Any reason for the limited social icon support?

    Wordpress normally supports a bigger list, including Amazon, which (as an author) is the one I noticed is missing. Any reason why?

    The blog I need help with is:

    Hi Dave – thanks for the message.

    Romero was made before the new social icons were added. Only the newer themes support them.

    The best option would be to add a custom icon yourself.

    You can do that with the following css. You will need to replace the path/to/image with a png that you upload to your site. I have made an icon the correct colour for you to use here:×3000.png

    .menu-social-links ul li a[href*=""]:before {
        content: '';
        width: 16px;
        background: url(path/to/image) no-repeat center;
        background-size: 16px;

    Thanks – Ben

    OK, thanks, Ben. I’ll give that a try.

    Given that one of the perks of paying for WordPress Premium is themes, I’d expect Automattic to be budgeting for regular refreshes to update them. 😢
