Hi @vorpal,

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

Yes you can add more custom social icons by developing CSS code as described in the following reply.

In the sparkling theme you can use the code shared in the above reply by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of the latest version of Sparkling theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Sparkling Options -> Other -> Custom CSS

Best Regards,

Thx for your reply, Movin!

The social icons are displayed using Font Awesome font so you don’y have to use any image to display it and you have to just use the CSS code as shared in the topic.



Try using the below CSS code instead of that you shared.

#menu-social li a[href*=""] .fa:before, .fa-500px:before {content: "\f26e"}
#menu-social li a[href*=""]:hover {background: #b90000}
