    I want to add a youtube button linking to our youtube channel – next to the facebook/twitter icons. Can I do this?

    Also, I have tried plugins and written code to embed youtube video in one of the 4 footer slots, but if the video is a link, it shows the line under the video, how do I get rid of this line? And if I do ‘text’ as a widget and put my html in there, the header links to my email. What is going on here?

    Hey,

    you can add your youtube icon in footer.php. Search for following code line:

    echo "<li class='flickr'><a class='ie6fix' href='http://www.flickr.com/people/".$k_option['footer']['acc_fl']."'>flickr</a></li>";

    and add your youtube link/icon after it.

    2) Sounds like a css problem – please post a link and we can give you custom css code.

    Hi,

    I found that code line and put this right under (when i send my post, this doesn’t show up correctly here.):

    echo “<li class=’youtube’>youtube“;

    i also put an icon in the images folder and fixed the css with:

    .wrapper #footer .social_bookmarks .youtube a{background: transparent url(../images/skin3/youtube_16.png) 0 0 no-repeat;}

    but, i’m still not seeing the youtube icon/link. what am i doing wrong?

    thanks!

    Can you post a link to your website please – I’ll investigate the css code.

    The website is ampdance.com – HOWEVER, i’ve been messing around with the code on a ‘test site” – design-ologie.com (which is my personal site i haven’t done anything with yet) so I don’t mess anything up on the client’s site as I’m trying to figure this out.

    design-ologie.com is where you can find the code that I’ve changed to try and get the youtube icon to show up in the lower right next to the FB/twitter icons.

    ampdance.com is where i put a link to a youtube video and their channel in the footer, but the video has a ‘link line’ under it, anyway i can get rid of that?

    THANKS for all of your help!

    Hey,

    1) Youtube link border – try following css code:

    #footer #text-4 a{
    border-bottom: none;
    }

    2) I search for the flickr code @design-ologie.com but couldn’t find the flickr link. I only see:

    <ul class="social_bookmarks">
    <li class="rss">
    <li class="facebook">
    <li class="twitter">
    </ul>

    Please add the flickr code because I think it’s just a css problem but I can’t investigate a non existent element.

    Hi – flickr is in there. I didn’t remove any code, I’ve only added to it. It’s in there, but it doesn’t look like how you have it. I don’t know that this will show up on my reply but i’ll try and copy+paste what it looks like:

    <ul class=”social_bookmarks”>

    <li class=’rss’>“>RSS

    <?php

    if($k_option != ”)

    echo “<li class=’facebook’>Facebook“;

    if($k_option != ”)

    echo “<li class=’twitter’>Twitter“;

    if($k_option != ”)

    echo “<li class=’flickr’>flickr“;

    if($k_option != ”)

    echo “<li class=’youtube’>youtube“;

    ?>

    HEY! I got everything to work! @ampdance.com

    one small thing. I want the icons to open in their own window. I’ve tried

    //

    target=”_blank”

    after the link – so it looks like:

    //

    echo “<li class=’youtube’>youtube“;

    It gives an error message on the site, doesn’t even show the footer.

    Try to use:

    target='_blank'

    instead.
