    Hi guys,

    I would like to replace the RSS icon in the home page of my website with an Instagram icon instead.
    I tried following these instructions from some old threads, but they dont seem to work anymore with the latest version of Flashlight.
    Could you let me know what the best way to do this is?
    Cheers,

    Gustavo

    Hey Focaljourney,

    Please go to Appearance > Editor and edit Sidebar.php file and find

    
    				echo "
     	<li class='rss'><a href='".avia_get_option('feedburner',get_bloginfo('rss2_url'))."'>RSS</a></li>
    ";

    and change it to

    				echo "
     	<li class='rss'><a href='https://www.instagram.com/'>RSS</a></li>
    ";
    

    then go to wp-content/themes/flashlight/images/skin-dark/icons-rounded-rss.png via FTP and change that icon to Instagram icon :)

    Best regards,

    Yigit,

    I have located the wp-content/themes/flashlight/images/skin-dark/icons-rounded-rss.png via FTP and changed the icons-rounded-rss.png file to icons-rounded-instagram.png and it just made the rss icon disappear.

    What do I need to do to get the instagram photo up?

    Hi,

    Please do not rename the image. Use “icons-rounded-rss” as the instagram image file name.

    Best regards,

    Hi,

    Do you have the cpanel info? You can access the image from there. Or provide the “instagram” image that you want to use and the FTP details to the site then we’ll replace the default image.

    Hi Ismael,
    I did everything as Yigit suggested but the rss icon is always present and the instagram icon does not.
    Where did I go wrong?

    Hi Tonci-M,

    https://cl.ly/3H3u2C0K3s0e These are the images that come with Flashlight, Instagram icon is not there, you need to find and upload your own and then you can use it.

    If you need further assistance please let us know.
    Best regards,

    Hi Victoria,
    In fact it is what I did but does not change anything …
    I corrected the code as suggested by Yigit, after that I went to wp-content/themes/flashlight/images/skin-dark/icons-rounded-rss.png
    and I’ve uploaded an instagram image but it’s all the same as before
    I’m sure I’m wrong in something but I do not know what
    I have to delete the folder “icons-rounded-rss” ?

    Hi,

    Did you replace the icons-rounded-rss.png file with the instagram image? Please don’t rename the file. We need access via FTP because we won’t we be able to access the image in the Appearance > Editor panel.

    Best regards,
    Ismael

    Hi,

    I’m sorry but the FTP details are not working. What is the ftp url? We need access to your instagram image or icon as well.

    Best regards,

    Hi,

    Is that the cpanel or the FTP login details? I tried to access it in the browser but it’s not working so it’s probably an FTP login details. I can’t connect to the file server either. Please hire a freelance developer or contact our partner, Codeable.

    Hi Ismael,
    my hosting provider asks what you use to connect and which error you receive
    I contacted them again and I had the login credentials you find in the private area.
    If you continue to have problems please tell me what you need exactly.
    With your colleague Mike we had similar problems but he managed to connect without problems …
    Try to understand that for the whole theme I spent about $ 70, ( including 6 month assistance) if I have to spend 60-90 $ to change an icon seems to me quite excessive …
    For me it is an unacceptable thing
    Let me know something about it

    Hi,

    Did you block or deny certain countries’ access to the server? You can find the team members’ location in the “About” page (https://kriesi.at/about). I’m trying to connect using Filezilla. Screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/G3Dvw

    I’ll ask Mike to check the thread.

    Best regards,

    Hi,
    I was able to login via FTP & WordPress and found that the instagram png is damaged and will not work, so I looked in your uploads folder in hopes to find copy of it but didn’t find one. If you link to the image here I will upload it for you and ensure that it works.
    Thanks for your patience.

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Hi,
    Ok, I found one that matched your site, transparent & gray
    instagram-icon-2
    I used this image because I understood your post to be asking this question, but if you prefer the color image I will upload that one.
    I resized & renamed & uploaded it, and it now shows. Please clear your browser cache and check.

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Perfect Mike, thank you!
    However, I see that the general page is opened, not exactly my account
    I went to see Flashlight-Contact & social stuff but there are areas of customization of the twitter, RSS and Facebook, how can I attach my Instagram account?
    Thanks again!

    Hi,
    I think that when you followed the instructions at the beginning, you made the link to instagram.com in the sidebar.php
    I changed it to instagram.com/your-page/ and now it works good.
    I added this file to your child theme, so you won’t lose the setting on the next upgrade.
    Please check. Let us know if there anything else we can assist with on this issue.

    Best regards,
    Mike
