Adding More Custom Social Media Icons

  1. Hello!

    I have custom social media icons listed at the bottom of my site. The tricky part is that I have another 3 or 4 I'd like to add but my template/widget doesn't seem to want to load them. Is there any way to add more?

    Thanks for your help - very much appreciated.

    My website is http://www.ohksocial.com and my theme is wu wei

    The blog I need help with is ohksocial.com.

  2. hello? any help would be appreciated thanks.

  3. You probably can't on wordpress.com

  4. I don't know that theme per se: are the share buttons in the Theme Options? You can certainly add more if you have the Custom Design upgrade, though you might need to shrink them so they all fit in the space.

  5. No Theme Option: just images in a text widget. So you can add as many as you like.

    Raincoaster suggested this 2 or 3 years ago and I've been using it at the end of all my posts ever since: social bookmarking links.

  7. If the text widget accept html here's what I use on my .org widget text area


    <img src="#2"
    onmouseover="this.src='#3'"
    onmouseout="#2'" />

    This lets you have two images for each social media icon, one when the mouse is not over the image/link and one when you hover over the image/link. On my site they go from black and white to color when you hover over them.

    Us that for how many ever social media icons you want.
    Replace:
    #1 with link to social media url
    #2 with the image url you want when the mouse isn't over the link
    #3 with the image url you want when the mouse hovers over link

    If you want more social media icons just copy paste the html for as many buttons you want.

    If you don't want the 'hover' affect, just remove onmouseover and onmouseout from the img tag

    Hope this helps

  8. woops, messed up the code:

    Here it is:

    <a href="#1"><br /> <img src="#2"<br /> onmouseover="#3'"<br /> onmouseout="#2'" /><br /> </a>

    and BTW, you can replace the alt="#" with whatever

  9. hmmm. Don't know why it keeps linking, so I'll use words to explain

    use a tag, and close it </a ... after

  10. thank you thank you all!

  11. Actually, you ought to be able to add virtually any sharing service very easily: http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/#adding-your-own-service

  12. Oops! I see now that this is about adding sharing icons in text widgets. Sorry :(
