i’m using the ‘simple social icons’ plugin however the icons don’t seem to be displaying properly. see the screenshot for what I’m talking about. can’t post the URL as it’s a local wordpress installation.
also when i add more icons they just stack vertically.
any ideas?October 7, 2013 at 5:21 am #65633
The link to the screen shot will not display but for what it’s worth you can resize the icons accordingly.

sorry here is the link. i should have made it clearer the actual icon is not displaying, the background is visible.
i’ve seen other people with the same problem on other forums but no real solution yet…October 7, 2013 at 4:44 pm #65724October 7, 2013 at 4:55 pm #65725
yep just into a sidebar. i’m building a website based on the sample child theme.October 7, 2013 at 5:11 pm #65726
It’s kind of hard to determine what’s going on but it looks like the widget is in the center of your page.

ok i’ve moved the site to a development domain overnight but still no luck. take a look here – http://influencer.dylanmcleod.net.au/October 7, 2013 at 5:19 pm #65730
What themes is this you’re using? It looks like you have the social icons in the footer section.

it’s based on the genesis sample child theme but i’ve been modifying it. it’s definitely not in the footer section, the widget is in the primary sidebar.October 7, 2013 at 5:29 pm #65732
From looking at the link you posted I can see the social icons and your About section, at the bottom of your page. It looks like the section you have the icons in is to small to accommodate the social icons.

odd. what browser are you viewing it in? it’s in the correct spot on my end (firefox) and i haven’t altered the sidebar/widget width…October 7, 2013 at 5:46 pm #65741October 7, 2013 at 5:47 pm #65742October 7, 2013 at 5:50 pm #65744
sorry i meant try the website again. also i just viewed in chrome and it’s in the correct spot for me, just not displaying correctly.October 7, 2013 at 7:05 pm #65763
just an update to say i’ve fixed it.
have copied the CSS from the plugin and added it my child theme CSS file. that has sorted the vertical stacking of the icons and now the icons are appearing.
i’m sure all that wasn’t necessary as i’ve had it working on other child themes but it works for now.
