Social Share Component

the qzshare and weibo icons doesn’t display.
I use qq and weibo fontawsome

I am trying to add LinkedIn using this but not getting any new share icons, no browser console errors:

LinkedIn, linkedin, Share to LinkedIn, https://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&url=

Settings:

You should use fab-linkedin for the icon, for both settings

Ahh that did it! Thanks. FontAwesome is less awesome with those class changes.

The distinction can be nice for some icons like comments

https://fontawesome.com/icons/comments?style=solid
https://fontawesome.com/icons/comments?style=regular

It has the same name, but not the same prefix. It’s easier to use now

I’ve installed this theme-component like this:
Untitled3

Then set up some social shares as described in this thread:


(tested with fa-certificate just to make sure the icon was available)

But when I try to share:
Untitled4

Nothing:
Untitled

What am I missing?

I also have another little one here

@cogdog Could you please share the exact strings you used to get the LinkedIn sharing to work?

In the Component Settings:

social share links: LinkedIn, fab-linkedin, Share to LinkedIn, https://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&url=

svg-icons: fab-linkedin

I think I had to do force-refresh in the browser to nudge it.
