is there a way in-place of an image in ‘contact’ to have links or icons for google+, linkedin, etc.?January 1, 2012 at 9:52 am #59597January 1, 2012 at 6:59 pm #59598
so you can’t replace the contact image (where it says ‘contact us’ with a jar of pens and pencils) with something like this? http://codecanyon.net/item/socialpop-a-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress/110958?WT.ac=search_thumb&WT.seg_1=search_thumb&WT.z_author=luckykind
if not, could i add ‘linkedin’ or google+ to the sidebar so I have something like… RSS / Facebook / Twitter / Linkedin / Google+
I saw another post here with this code, but it doesn’t match the theme look.
thanks & happy new year!!January 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm #59599
You could add a content element before the contact form and add your images and/or text to it. You can also try to modify the heading text in includes/contact-form.php (instead of “Send us mail” use something different) – however I’m not sure if it’s possible to implement the social popup plugin this way. I think the best bet would be to use a “social icon” shortcode within a content area before the contact form.January 2, 2012 at 12:45 am #59600
perhaps the best (and cleanest) way would be to add them to the sidebar. so how could I have something like RSS / Facebook / Twitter / Linkedin / Google+ ?? I am willing to drop RSS if space is needed.

Yes – I think that’s a better solution. I’m sure that: http://codecanyon.net/item/socialpop-a-social-media-plugin-for-wordpress/ allows you to add widgets to the sidebar. If not you can use shortcodes in text widgets too (you just need to add one line of code to functions.php: http://digwp.com/2010/03/shortcodes-in-widgets/ ). You could also insert the plugin php code in sidebar.php before following line:
echo " <ul class='social_bookmarks'>";January 2, 2012 at 3:39 pm #59602
could you maybe explain that a little simpler? i tried adding the above line to sidebar.php followed by the social media short code i listed above (from another post on copyright code), and i kept getting sidebar errors. in sidebar, where it neatly lists RSS / Facebook / Twitter … is it possible to add Linkedin and Google+ in the same way?
also would it be possible to add (within theme aesthetic) a live twitter feed to sidebar?
sorry for so many questions, thanks!!January 2, 2012 at 7:33 pm #59603
fyi i wrote the author of social+pop and he says the plugin works in sidebar.
i’m more interested in the code to add Linkedin & Google+ to the same line as RSS / Facebook / Twitter, cause i think that would look the best.January 9, 2012 at 11:52 pm #59604
I added a Linkedin link to this piece of code Dude suggested (second last line), this should allow you to also add others – simply copy paste :)
echo " <ul class='social_bookmarks'>";
echo " <li class='rss'><a href='".avia_get_option('feedburner',get_bloginfo('rss2_url'))."'>RSS</a></li>";
if($facebook = avia_get_option('facebook')) echo "<li class='text-sep'>/</li><li class='facebook'><a href='".$facebook."'>Facebook</a></li>";
if($twitter = avia_get_option('twitter')) echo "<li class='text-sep'>/</li><li class='twitter'><a href='http://twitter.com/".$twitter."'>Twitter</a></li>";
echo " <li class='text-sep'>/</li><li class='linkedin'><a href='yourlinktoyourlinkedinpage'>Linkedin</a></li>";
echo " </ul><!-- end social_bookmarks-->";
