Social Icons in footer not working

I am using the Sydney template and so far is am pretty happy. But I am dealing with the issue that I would like not to have only my phone and email address in the first footer (left end page, now there are phone and email address to see) but I also would like to have a social icon (such as LinkedIn) in to this area. However what I tried I seem not be able to make this work.

Also not able to add them in footer 1, footer 2 or even in footer 3…

I also purchased the Sydney pro theme, and also not able to make it work in the pro version. Can you help me out and put me in the correct direction ?

Kind regards Mike

Hello there,

First you have to create social menu from Appearance > Menus before you can use the Sydney FP: Social Profile widget. Please refer to this thread https://athemes.com/forums/topic/available-right-to-left-text-and-form/#post-255948.

Hello there,

You can manage the social icon color inserted into the footer area by using the below CSS code:


.footer-widgets .widget_fp_social a{
  color: #8fc36b !important;
}

To apply it to your site, you need to insert it through Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS.

Hi Kharis,

Last code works great!

Now the linkedin icon is in the correct colours.
Only would like to have the icon being more to the left and a bit smaller so that is aligned to the other icons. (e-mail and phone icon)

Also looked for some css code but could not find the correct one…

I found a way to set the icon more to the left but still not able to manage the size of the icon…
