.com/2627648
    --> is for the PRL set, size 16
    --> example ID for home widget area "#home-widget-area"
    --> assumes that you copied my sprite for that size to the "images" folder of your child theme, that means copying the path "icon-sets/prl-sprites/prl-sprite-s16.png" from the plugin to your-child/images/-place-it-here...

    Hope that helps, Dave :)

    I'm using Prose also - can you elaborate on the folder issue?

    Thanks for a very nice plugin, by the way!

    @azjaleah:
    Thanks for the feedback! :)

    Sorry for the delay, but the folder re-naming issue was the following: the user did rename the plugin's folder, so the CSS file couldn't be loaded anymore. You should never ever rename plugin folders from plugins of the WordPress.org repository, for very good reasons!

    Hope that helps, Dave :)

    Hi, David,
    I found the problem. I am trying to use the SP icons. When I checked the plugin image folder, the images are empty. The file names are in there, but there are no pngs for the icons.

    I have actually created new icons to color match the site I'm building, but thought you might want to know this.
