Yes I followed the instructions and all of the settings... I just didn't put anything for google and youtube because I don't need them.

Go into your skin template > and see the group skin_social has been created? Should be towards the bottom. Same with css, there should be hook_socialLinks.css in there.

If its there, try re-caching your skin.

Even if you put nothing (empty) in some textbox the icons appear and the link is the website default URL.

Working on having a multi select so you can choose which to enable and disable.

The tooltip on top of each icon could be customized. ie when on top of Facebook now it says "Facebook", what about " Hey, join us on facebook too :)" or something else more personalized "Hey, MemberName, Like us on FB".

Not that much important but still an idea.

Also, I think the icons should be a big bigger or include more versions, small, medium, large and then select from adminCP which version to show.

Also, the colors of the icons should be a not grey and the other color but lighter versions of the full.

For example, not grey-blue for twitter but light blue and full blue.

For google+, light red and full red etc.

Now that it's grey and small you miss them if you don't know where to look.

I couldn't get these to appear for some reason on 3.4.4. Are you aware of any issue with the latest release?

I did read through the readme.txt and set it up as specified.

Recommendation wise, per the demo, I would probably have them colored initially so they stand out more. Grayed out isn't a good eye catching approach.

My social icon images are not showing up after upgrading to 3.4.4 most likely the folder was over written, can you provide the exact location of the icon image folder so I can upload the images please?

You may also have to remove and re-install the hook.

Is there a way to change the facebook and twitter images to custom images? The current images are too dark for my board and cannot be seen. I have a dark grey color at the top of my forum and you can't see the current images so i'd like to replace them.
