Support » Fixing WordPress » Making Sociable Icons “Brighter”?

  • hi there! I am setting up a new blog at http://www.theinnocentabroad, which is hosted for wordpress via bluehost. I installed the Sociable bookmark plugin, but there is one element about it I don’t like. The icons are “faded out” until you hover over them. I would like them to be “bright” all the time to make them more visible. Can anyone tell me how to disable the hover command to remove the “faded” effect, or whatever it is I need to do to remove it so the icons stand out?

  • Put this into your custom.css file:

    .sociable-hovers {
    opacity: 1;
    -moz-opacity: 1;
    filter: alpha(opacity=100);

    This overrides the socialable.css file, which is giving those icons opacity.

    Thank you. I tried that but no change. Anything specific I should know about adding to the custom.css?

    oh, solved it. I tried a slightly modified version of that code:
    .sociable-hovers {
    opacity: 1.0;
    -moz-opacity: 1.0;
    filter: alpha(opacity=100);

    And that fixed it. Thank you for the suggestion, it put me on the right track to finding what I was looking for. Much appreciated!

    i install the plugin and i am new in the wordpress can u plz tell me where is custom.css in the wordpress help me
    thank you

    Most likely you can find it in the Dashboard by going to Plugins, and then to Editor, to edit the plugin. If not, you’ll have to open the plugin files manually and edit the file there.

    This can easily be changed in the Sociable admin panel.

    Just check “disable Alpha Mask on share toolbar”

    reviewfrnds –
    I went to Plugins then clicked on Edit against the sociable plugin.
    I then chose sociable/sociable.css and changed the following to the values shown:

    .sociable-hovers {
    opacity: .9;
    -moz-opacity: .9;
    filter: alpha(opacity=90);

    That did the trick for me.
