Support » Plugin: Simple Social Icons » Custom color css not working

  • Hi.

    I’m not able to get my custom colors to work in the widget.

    I can set some colors, but when I inspect my code, it sets a class “simple-social-icons-3” for the widget instance. However, (see below), the inline css it writes into the footer uses an ID. I don’t understand what is going on.

    I’m using version 3.0.1.

    From code inspector:

    <section class="widget simple-social-icons-3 simple-social-icons"><h3>Connect with Us</h3><ul class="alignleft"><li...

    <style type="text/css" media="screen"> #simple-social-icons-3 ul li a, #simple-social-icons-3 ul li a:hover

  • Hi there!

    Have you tried disabling all other plugins to check for a plugin conflict? If that does not help can you send a link to your site so we can take a closer look, please?

    I only have the site in a local development environment, so I can’t send you a link. But I will try disabling plugins.

    However, without disabling plugins, can you tell me how it’s supposed to work? It appears as if I can set some colors in the admin/widgets for the instance of the icons and it will write a class simple-social-icons-3 and also a small section of inline css at the bottom of the page. In the inline css it uses an ID #simple-social-icons-3. I don’t understand why it’s creating the icons with a class and using an ID in the css. I don’t know how this could be due to a plugin conflict.

    Can you briefly explain if I understand the concept and/or how the css is supposed to be working?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi there,

    I am very sorry for any confusion and for missing your reply.

    We append the widget number so that different SSI widgets can have different styling.

    Thank you and enjoy your day!
