social buttons

Hi

how can I disable the social buttons in this template?

If I remove the checkmarks in the template administration they just come back after saving.

What to do?#

Hi vanbrel,

Do you mean the Boost template as I wasn't aware the gazetta template was on general release?

Cheers

Hi Hans,
Ive just tested here and it's working fine. Do other changes you make stay saved?

re the release time - it was released silently on Saturday - officially today - well in a few hours time :)

Thanks!

Hi

I have deinstalled the gazetta theme and I'M back at the responsice2 theme.

Anyhow it looks like I am too stupid to hide the social icons.

In the template manager I have removed the check marks of all social icons. Then I pressed the "save" button and I get the message that my changes have succesfully been saved.

When I get back to the social buttons to check all the marks are back again.

I have installed a new user - pls check yourself:

/* removed for security reasons */

Thanks for your patience!

I've removed the access details as this is a live forum and we don't want you to be compromised

Hi vanbrel,

I think the issue with your set up is beyond just the social icons - can you change any setting in the site?

I didn't keep the access details but

Rob my colleague has pointed out what the issue probably is

You have an index.html file in the root - if you remove this the template should work

o.k - you are right! this way it works. Now I understand that I have to delete the index.html file. Then I make my changes and then I make an upload of the index.html again.

Somehow strange!

Thanks

Hi vanbrel,

A server will always look for the index.html file first and this quite often causes problems

It will be an issue with many templates given how the admin works

So if you want to switch back to Gazatta the template should work ok now
