Hey guys, any idea why the icons on the simple social plugin would go missing? I tried to uninstall and reinstall the plugin, but haven’t had any luck. I left one up at the bottom of http://bettermess.com. Any suggestions?
Did you move from one server to another by chance? Or from a staging platform to a LIVE website?
Nope, no major changes that I can think of that would have caused this.
Can you log into your account using FTP. Go to your Plugins folder, locate the Simple Social Icons folder. Click on Images and tell me if you have 3 sprite images in there.
I found this on Brian Gardner’s website. He says since you are using the plugin – go to your Style.css and remove the CSS under this header. There’s probably a conflict so remove this and all social media code below it.
/* Header Social Icons
I can’t figure out what is going on – its driving me insane… I’ve asked for help i get the same thing some error in java – I don’t do java, understand java etc.
Im runinning studiopress genesis with the manhattan child theme.
the plugin works FINE until I make the site “appear” on the route
so the wordpress url is http://h0m3.unleashyourpractice.com and the site url is http://unleashyourpractice.com – no server move, no move at all of the core files. literally I follow this article from wordpress: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory (i copy the htaccess and the index.php to the route and make the changes as told in the article linked… EVERYTHING except the simple social icons works…. I NEED help. Client really really really likes that the icons can be her “colors”… I’ve tried everything I can think of.
–oh – there is no social media section in the child theme css and this has happened on MULTIPLE installs on separate websites where I’ve finally just given up and installed the regular old icons… this client will NOT allow me to use the other.
I just looked at both sites and see the buttons at the very top right in Firefox.
