The above shortcode will display a link to each social media page and its icon.

Using shortcodes in your theme files

You can also display shortcodes in your theme files using this function:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[your shortcode here]')?>

Extending the social links

Sometimes, you want to add more links and icons to the list. You can do this with this hook nc_contact_social_extend_links.

Step 1:

Add the code to display the link and icon. Change the highlighted code to whatever you want and notice the pattern.

function extend_contacts(){ 
   <?php if( get_theme_mod('yelp_link') ):?>
    <a href="<?php echo get_theme_mod('yelp_link');?>" target="_blank" 
      style="padding:0.5em" title="Yelp" class="ncsocial_link ncsocial_yelp">
      <?php // your svg image file code here ?>
   <?php endif;?>
add_action('nc_contact_social_extend_links', 'extend_contacts');

SVG Image Icon

You’ll have to use an SVG file code to make the icon for your link appear. You can get these files from anywhere like

Afterward, you open the file in an editor and paste it inside your function. To keep your code clean, you can include the SVG file by uploading the SVG file to your theme, adding .php to the file extension. So imagefile.svg would become imagefile.svg.php . Last, place the following where you want the SVG code to appear:

<?php get_template_part('path/to/file/imagefile.svg');?>

Step 2:

Now, you have to add the Customizer input fields. Learn more about the Customizer API.

function nc_customizer_contact_details_extended($wp_customize) {

   // Yelp
   $wp_customize->add_setting('yelp_link', array(
    'default' => '',
    'sanitize_callback' => 'nc_sanitize_text'
   $wp_customize->add_control('yelp_link', array(
    'label' => 'Yelp',
    'section' => 'nc_contact_section',
    'type' => 'url',
    'priority' => 8


add_action('customize_register', 'nc_customizer_contact_details_extended');

Customize the social links

You can customize the social links via CSS custom properties. Just paste this code in your theme or CSS Customizer field and alter the values. View the browser inspector to learn more:

.yourclass .ncsocial {
  --icon-width: 2em;
  --icon-gap: .75rem;
  --icon-radius: 50%;
  --icon-scale: scale(1.25);
  --icon-color: currentColor;
  --icon-color-hover: currentColor;
  --icon-bg-color: none;
  --icon-bg-color-hover: none;
  --icon-border: solid .08em;
  --icon-border-hover: solid .08em;
