Social Icons Block

Short url:

The Social Icons Block allows you to insert a row of social icons, along with links to your various platforms.

To add an icon, click on the Add block icon (Block Toolbar Add Block). Clicking this icon will show a Block Inserter popup, which is a small panel that gives you access to all the different types of social icon blocks that you can insert. By default, it only shows six recent blocks. To view all the available social icon blocks, click the Browse all button in the popup to show the Block Inserter panel. Alternatively, if you know the name of the social icon block, you can start typing its name in the search field to filter the list of blocks shown. Once you click on a block to insert it, the new block will be appended to the end of the existing social icons.

After inserting each social icon, you can click on each one and a URL field will display allowing you to enter the URL to use for the social icon link.

You can change the order of the social icons by clicking on each one and clicking the Move left (Block Toolbar Move Left) or Move right (Block Toolbar Move Right) icons in the Block Toolbar. To remove an icon, click the icon you wish to remove and then click the More options icon (Block Editor More Options) in the Block Toolbar and select select the Remove option for that particular icon.

Once you've added your Social Icons Block, you can also use the Styles panel in the Settings Sidebar to change the look of the icons.

The various options for this block are located within separate Settings () and Styles () tabs, in the Settings Sidebar.
