Change default ordering

You can change the default ordering of the social icons by performing a small template override, please follow the instructions below

    Create the override php file

  • Copy the default.php file located here:
    /modules/mod_rssocial/tmpl

    to:
    /templates/template_name/html/mod_rssocial/

  • The default ordering of the icons is handled by the $socials array

  • Open:
    /modules/mod_rssocial/mod_rssocial.php
    and copy the $socials array

  • After we retrieved the default ordering, we can override it in the newly created default.php

  • Head over to the newly created default.php and insert the array after the following line:
    defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access');
  • You can edit the order of the items from this array as per your needs, e.g.
 
  defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access');
      $socials = array(
        'facebook',
        'googleplus',
        'twitter',
        'youtube',
        'linkedin',
        'lastfm',
        'pinterest',
        'soundcloud',
        'tumblr',
        'flickr',
        'github',
        'vimeo',
        'digg',
        'skype',
        'instagram',
        'rss',
        'stumbleupon',
        'reddit',
        'mail',
        'recommend'
      );
?>      
 
 
  defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access');
      $socials = array(
        'youtube',
        'twitter',
        'skype',
        'facebook',
        'stumbleupon',
        'googleplus',
        'lastfm',
        'linkedin',
        'soundcloud',
        'pinterest',
        'flickr',
        'tumblr',
        'recommend',
        'vimeo',
        'github',
        'digg',
        'instagram',
        'rss',
        'reddit',
        'mail'
      );
?>
