Social Icons Widget PRO – Adding Icons in Menus

Written by Pavel Ciorici on in 0 comments

To add icons in menus, navigate to the Appearance > Menus page:

Select the Menu that you want to edit and then add an icon from the Social Icons by WPZOOM category.

If the icon that you need is not appearing in the list with icons, just enter your link and click on the Add to Menu button.

If the link goes to a known social network, then the plugin will automatically display the right icon. Otherwise, you can edit manually the icon and pick the right one.

If you want to add some text next to an icon, just enable the option Show icon labels?

Social Icons Widget PRO – Create Icon Sets & Using the Shortcode

Written by Pavel Ciorici on in 0 comments

Version 1.1.0 of the plugin brings a very useful feature – Icon Sets & Shortcodes:

From the Social Icons Sets section, you can create multiple sets of icons that you can later embed anywhere you want using a shortcode.

Add a few icons, change the styling options, and you’re ready to go!

After publishing a new set, you will get a unique shortcode for that specific icon set. You can add that shortcode in pages, posts or in a page builder using simple Text widgets:

The advantage of this feature is that you can insert the same set of icons in multiple locations and make changes at any time from a single place.
