NC for Hire

Hey Ningers, here is a simple yet elegant and modern social footer featuring entypo icon font and long-shadow icon design.  The whole thing requires no javascript or images and we may learn something new together.  What we are building is the following, using an icon font:

Minor NOTE: You do not have to have 2 rows of icons. If you'd just like one row, I'll explain below

The HTML for the Page Footer:  [All Code Attached at Bottom as TXT File]

STEP ONE: Copy this code to a text document and find/replace all instances of [YOUR NETWORK] and  yournetwork.ning.com with your own URLs and Network Name. Basically change all links to go to the pages on your network which the icon represents.  THEN, Place this in the above Footer Section of your Pages Manager:

<div class="jffooter">
  <a title="[YOUR NETWORK] on Facebook" href="http://facebook.com/YourPage"><div class="jfsocial">&#62220;</div>
  <a title="[YOUR NETWORK] on Twitter" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#62217;</div>
  <a title="[YOUR NETWORK] on Google+" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#62223;</div>
  <a title="[YOUR NETWORK] on Linkedin" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#62232;</div>
  <a title="[YOUR NETWORK] Member Map" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#59175;</div>
  <a title="[YOUR NETWORK] on Pinterest" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#62226;</div>
  <a title="[YOUR NETWORK] on Vimeo" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#62214;</div>
</div>
</br>
<div class="jffooter">
  <a title="Your Profile Page" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#59170;</div>
  <a title="Community Hubs for Surveyors" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#128101;</div>
  <a title="Add Yourself to Member Map" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#59172;</div>
  <a title="Surveying Photos" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#128247;</div>
  <a title="Articles for Land Surveyors" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#128240;</div>
  <a title="Student Surveyors" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#127891;</div>
  <a title="Surveying Video Library" href="http://yournetwork.ning.com"><div class="jfsocial">&#127916;</div>
</div>

 

Like So:

 

STEP TWO: Place This in your Top Section of your Custom Code Page at the top:

<link href='http://weloveiconfonts.com/api/?family=entypo' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

STEP THREE:  Add this Code to the Advanced Section of CSS:

/* entypo */
[class*="entypo-"]:before {
  font-family: 'entypo', sans-serif;
}
.jffooter {
  padding: 20px 0;
  text-align: center;
}

.jfsocial {
  display: inline-block;
  width: 70px;
  height: 70px;
  margin: 0 10px;
  line-height: 70px;
  font-family: Entypo;
  font-size: 35px;
  text-align: center;
  color: #bbb;
  border-radius: 50%;
  background: #eee;
  overflow: hidden;
  transition: color .3s;
}

.jfsocial:hover {
  color: #000;
  cursor: pointer;
}

.jfsocial {

    rgb(238, 238, 238) 20px 20px;
}

 

 

Further Customization:

If you only want one or threee row of icons, simply remove or add one entire block of links like so:

If you'd like to change the hover color of the links, change the value(s) in red (above) with the HEX code for the color you want.  The first red color is the color of icon before hover and the second red color is the one it changes to on hover..

Want to Change out the Icons?  Entypo has hundreds of icons to choose from.  Simply head to the Character Map for Entypo and change out the unicode for the icon with the one you prefer.  For example:    To change the icon for Facebook to one for Tumblr, simply change  &#62220;  to &#62229;  in the HTML portion.

 

I will be adding more customization options to this page on my project site under "Ning Tips". Enjoy!

    just as an exercise, I pretended that I had never done this before and followed my own tip to add slightly modified version of this to the bottom of Beautiful Nation Project as a demo.

    • Dear JF what do you mean "Add Yourself to member Map" ? :) This piece of code is awesome. I wanna try. Thank you JF.3236462?profile=original

      • NC for Hire

        that was about the point where i decided to make this tip/ template for everyone..that "Add yourself to member map" is merely a suggestion because i have a mapping group on my network which is separate from member map.... everything in there should be customized to your liking.. this is just a template to find/replace and try different things out.. the icons are all changable as well..

        enjoy!

  • Pretty slick bro..have to play with this one

  • This is great--JFarrow--thanks!  I'm going to try it out!

    Just updated the CSS portion with another color change option.  Portions in red can be easily changed to reflect colors on your site.  Like so...
