Social profile email not working


#1

I have three links on my social profile widget on the front page, but the email icon is not showing up. only the Facebook and twitter icons are present. The email icon is present in the menu for social links i made, its just not turning up on the front page.
website is: medx.manmedsoc.com

Hi,

You have added additional code in order to show envelope icon. Remove that code http://screencast.com/t/t9WXyjCp and apply custom css code below:

.social-menu-widget a[href*="mailto"]::before {
    content:"\f0e0";
}

Code will target social link with href=mailto and will apply envelope icon to it like this http://screencast.com/t/4sLIaKjkw

Best Regards

hi i have added the css code, but however the mailto link does not open up a new email to that address. instead it’s opening up the parent wordpress page for the website. is there anyway we can make the email icon link to open up a new email to medx@manmedsoc.com

Hi,

You have to add it like this mailto:medx@manmedsoc.com and it wont work from Chrome, but it will work from Firefox. It is probably disabled with some of updates because it is deprecated way to show your email, mostly because of spam.

Best Regards
