    Social Icons are clickable but don’t appear on homepage ONLY
    by Nick Cernis
    Hi, @harperjameson.

    I see the icons in your footer under “Follow Harper” on Chrome/Firefox/Safari (Mac) and in Mobile Safari (iPhone):

    One thing you can check:

    – Some ad blockers can disable social media elements. If you’re using a blocker of any kind on desktop or phone, it’s worth disabling it temporarily.

    Otherwise, the next time they disappear for you on desktop, please could you open your browser console and take a screenshot of any messages you see there? You can then create a new topic with a link to the screenshot (uploaded to or similar). This will sometimes reveal the issue causing them not to load.
    I’m not running any ad blockers and the problem is still occurring both on my PC laptop and my iPhone in Safari browser. Per the above advice, I’m beginning this thread hoping someone can tell me why my social media icons disappear from the homepage of my website.

    Here are the screenshots I took from my browser console. Thank you for your help!

    Thanks for following up about this, @harperjameson.

    The screenshots of the console at appear to be from the “how do I open a console” Webmasters tab.

    To debug this further, we’d need the screenshots of the console when the tab containing your site is in focus.

    (Each tab will have different console messages, so you’ll need to switch to the tab containing your site before taking your screenshots.)

    Just to follow up, I do see the icons in Chrome on the home page after the entire page finishes loading.
