Xing + Direct Mail Icon in Social Media bar

Sterling job on the fashionista theme, thank you very much!

I have a question concerning the social media icons, which are displayed in the sidebar.

I would like to include the following:
(1.) icon
(2.) an e-mail icon

I have tried to achieve (1.) by adding the following code to my CSS code, using Simple Custom CSS:

.social-menu-widget a[href*=""]::before {
    content: '\f189';

This did not bring any results.

Is there any other possibility to include the two icons in the social media bar without installing another social media plugin (any of which I have tried simply did not look as great as yours does).

Thank you very much for your help!

Kind regards,


Hello Sebastian,

I don’t think that there is an easy way to do this. It looks like this issue requires some coding and testing, this goes beyond our support policy. It’s considered advanced customization. As an option, you can find a reputable freelancer on Upwork for this kind of service.

Kind Regards, Roman.
