Adding Social Icons Not Automatically Displayed by Squarespace

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.andrewlcawley.com/

Hi!

I'm including some socials in my header, and there are two that aren't automatically displayed by Squarespace: Actors Access and Casting Networks. I'm trying to implement these icons, and I've been directed by the Squarespace support team that my best bet might be coding. I was wondering if anyone had any code to use to put our own social icons in, in place of hyperlinks. If it's too challenging to do this in the header, I'm also open to moving my links to another part of my website. For reference, this image is of another website that I'd love to match.

Example for changing one icon

[href*="instagram"] svg{
  display: none;
}

[href*="instagram"] {
  background-image: url('https://api.iconify.design/ant-design/instagram-filled.svg');
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-position: center center;
  background-size: contain;
}

You can change the url with your desire icon.

Hope that it makes sense
