Upcoming So Simple Update

We should be pushing a minor update to So Simple shortly. This one addresses an issue where social icons aren’t displaying as expected in the site footer. If you would like to attempt the fix yourself then it’s fairly simple. Once you’re logged into your WordPress admin navigate to Appearance > Editor > footer.php and find the following:

$social_icons = array( 'facebook', 'twitter', 'linkedin', 'instagram', 'pinterest' );

    foreach ( $social_icons as $icon ) {
        if ( $url = get_theme_mod( $icon ) ) :
            echo '<a href="' . esc_url( $url ) . '"><svg class="icon icon-' . $icon . '" viewBox="0 0 32 32"><use xlink:href="#icon-' . $icon .'"></use></svg></a>';

Now replace line 5 with this:

if ( $url = get_theme_mod( 'sosimple_' . $icon ) ) :

Et voilĂ , your social icons should be displaying once again.

Folio Update, v3.4.8

It turns out that WordPress 4.6 uses a function that conflicts with one we setup in Folio and didn’t prefix with theme name as we should have. We’ve taken this opportunity to fix a few other things as well that weren’t quite working exactly as we wanted. Read more here.
