Genesis Social Profiles Menu

This plugin adds a stylesheet for social profile icons for the WordPress custom menu - recommended for the use with Genesis Framework child themes.

How Do I Actually Add These Special CSS Classes and Where?

Just go to the "Menus" settings page in WordPress, then click the "Sreen Options" tab in the top right corner (below the toolbar) and there just activate the check boxes for "Custom Links", "Link Target" and "CSS Classes". After that you have access to the appropriate fields/drop downs for each and every menu items you'll add or edit. (This is then for ALL menu items not only for the social ones you might add... :) -> Just see the first sreenshot at the "Screenshots" page here -- direct link to large view screenshot...

Could I use this plugin also with another theme/framework?

Good question but unfortunately this is no possible and not recommended. I've built in a theme check function so it's only useable with the Genesis Framework and its child themes. The reason for that is simple because the icons stylesheet references a lot of unique Genesis CSS IDs and classes so it will be nearly unuseable with other themes. However, you might have a look at the included stylesheet and maybe got inspired for your own stylesheet for your custom theme or even doing your own plugin with this...
