Social Icons and Custom CSS Disappeared after Update


I have just update wordpress and Unite to the latest versions.

I appear to have lost my Social icons, I also can not find the theme options, from which I would have gone to Theme Options > Social in older versions… Likewise, I did have my Telephone number under the Social Icons using the Custom CSS …

#social:after {
display: block;
font-size: 18px;
color: #80000;
font-weight: bold;
content: “Fone (61) 98117 6689”;

Am I being silly, or is there no longer a way of displaying social ICONS…

Thank you very much for your time

For reference my site can be found at



I have worked out how to get the Phone number back up via the menus options… Now I can not see where to add the details for the social icons.

Thank you

Hi Paul,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

In the latest version of theme all theme options are now moved to WordPress customizer that you can find in the admin area under Appearance >> Customize. All settings are still there but now you can tweak everything on a live preview. This change is made due to recommendation.

We have changed functionality of social links in the latest version of theme.

To create social icons follow the below steps :

  1. Create a menu like any other menu in the admin area of your site under Appearance -> Menus .
  2. Use the correct urls in the menu items, so for twitter it must be for facebook it must be Otherwise URLs won’t get recognized and you will get squares without icons.
  3. Set theme location for this menu as “Social Menu”

Best Regards,
