social media icons being silly (5 posts)

    I have two questions which I will make seperate posts for... this one being the most silliest.
    If you go to my page
    look at the right hand side.

    You will see two sets of social icons. One set is purple and horizontal and the other is colorful and vertical.

    I LOVE the colorful ones, but for some reason using this theme I am they stack vertically. In other themes they are horizontal.

    I dont like the purple ones or any other plugin that I have found yet.

    Do you have suggestions as to what code is freaking those icons out? I am not good with CSS etc, but I am try to look but I dont even know what css file to start looking under.

    Try using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS work.

    As a last resort i may try that, but thats just learning a whole nother program, when this should be something fairly simple to learn.

    Its got to be in the code somewhere I just dont know where to look. :(

    In the meantime I took out the two purple ones and left the ones i want in there. Now i just need them to be horizontal, not vertical.

    uggg, is there no edit on these pages? I moved my site from the wordpress directory to my root directory, so now my site is here instead

    Using the Firebug extension for the Firefox web browser isn't "learning a whole nother program". It's actually one of the easiest ways to understand how CSS rules are impacting a specific element on a site. (If you use Google Chrome browser, you could use the "Chrome Developer Tools" extension for the same purpose.)

    Basic CSS really isn't the purpose of the WordPress support forums. Esmi's suggestion to use Firefox/Firebug is the standard "teach a man to fish" response to such questions.

    If you need more basic CSS help, I would try a CSS forum.
