Firstly thanks for the help getting me to the icons.
On a normal page I am able to make it so a click on an icon will link to something (a video) for example. The link opens in another page.
I created a new template from the builder with two columns. I select the option to fill in my own text, and I am able to get the icons showing in each column. BUT I can not get the icons in this format to link as I did in the word press page layout.
