How to access and insert icons from the WordFly social icon library

 

In WordFly's Modern Editor there is an entire social icon library you can access directly in the editor. You can insert any of the available social icons directly into any text, preheader, footer or social links block.

 

The social icon library has all the major social icons available in a few primary colors: 

 

It is not possible to upload your own social icons to this library but you can learn how to upload your own social icons into any text, preheader, footer or social links block.

 

 

Follow these steps to add a WordFly social icon to a text, preheader, footer or social links block:

 

1. Open your email in Modern Editor.

2. Click on any text, preheader, footer or social links block.

3. From the left side of the editor (the Edit Content Panel) place your cursor in the open content area.

4. Click on Add > Image.

 

5. Click on 'Add icon' above the src field.

 

6. This is the WordFly social icon library. Click the icon you would like to add to your block.

 

7. After clicking your icon, fill in the fields for alt (alt text) and href (redirect link), 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 social icons you wish to add to your email design.

 

 

 

How can I use my 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. Review the links posts below to learn how to do this!

How can I continue to use 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 templates.

 

Option 1: Duplicate existing emails that already have social icons set up.

In WordFly we let you duplicate your email template to create new versions that can then be made unique for a new email campaign send. Learn how to duplicate a design

 

Option 2: Use Save to Blocks to create a custom social media block

In Modern Editor you can right-click on any block and select Save to Blocks to create a re-usable block for use in any email or page design. Learn how to save to blocks
