Access and insert icons from the WordFly icon library
An entire icon library can be accessed directly in the editor. You can insert any of the available icons directly into any text, preheader, footer, or social links block. The icon library has the most common social icons available in multiple colors:
It is not possible to upload your own icons to this library, but you can upload your own social icons into any text, preheader, footer, or social links block.
To add a WordFly social icon to a text, preheader, footer, or social links block
1. In the right panel, click on a text, preheader, footer, or social links block
2. In the left panel, click your cursor into the open content area
3. Click on Add Icon
4. Select the icon you would like to add to your block
5. Fill in the fields for alt (alt text) and href (the website URL), then click I’m done
This adds the selected social link to your block along with the alt text and link you assigned to it. Continue repeating the steps above until you have added all of the icons you wish to add to your email design.
Using your own social media icons
Use your own social media icons by uploading the icons into a new media folder in WordFly, copying the image links, and then inserting these links into your text or social links blocks.

Using the same social icons across all emails
Once you have your email design finished you can continue to use the same social icons in each new email design. There are two options to maintain the same social icons in new emails.
Option 1: Duplicate existing emails that already have social icons set up
In WordFly you can duplicate your email to create new versions that can then be made unique for a new email campaign send.
