custom social buttons
« on: Dec 11, 2012 @ 09:53 PM »
I would like to add a set of custom social buttons to my site. You know the type that are unique and small. Usually found on the top of the site and include one seperate button for facebook, google+, gmail, instagram, etc. I use WordPress on a self hosted site. Any idea where I can find these buttons? Is there a widget for these that I can self select and customize? I see them quite often but have not four d where to ti e them.

Free icon set round ups are pretty popular which can be really helpful. Here's a great roundup from Hongkiat.Com

Or search google for terms like 'social network icons' or 'free social network icon sets'.

A widget/module/plugin would make it easier. I don't use wordpress so can't recomend one. I've used plugins for my blog but usually end up wanting to customize it more so opt for adding them manually.

First of all you should find out that your CMS support any button text or not and Social networking buttons are available or not,if it doesn't work then you may set button by the help of HTML code.

I used the steps here to put Facebook, twitter, and RSS feed images on my blog. 

To tailor the look for my blog, I created my own png image using PowerPoint.  I'd be happy to share the file if anyone is interested.
