How to access and insert icons from the WordFly icon library

 

An entire icon library can be accessed directly in Modern 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 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 Icon.

 

5. Click the icon you would like to add to your block.

 

6. 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 icons you wish to add to your email design.

 

 

 

How can I use my own social media icons?

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 you can 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
