My angling web site wants to add a twitter logo that is clickable to send to the @CalpacAngling account. how do I insert the Twitter logo and make it clickable? The web address is www.calpac.info

It will probably be quicker, easier and safer to use one of the official components Twitter provides:
https://publish.twitter.com/

Third-party implementations of Twitter in websites are subject to change / breakage without warning. The official buttons and timelines Twitter provides are less prone to breakage.

Based on what you describe, you will want to generate a handle. The generated code can be pasted almost anywhere in RapidWeaver, within the main page body. If entering it into a styled text area, you may need to highlight the code and set it to ignored formatting in the RapidWeaver format menu.

You could use a Font Awesome icon with a link to your Twitter page, something like:

<a href="https://twitter.com/@CalpacAngling"> <i class="fa fa-twitter fa-4x"></i></a>

You can change the size up to 5x, I think, in the code above. You can also make it smaller if needed.

This worked fine, thank you very much, now I’ve got the youngsters off my back, They’re quick to ask for modernisation but they won’t help a 75 yr old run the site.

Thanks to Rapidweaver being such a user friendly programme even in my old age I’m getting the hang of it.

Kind regard
