[Resolved] displaying social media icon

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem:
The user is using URL fields to store social networks URLs, he would like to display this using custom images in the links.

Solution:
Toolset won't generate the social network icons, so you will have to build the link yourself. Use the output="raw" argument to get the URL.
For example:

<a href="<?php echo(types_render_usermeta( 'facebook2', array('output' => 'raw') )); ?>"><img src="https://domain.com/facebook.png"></a>

Hello and thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Toolset won't generate the social network icons, so you will have to build the link yourself. Use the output="raw" argument to get the URL.
For example:

<a href="<?php echo(types_render_usermeta( 'facebook2', array('output' => 'raw') )); ?>"><img src="<em><u>hidden link</u></em>"></a>

Read more about the raw attribute here https://toolset.com/documentation/customizing-sites-using-php/functions/#url

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
