How can i hide a social media icon that i not using?

To hide a social media icon, Just don’t give any value for that icon link.. it will automatically gets hidden.

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 </body> and then go and edit header.php and add <?php wp_head(); ?> just before the closing head tag which is </head>

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 choose any social media icon for widget?

You can choose social media icon style, size, for each widget configuration so that you can have different style of icon in sidebar or footer widgets.

How can i hide a social media icon from the list?

If you want to hide a particular social media icon, you just make the configuration field for that social media service blank and it will not be shown.

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″ align=”left”]
It will show the Social Media Icon with Icon Theme 10 and Icon size will be 45px width and height and it aligns to left.

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?

Sorry, its only possible in our premium version, you can have unlimited number of extra icons in our premium version and you can even link icons to your website pages or anywhere.

How can i use the plugin widgets to display social media icons?

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.

Can i have add an icon to connect to a page in our website?

Yes, possible, but only in our premium version, You can have unlimited number of extra icons which links to anywhere you need.

If i update the floating social media icon plugin, will it change any settings or configuration?

Normally, there is no such cases, We always release updates which will not change any of your social media plugin configuration or settings, but in some rare cases, it may needed, but still it will be only done after your confirmation.

How Many Social Media Widget Can i use?

Plugin Support More than one instance of Social Media Widgets, SO you can use as many as widget on your sidebars.

How can i help the development of this plugin?

Acurax Provide Most of all the wordpress related services like website design and development including plugin development, theme design and coding, Graphics Design like header image designing etc. we can do your projects. So here you get what u needs to get done and we getting business so a part of that can be used for the time that we spend to develop plugins like this

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

Most of all the social media plugins have more and more options which is only easily understandable by advanced users, those have a bunch of social media profile integrations. But in our case we chosen the must to have icons and made it perfect animation and position styling.. More icons on website make destroy your website look.. So use the essentials with sexy display.

Can i add my own icons for the social media profiles?

Sorry, Its only available in our premium version.

After Updating social media Plugin, Icons are not showing. why?

You need to visit the plugin settings page once after upgrading to complete the update process.Only after that it will show the icons.

My floating icons are not floating, how can i resolve it?

We use wordpress hooks to place the flying icons code, and in some themes, the wp_footer hooks may be called within some div or html elements and it can cause this issue, You can try enabling the floating fly fix at our misc page, or contact our support for a one to one issue resolution.
