Can't display facebook and other social media icons in social media widget
I am using the Colinear theme, premium version. When I add the social media widget to the footer or sidebar, the only icons I can display are the linkedin and pinterest icons. The facebook, twitter and youtube icons will not appear. Any solutions for this?
The blog I need help with is campeastadventures.com.
Can you make a private post with links to each of those pages? We can help you get it set up. Or just contact us here:
Hi. I’m using the Colinear theme in wordpress.com through the ecommerce business plan. The website address is http://www.wordpress.campeastadventures.com. I’ve added a social media widget in footer 2 which is present on each page of the website. I have filled in usernames for each social media icon but only the pinterest and linkedin icons appear. I’ve tried entering the username (email address) I use to sign into the (facebook) account. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Can you send us links to your Twitter Profile, LinkedIn profile, and Facebook page or profile? You can send them here or you can include them in a private post.
I’m using these facebook profiles for testing purposes only. I’ll switch over when the website is finished.
Facebook profile: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003276239172
Just beneath your profile picture on LinkedIn, you should have a link. Can you copy that?
The other services will have similar links. Typing in the display name won’t work, unfortunately, and the links will break.
I was able to deduce your Twitter username and add that, though, so that one works now.
I have the same problem :(
I found the url you referred to on linkedin, but for the others, the only id number I could find is the profile url. These three are the most important social media icons I need.
Facebook: (email redacted) (not sure if thats the id number you need.??)
Sorry about that. I added my facebook email address but it didn’t appear for some reason. Where do I find the facebook id number you need?
I also need the pinterest icon, not flickr. My profile url is http://www.pinterest.com/markusw33
@markusw359, you’ll want to put in usernames rather than full URLs. I’ve fixed the ones I could. Please find out your username-based-URL from Facebook, then copy just that name into the field. You will also want to do the same for your Youtube channel.
I have fixed the ones for LinkedIn and Twitter so you won’t want to change those again.
@bfox, are you using usernames rather than urls?
If so and you’re still having trouble, let us know which site you need help with.
Hello again. Still not working. I’ve setup a facebook username, added it to the widget info and the facebook icon doesn’t appear. Do you have a private email address so we can sort this out?
