Hi I would like the social media icons to open their respective platforms outside of the website (in their own window) when clicked. At the moment when clicked my website disappears when the social platform opens.
Do I need to add more code to have this happen or is there a setting somewhere I’m not looking.
One of the 4 sets codes (1 for each social media platform) I have reads like this:
Love to have some help with this.
Thanks in advance.
Hi Joe, thanks for getting back to me. Im using the Lunar theme that comes with social media icons for the banners. I was able to edit them for colours (under page styles) and which choose ones I am using (using code under the page sidebar). I checked out your site (cool!) and your social icons do open in a new window (I want that functionality) but I don’t intend to have them in the menu bar.
HI Joe, I got feedback from Elixir and the short story is cannot be done using the built in icons. I’ll figure something else out since I don’t want potential clients to fall down the Facebook rabbit hole and not get back to my site.
What I believe I said when asked was the following…
If you want to modify the link after upload that is fine, but is not related to the theme itself. You will need to do so though each time you publish your page.
If you want to modify the theme internally then you risk that change being overwritten when an update for the theme is pushed out to users. This is also up to you if that is something you’d like to do, but you will need to make the modification again after any updates to the theme.
Thank you for this. I see what you are saying and I appreciate the follow up. Like a dog on a bone I went ahead and I tried the edited code without the paren and it still opens in the same window. So I think I’m back to the drawing board I think.
Thanks Joe, I’m still not doing something right. I must be blind in one eye and can’t see out of the other LOL. Could I impose on you to fix my code so I can copy and paste? I would be so appreciative. I plopped my code in below just in case you say yes…
Thanks for your help.
Hi Joe, it’s tear hair out time. I swear I’ve done it exactly the same way with no luck. I tried a different browser just in case. I copied your code and carefully swapped out the relevant words.
I’m sorry, I just don’t get why its not working.
Thanks for all your help.
