Google Social Icon is displaying as a generic link icon

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://wolf-carnation-plnt.squarespace.com/

So if you look at the right side of the header on this site you will see 3 logos. One for Facebook, one for Yelp and the one that is just a generic link. That link goes to the business's Google page! 

I did a live chat with a Squarespace rep and they told me Google icons are not an option. This is ridiculous if you ask me. 

I need to figure out a way to import the Google icon in the place of the generic link icon. Any ideas?

@tuanphan  I realized the site is not quite ready to be published so I have held off on that.

I did figure out how to select the links with CSS, but I am not sure how to change their icon? All my searches keep coming to the conclusion that I need to change the html. How would you do this with just CSS?

Was there a solution for this?  I have the exact same issue outstanding.  https://getimagenow.com.  In the footer you'll see a generic link where my GMB icon could/should be.  Thx!


Add to Cover Page Settings > Advanced > Header

  .icon-wrapper.url {
    background-image: url(https://beaverhero.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/artboard-1-.jpg);
    background-size: cover;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: center center;
  .icon-wrapper.url svg {
    visibility: hidden;

Replace with your icon url
