    Why hasn’t Yelp been added as a social media account option? There have been requests going back five years. But WhatsApp has been added for some reason? That doesn’t make sense.

    Thanks for an otherwise amazingly awesome theme!

    Hey Kevin,
    The WhatsApp was added to replace the Google+ when it shut down, I guess at the time it seemed to be more requested.
    Have you seen our documentation on adding social icons?
    Do you want help with implementing this?

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Hi, Mike. Thanks for the link and the offer to help. I know how to add social icons using that method. I’m just surprised that Yelp, which is has a huge customer base (in the US anyway), hasn’t been added after at least five years. Virtually every client I’ve built a site for wants a Yelp link.

    Aside from that, this issue came up for me because of the recent issue where social media icons disappear from the header. The solution provided by a user and recommended by at least one moderator only covers icons that are built in. I had to spend time figuring out how to make it work with the custom Yelp icon I had added for the client in question. It was a bit of a pain and made me wonder how Yelp could still be overlooked after all this time.

    Anyway, thanks for your help.

    Hi,
    I will add it to the feature request for the dev team, perhaps it has just overlooked compared to the other features they have been working on.

    Best regards,

    Hi,
    The dev team has worked on this for the next version and in the Private Content area I have included the files for you to test.
    You will have to have the beta version of Enfold for this to work, so I also include this also.
    You will also have to include a filter in your functions.php to assign the post links for Yelp for the in-post social links.
    This is the link to the filter example
    I recommend setting up a staging site to test this on.

    Best regards,
    Mike
