Just wondering if it would be possible for me to modify this in code/css to have font awesome icons instead of social icons and link to key pages eg home, contact etc

Hello, Sorry for delay in anwer. Our team was on holiday.

This would be possible, but it would be big modification and would require some development work.

I am sorry but there is a problem with your plugin. In my site musicheed.com it appears for a very limited period of time and then it disappears! Please solve my problem otherwise I will have to request a refund

Hello, This is simple issue, easy to fix.

Please use custom CSS: .socialsider { z-index: 10; line-height: 1.5em; }

Hey, You can read more about licences here: http://codecanyon.net/licenses/standard

Basically Regular Licence is for single website. This website may be accessible from multiple addresses, but you can’t use the item on different sites.

If you want to use it on more than one website you should consider purchasing Extended Licence.

Hello! Great App!

Could you please also add the Feedly Button to your social set?


Thank you so much!

Best regards, Petr

Hey! Thanks! Unfortunatelly the social icons font we are using doesn’t support Feedly, so this would require some major changes.

This is planned for next update, but this not happening anytime soon.

Best, Boom Apps Team

Hey, Unfortunatelly not at the moment. All supported icons are shown in item preview.

Hey, We’ve just checked and it seems to work fine. What OS/browser are you using?

Best, Boom Apps Team

Yeah, it worked after adding .socialsider { z-index:10000; line-height: 1.5em; } in css

Is it possible to replace an icon with my own icon?

Hey, No, you’d need to modify the plugin code.

Olá! Eu comprei seu plugin mas vi que tem uma versão para wordpress nativa. poderia trocar a licença pra mim. Acabei de efetuar a compra. Como posso fazer isso.

Please give back my money the plugin does not work !!!!! I did not use the plugin and it is very difficult to install!

Please give back my money the plugin does not work !!!!! I did not use the plugin and it is very difficult to install!

Hello, You’ve purchased a plain HTML/CSS version. This is not a Wordpress plugin,.

Best, Boom Apps Team

Hellow Thank you so much for your useful software ! I have one question. HOW CAN I ADD OR CHANGE THE ICON DESIGN ? What kind of edit can I use for it ? Pls inform me in detail.

Very respectfully yours, HERBASD

Hello, This plugin uses a predefined icon font Socicon. Adding custom icons is not possible without HTML/CSS knowledge.

Best, Boom Apps Team

Hello, I see after installation on my site that the sidebar only expands with hover or click when browsers are fully maximized. Tested with latest Chrome and Edge browsers running on Windows 10 64 latest build.

Hey, Please provide us (here or PM hello@boomapps.eu) a link to this page. We’ll check it.

Best, Boom Apps Team

I sent you the link but haven’t heard anything back.

Hey, We’ve just answered your email with a fix!

Best, Boom Apps Team

I am interested. Do the social buttons just go to a link or the actual facebook share popup? twitter post etc..

Hey, This is only linking, not sharing.

However you can pass current page URL to the link.

Czy jest możliwość ustawienia wysuwanego opisu tak jak tu? (http://preview.codecanyon.net/item/socialsider-universal-social-sidebar/full_screen_preview/7033558). Ewentualnie czy pojawi się taka możliwość? I czy mogę ten kod podłączyć do motywu używanego w wordpressie?

Is it possible to set the description as here? (http://preview.codecanyon.net/item/socialsider-universal-social-sidebar/full_screen_preview/7033558). Alternatively, if the opportunity arises? And if I can this code to connect to the theme used in WordPress?

Hey, 1) There is no such feature in this plugin.

2) It is possible to add this to Wordpress theme files, but we’d suggest you to buy ready Wordpress plugin version of this item – https://codecanyon.net/item/socialsider-universal-social-sidebar/7042612

Best, Boom Apps Team

Please include IMDB in next update.

Also missing Quora, crunchbase, AngelList, medium.

Thanks for the feedback. We’ll release update in next week.

Best, Alex Boom Apps Team

Thank you.

Great update! Whatsapp should not show on desktop format, on firefox it will open a tab with an error, on chrome the button does nothing

Hi, Could you please PM us (hello@boomapps.eu) a link to page where this problem occurs? We’ve just tested the sidebar, and Whatsapp icon is displaying in every browser in our test environments and the link also works on every browser.

Best, Alex Boom Apps Team

Hey Alex, reading your answer we understood there is a windows 10 version for whatsapp desktop, as we did not have this installed nor new it existed we ran into the error, we will do some “if exist” stuff and problem solved!

Where can i find the css for it?

Hey, Please describe you problem again, because we are not sure what’s happening.

To install HTML version of Socialsider to your website you need to do 2 things:

1. Include the CSS file 2. Insert the code generated in the generator.

If, in some case, after following these two steps the plugin is still not showing up – please PM us at hello@boomapps.eu with a link to the page and we will check it.
