Sparkling Social Widget not displaying icons

I’ve been using for Colorlib for a year and recently (perhaps after some WordPress updates) it stopped displaying social network icons. My WordPress account is linked to social media outlets (under Settings>>Media). Please advise how to get the icons back on my page! Thank you!

Hi @mynameisevelina

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

We have changed social icons functionality and made it more flexible in the latest version of the theme. In the latest version of the theme you can create social icons as described below.

  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 Links”
  4. Use Social Icons Widget in the Sidebar

Best Regards,

It works! Thank you!

You are most welcome here :slight_smile:
