When will Twitter links/icons (ex: Pages > Main Nav > Social Links) change to X?

Recommended Posts

I'm not aware of Squarespace being particularly quick in the past with a logo change for a social icon, I'm assuming for now it will remain as the bird, which may be a good thing... depending on your view of the rebrand from something recognisable to something generic.

Now that twitter has rebranded to X, when will we have social links available that reflect this change?

Have you asked Squarespace directly by raising a ticket through Squarespace Customer Care.

Update October 2023: The “X” logo is now available when you add a social link beginning with “x.com”.

It is something you can change with a little code, but not ideal with a dynamic header.

Here's some CSS code for the desktop header if anyone wants it, though the PNG will need updating for colour and the Twitter URL will need customizing:

@media only screen and (min-width:640px) { 
  .header-actions-action--social .icon--fill[href="https://twitter.com/ZygmuntSpray"] {
    svg {
      visibility:hidden;
    }    
    background-image: url('https://static1.squarespace.com/static/608c1294de99e60b4063273d/t/64da0ec779e4346629a49414/1692012231955/TwitterX+-+%23F58800+-+200px.png') !important; 
    background-size: 42% !important;
    background-repeat: no-repeat !important;  
    background-position: center center !important;
  }
}

SS has not shown an interest in keeping up with social icon display on their platform. Look at all the generic icons they apply to long established platforms like Discord and Patreon?

You can always get your feature requests in to customer service but don't hold your breath.

If you want it you'll need to code it.

Well looks like the folks over at Squarespace is updating this, right now when I go to put in our link to X it shows the correct logo and no more twitter bird:

The only thing is the logo does not show up in the header anymore, its blank, if you drag your mouse there you can actually click and it goes to our X page, but no one would know it's even there:

No. I still see the bird icon everywhere.

Some thoughts. This could be rolling out now. It could be an A/B test. It could be custom code.

I have the same thing.... I can see the X in the editing panel, but on the site it is invisible!
