    Hi,

    I’ve added the social links for Facebook and Twitter on my blog (washingtonmemo.org) but I am wondering if I could also add links for RSS, Instagram, and Youtube. Are those social links included in the Mina Olen theme? If they are not, is there a CSS code I could add to include them?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    It seems that currently active theme is not Mina Olen?

    But yes you can also add links to Youtube, Instagram and RSS. Here is doc for that under Social menu setup. Video is included.

    For example if you need youtube social icon, all you need to is add link to your youtube profile page. http://youtube.com/yourprofile

    Hi,

    The blog I need help is washingtonmemo.org (it is hosted on WordPress.com).

    Even though I added my RSS feed URL as a link on my social menu, the icon wouldn’t appear on my blogsite. What should the link text be for the RSS feed URL?

    Thanks!

    I also visited genericons.com and it provided a CSS code for RSS –

    content: ‘\f413’;

    I was told to “copy this and paste in my CSS :before selector”.

    What does “:before selector” mean?

    Thanks!

    Actually feed URL doesn’t automatically provide RSS icon. You need to add feed class in that menu item. After that add this CSS.

    #menu-social li.feed a::before {
    	content: '\f413';
    	vertical-align: middle;
    	padding: 0 5px 1px;
    }

    From here you can see how to add CSS classes to menu items.

    Forget about my advice adding feed class in menu item.

    I updated the theme so that feed address and icon will also work automatically. Change should be live in two days.
