Support » Theme: Customizr » social icon solution any time soon?

  • It’s just that I plan to open my new website this month in a couple of weeks time and was wondering if we can expect the social icon solution in this time or need to look for some other ways. Thanks!

  • Which social icon are you referring to? Can you give a link to a description?

    I’m talking about adding different social icons (or changing the existing ones to different ones). For example, I would like to add soundcloud and bandcamp links into social icon menu. It would also be enough if I could at least add similar icon to the soundcloud (“cloud”), but at the moment You can just change the icon , but the name remains the same (for instance, if I change google+ , it will still show “google+”, no matter what icon it is).

    This issue is also discussed here:

    Don’t know about the status of any changes, but you might want to look at my post from yesterday about the “Say What” plugin. It might change the text for you on the fly to give you a temporary solution at least.

    Thanks, that plug-in possibly could be a solution, but doesn’t seem to be working to me (showing some kind of error).

    What kind of error?

    When I try to add any changes in that text editor (in Tools section), it shows something like this:

    Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /home4/public_html/wp-content/plugins/say-what/say-what-list-table.class.php on line 82 and defined in /home4/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 992

    You can find the settings for the sm icons in the class-fire-utils.php file.

    $socials = array (
                  'tc_rss'            => 'feed',
                  'tc_twitter'        => 'twitter',
                  'tc_facebook'       => 'facebook',
                  'tc_google'         => 'google',
                  'tc_youtube'        => 'youtube',
                  'tc_pinterest'      => 'pinterest',
                  'tc_github'         => 'github',
                  'tc_dribbble'       => 'dribbble',
                  'tc_linkedin'       => 'linkedin'

    You can add whatever social media you want. This will then show up in your Cutomiz’it! Social Media options. You then just have to find the appropriate genericon code to use as the corresponding icon.

    these settings are now in parts/class-content-socials.php

    this is not working or am I missing something… I tried, for instance, change tc_dribble with something else as a test and nothing happend (no icon showed on customiz’er header or any different changes).

    You would need to change “tc_dribbble” (and corresponding text) in all places it appears. A quick search in one of my backups shows that it appears in:

    • class-content-socials.php
    • class-admin-customize.php
    • and of course in your <colour>.css, where you need to define a new icon.

    Hmm, but what exactly do I need to change, I mean, is “tc_dribble” my icon name or tc dribble stands for icon name, because, for instance , I want icon that is named “cloud” stand for my soundcloud page.

    What I got now is dribble icon with right link/name (follow me on soundcloud), BUT also a fatal error:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function check_capabilities() on a non-object in /home4/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-customize-control.php on line 160

    Any suggestions how to find that 160 line? I didn’t change anything on that file, but error shows when I try to edit customizer options.


    As mentioned in a follow-up post, the file(s) which the code I posted above has since changed after the update to ver3.0.10. @sionlanini and @electricfeet are correct as to which files now hold this code.

    As to the reason why the icon isn’t appearing is because the theme uses an font icon set. Can’t remember if it’s Genericons or something else off the top of my head, but not all SM icons are included in the theme. I added Etsy to my social media links but there isn’t an icon for Etsy so I had to do without.

    I’ll have to look into your fatal issue a bit more and get back to you with a more in-depth solution if I can.

    It’s Genericons. Character set here:

    ok.. bare with me here im new.. I’m looking to change the facebook icon to the full blue block “f” that is the most recognized symbol for facebook. So what would i have the add to my child theme to do that? i saw the genericon for the facebook symbol and it shows the code but where should i put it? lol

    Your question has nothing to do with this thread. Next time start a separate one, so others can benefit from the answer as well.
    Put this into your custom CSS Panel

    a.icon-facebook:before {
    	background-color: #3b5998;
    	border-radius: 2px;
    	color: white;
    	padding: 4px 0 0 2px;
    	position: relative;
    	text-shadow: none;
    	top: 4px;
    a.icon-facebook {
    	top: -4px;
