Add more social icons

This guide will show you how to add a new social icon to the Social Icons widget. In this example we will add a Pinterest icon.

Step 1

Open the file wp-content/themes/storm/includes/widgets/social.php and find this line:

1
'audioboo' => 'AudioBoo',
'audioboo' => 'AudioBoo',

Below it, add this code:

1
'pinterest' => 'Pinterest',
'pinterest' => 'Pinterest',

Save the file and upload it to your site.

Step 2

Choose a 32 x 32 icon for this network, which you will be able to find using a search engine. Make sure the icon is PNG type and give it the filename pinterest.png (the filename without the .png part must match the left-hand string in the code added in Step 1).

Upload the icon to wp-content/themes/storm/images/social-icons/pinterest.png

The widget should now show the option to add a Pinterest URL.
