    Is it possible to use the Facebook (or Dribble) account field in the theme options and have this pointed to a Linkedin account?

    If not, how can i add Linkedin?

    I don’t see any Linkedin icon in the layout images folder. Can I find/get this somewhere?

    Is there a particular reason Linkedin is not included in this theme? I see it is included in other Kriesi.at themes.

    of course. open the footer.php file and scroll down to the social bookmark list. there you need to change the url:

    “http://dribbble.com/” with “http://linkedin.com/”

    Whenever you fill in into the dribbble field in your backend will now link to linkedin. you might also want to replace the dribbble icon in your images/layout folder with a linkedin icon like this one: http://www.iconfinder.com/icondetails/65837/24/

    Hi there,

    I also wish to add the LinkedIn icon too. Doing this method, will the icon be added to the header too?

    If not, is there a way to add it to the header too?

    Thank you,

    Joseph

    Hi Joseph,

    To add icons to the header, you will need to edit header.php. You’ll also need to add more code than what Kriesi gives above. Are you using the Propulsion theme as well?

    Thanks for the reply. I didn’t get any notifications that more comments were added to this post.

    I too am using the Propulsion theme.

    I am not afraid to add more code, Well copy/paste it anyway. I can only write very basic php.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Joseph

    Hi Sharpie251,

    Kindly open wp-contentthemespropulsionfunctions.php, and find this line of code:

    if($dribbble = avia_get_option('dribbble')) echo "<li class='dribbble'><a href='http://dribbble.com/".$dribbble."'>".__('Follow us on dribbble', 'avia_framework')."</a></li>";

    then replace dribble with linkedin. Hope this helps. :)

    Regards,

    Thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately It didn’t work. I changed what you said:

    if($dribbble = avia_get_option(‘linkedin’)) echo “<li class=’linkedin’>“.__(‘Connect with us on LinkedIn’, ‘avia_framework’).”“;

    When I add the LinkedIn name in the social networking field, the icon only appears on the footer and not the of the site and still connects to Dribbble.

    If I were to change all the php files that had dribbble to LinkedIn would that work?

    Thank you

    I just wanted to thank you all.

    I go it. Took your advice and ended up changing all the dribbble to linkedin in all the php files that has them. Also had to recreate the linkedin icon to match.
