Here’s a Divi tip on how to add Instagram to the top social menu.

I see people asking for ways to insert the Instagram logo/link in Divi’s designated social links areas, like the top bar, and the footer social area. I didn’t care about doing any of that because I just used a social plugin, but after a client asked about IG, I decided to look into it. It’s actually easier than it sounds/looks.

(note: I’m sure ET will add IG to their updates soon, but for now, this is a really simple way of getting this done.)

The icon

So let’s start with the icon set. Found here.

Get the code for the icon you want. In this case, let’s go with Instagram.
(note: you can swap this out for any other social network, but change the codes)

I’ll use this code:



See the first three characters? & # x ? That will become a \ –> So it’ll be a \e09a –> that will become the icon code in a sec.

 

The CSS

Let’s replace an icon that’s… not used much… So pick one or the other from the two below

/* Replace the G+ icon, whatever that is, or the RSS icon */
.et-social-google-plus a.icon:before {
  content: "\e09a";
}
.et-social-rss a.icon:before {
  content: "\e09a";
}

Just paste that anywhere you would normally paste custom CSS,

add the instagram address

and you’ll have the instagram icon where the RSS icon used to be. (or you can swap out the Google Plus icon, because that’s.. useless.. too)

So there you have it. Super simple.
