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/

Copy the array

The default ordering of the icons is handled by the $socials array. Open this file: /modules/mod_rssocial/mod_rssocial.php and copy the 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',
        'twitter',
        'instagram',
        'linkedin',
        'youtube',
        'tiktok',
        'vimeo',
        'reddit',
        'tumblr',
        'snapchat',
        'whatsapp',
        'skype',
        'pinterest',
        'flickr',
        'soundcloud',
        'spotify',        
        'github',        
        'recommend',
        'mail'
      );
?>      
 
 
  defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access');
      $socials = array(
        'tumblr',
        'snapchat',
        'whatsapp',
        'skype',
        'facebook',
        'twitter',
        'instagram',
        'linkedin',
        'youtube',
        'tiktok',
        'vimeo',
        'reddit',        
        'pinterest',
        'flickr',
        'soundcloud',
        'spotify',        
        'github',        
        'recommend',
        'mail'
      );
?>
