    I have a basic understanding of how the theme pulls an .svg file to display member's ‘social icons' like Facebook and Instagram. I'm trying to add some more, like a ‘Website' icon, so that people can display a link to their personal websites. How do I add my own custom icon to the spot? It currently displays as a blank grey circle because I don't have a icon.

    On that same note–the ‘Profile Social Links' has an ‘Image' option where I can load an image from the backend. Problem is, I can't see what that image does. Where does it go? Is it displayed somewhere?

    hi @aaronmcnany,

    You can upload your icon from backend
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3JP4B8e-iV8Yl80a2p1SHhqV28/view?usp=drivesdk
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3JP4B8e-iV8ajBKVGtqenc3MTQ/view?usp=drivesdk

    or you can also use font awesome css to display them.
    I have added some example to for Tumblr ,Google+, Vimeo.

    
    #item-header #item-header-content a[title="Tumblr"] i::after {
      color: #a27443;
      content: "\f173";
      font-family: fontawesome;
    }
    
    #item-header #item-header-content a[title="Google+"] i::after {
      content: "\f0d5";
      font-family: fontawesome;
      color: #a27443;
    }
    #item-header #item-header-content a[title="Vimeo"] i::after {
      color: #a27443;
      content: "\f27d";
      font-family: fontawesome;
    }
    #item-header #item-header-content a[title="Blog"] i::after {
      content: "\f040 ";
      font-family: fontawesome;
       color: #a27443;
    }

    For some reason I wasn't able to get the ‘backend' upload to work. The image did upload, but it wasn't displaying on the front end. What size are you using for your example? Is there a filetype I should use?

    I've attached screenshots so you can see that I've followed your advice. I've tried different sizes, and I've also tried .png, .tiff, and .jpg and none of it has displayed on the front end.

    My Child-theme is 2.0.7, but my main theme is 2.1.6. How do I update my child theme? Thought I wasn't supposed to.

    I'm frustrated because on February 4th you told me to move an entire folder into the child theme: https://www.buddyboss.com/support-forums/topic/add-friend-first-choice-by-default-on-cover-photo/

    The reason was because YOU had a bug with your theme, so you gave me this workaround. Now, because of a Boss. theme bug, I've got to go out of my way to do a custom update on my child theme. Honestly, I think you guys should be the ones to fix it. I've tried to custom update some of the folders, but the file structure is slightly different and it's messing up my site.

    Perhaps you can just pass me the location of that ‘social icons' plugin so that I can edit the lines to match the new update?
