Adjust the size of the social icons

You can adjust the size of the social icons in the Beaver Builder Theme's top bar, Nav Bottom header, or footer with the CSS in this article.

The social icons used by the Beaver Builder Theme are all from the Font Awesome icon set with the exception of the Blogger icon. If you want to include the Blogger icon in your social icon set, there are some extra CSS rules for that icon at the end of the article.

See the Related Articles for information about how to set up the social icons in the header or footer layout and how to add the correct links to your social sites in Customize > General > Social Links.

To adjust the size of the social icons:

  1. Add one of the CSS rules below, depending on where your social icons appear.
    See the article on where to add CSS code.
  2. Click Save & Publish.

Note: If you make the icons too large and spaced too far apart, you may exceed the width of the theme column, and the icon row will wrap.

For top bar icons:

Adjust the top, right, bottom, and left margins in Line 3 to add extra space between the icons and the top and bottom of the top bar, as required. Change the font size in Line 6 to the size you want, and adjust the spacing between icons in Line 7 if necessary with the width attribute.

For header icons:

Change the font size in Line 3 to the size you want, and adjust the spacing between icons in Line 4 if necessary with the width attribute. Change the value in Line 7 if you need to adjust the icons' right alignment.

For footer icons:

Change the font size in Line 3 to the size you want, and adjust the spacing between icons in Line 4 if necessary width attribute.

Icon displays with the Blogger icon

If you have selected the Blogger icon to appear in your list, the CSS is more complicated, because the Blogger icon is not part of the Font Awesome set. It uses a different CSS class, and once you set the size, its position relative to the other social icons needs to be adjusted in the different ways.

Add the following CSS rules to the previous set if you are using both Font Awesome icons and the Blogger icon. If you're using only the Blogger icon, use only these rules.

Top bar blogger icon:

Change the font size in Line 3 to the size you want.

Header blogger icon:

Change the font size in Line 3 to the size you want, and adjust the spacing between the Font Awesome and Blogger icons in Line 4 if necessary. Adjust the top value in Line 6 to vertically align the Blogger icon with the other social icons.

Footer blogger icon:

Change the font size in Line 3 to the size you want, and adjust the spacing between the Font Awesome and Blogger icons in Line 4 if necessary. Adjust the top value in Line 6 to vertically align the Blogger icon with the other social icons.
