Frequently Asked Questions
Can I display the icons with a shortcode?
Sure, you can use the
[zilla_social] shortcode in your pages and posts.
Can I add the icons to my template files?
Yep, you can use the following PHP code
if( function_exists('zilla_social') ) zilla_social();.
Can I use parameters in the shortcode?
Indeed, you can pass in optional “size” and “services” parameters to both of the above to override the default values e.g.
[zilla_social size="16px" services="Twitter,Facebook,Google+"] or
if( function_exists('zilla_social') ) zilla_social( '16px', array('Twitter','Facebook','Google+') );
