    Hi, all.

    I’m looking to add a Facebook & Google+ icon in my footer in the same format as my current ones.

    My website came designed with a Twitter & LinkedIn icon (although I cannot figure out how I can add more. I assume it was added by a plugin, but I am unable to find the plugin that the designer used)

    How should I proceed with this?

    Thank you in advance 🙂

  • This would be controlled by your theme. What theme are you using? Where did you download it from? Your best option in these situations is usually to identify your theme’s author and ask them for assistance.

    The code for your social icons is

    <div class="social-icons text-left">
    
      <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/metropolis-surveyors-llp-24a5934a/" target="_blank"><i class="fa fa-linkedin-square"></i></a>
    
       <a href="https://twitter.com/Metropolis_surv" target="_blank"><i class="fa fa-twitter-square"></i></a>
    
    </div>

    The classes fa fa-linkedin-square and fa-twitter-square indicate the use of FontAwesome.

    I don’t know how the icons are generated but just for testing you can use the following to create a link to facebook.

    <a href="YOUR_PAGE_LINK_GOES_HERE" target="_blank"><i class="fa fa-facebook-square"></i></a>

    and for Google+

    <a href="YOUR_PAGE_LINK_GOES_HERE" target="_blank"><i class="fa fa-google-plus-square"></i></a>

    And see of that is what you want to display.
