Support » Theme: Tiny Forge » Using Icon Webfonts

  • Resolved adambusha



    I am looking to add a social media section to my site with links for facebook and twitter.

    I have added a Text widget to the sidebar and included the Icon Webfont code you provided in your “How To” section of the child theme quick start guide.

    However, I am unable to see the icons. If I hover over them I get a tooltip with the title for each and I can even click the area where the icon should be and the link works. It’s just that I’m essentially clicking a white box on a white background.

    What am I missing?

    Thank you!

    Hi, there can be several things.

    If you got that sample code from the readme.txt, you could accidentally copy the ` (backtick) symbol(s), they where added only to make readme file somehow correspond to markdown format.

    If you got that sample code from my website, it includes a new code for the next version, where all web icon font classes start with “el-icon-…”. If that’s the case, I could send you a beta version of next iteration of theme.

    In any other case I would need to see live website to inspect the problem.

    I had copied the sample code from the website. I went back and removed the “el-” from the code (so it matches the readme.txt version) and now the icons are visible.

    Thank you!

    Sure 🙂

    But please remember, when new version will come out, you will have to add those “el-” prefixes, OK?

    And please share the fruits of your work! 🙂
