    Is there anyway that other social media icons (not on the official list) be easily added to the social menu? If this isn’t possible could it be on the wish list for any future upgrade? I also noticed that there was no icon for ‘about.me’ and I would have thought there would have been one.

    If icons for non specified social media isn’t likely is it possible that initials or text could be added so that the social media menu boxes don’t appear as blank? The links still work but it’s a shame there is nothing to clearly show or hint at what they are.

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is mocoscribe.com.

    Hello,

    Available Social Icons for Candela are:

    Please visit the Candela documentation to see the available icons of social medias.

    https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/candela/support/

    * Candela supports 21 Social Media Links at the moment.

    Is there anyway that other social media icons (not on the official list) be easily added to the social menu?

    In Candela, we are using Font Awesome icons for social media links. Here is the complete list of social media links available at Font Awesome.

    You can help us to add more social media links to the Candela which are available at Font Awesome.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the update. Not sure how I can help you to add more social media links? I notice that about.me is still missing from Font Awesome.

    I’ve noticed another problem in that I’ve uploaded a background texture to use and it doesn’t appear. The colour I’ve chosen seems to cover it up and I can’t see a way of switching the background colour option off. Any ideas/help?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I notice that about.me is still missing from Font Awesome.

    If about.me is missing on Font Awesome than we will be unable to provide the icon support for about.me in the current version. However, i will discuss with the developers to have some possibility about this.

    I’ve noticed another problem in that I’ve uploaded a background texture to use and it doesn’t appear.

    Make sure you are using Box Theme Layout to make the patterns or backgrounds visible. Please follow the simple steps,

    Go to Appearance > Customize > Theme Options > Theme Layout > Box

    Thanks
