Hi how can i change my social icons from the default one to my custom social media?I would also love to have contact icons instead of words like email,phone,website is it possible?01/22/2016 at 10:05 am #362021
Well, it is possible but requires coding in PHP because there is no easy point and click way of making these changes and doing this with PHP really would not be trivial. I can look into making this easier but I can not promise any eta at this time.01/22/2016 at 11:22 am #362049

re: i understand this requires php and it may be alot to ask but an i get guidance on how to implement this?
card-single.phpyou’ll find these lines:
if ( $atts['show_addresses'] ) $entry->getAddressBlock( array( 'format' => $atts['address_format'] , 'type' => $atts['address_types'] ) ); if ( $atts['show_family'] )$entry->getFamilyMemberBlock(); if ( $atts['show_phone_numbers'] ) $entry->getPhoneNumberBlock( array( 'format' => $atts['phone_format'] , 'type' => $atts['phone_types'] ) ); if ( $atts['show_email'] ) $entry->getEmailAddressBlock( array( 'format' => $atts['email_format'] , 'type' => $atts['email_types'] ) ); if ( $atts['show_im'] ) $entry->getImBlock(); if ( $atts['show_dates'] ) $entry->getDateBlock( array( 'format' => $atts['date_format'], 'type' => $atts['date_types'] ) ); if ( $atts['show_links'] ) $entry->getLinkBlock( array( 'format' => $atts['link_format'], 'type' => $atts['link_types'] ) ); if ( $atts['show_social_media'] ) $entry->getSocialMediaBlock();
You would have to remove the lines for email, phone and links and write your own code to output your own custom icons. You can query that raw data for these by using the
$entry->getLinks()functions. found in the
class.entry-data.phpfile. The “block:” functions that you are replacing can be found in the
re: Also how do i change the font color from black to grey
This can be done easily by using the Template Customizer. Go to the Connections : Templates admin page and click the Customize button for the Default Entry Card template. The page will reload with a preview on the right and the Customizer on the left. Click the back arrow in the upper left of the Customizer and then click the Style panel. You’ll have options to change a few styles.
Hope that thoroughly answers your questions.01/23/2016 at 3:24 am #362077
Hi Steven i tried to change a few social icons by changing the images in the wpzoom but there is inconsistency as they sometimes appear and sometimes they dont.01/23/2016 at 11:51 am #362107
If you only just replaced the images… then you likely need to force refresh the page because the browser will use the images it already downloaded into its local cache.
