    First, I loved the free version of Evolve and have used it successfully for almost a year.
    I wanted a nicer social share box (hoping for a floating box to the left of page with custom colors) so I purchased Evolve Plus as it looked as though I could do this through the upgrade. This is the only thing I needed or wanted from the upgrade.
    I have done everything I can to enable the social share box and I get nothing. I still have the grey icons I had with the free theme at the bottom of the page, but that is it.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    Are saying you want different color for your share icons?

    Please post url to your share icons and also provide me with the hex color code for each icon.

    Thank you.

    Hi Denzel,

    Thanks for replying.
    Yes, I do want to have a custom color #A11223 for my social share icons, but right now, my social share box is not even showing up. I have the same social share icons in light grey at the bottom of the page that I had in the free version.

    With the upgrade, I set my social sharing box as Icons color all #A11223, Box color #ffffff, Share Box to be shown on Left.
    I want a share box (with my colors and social share choices) that looks like the one on this page: https://theme4press.com/evolve-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/

    A link to a post that shows my share icons: http://agelessvibe.com/what-is-the-law-of-attraction/

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    The share icons on this page https://theme4press.com/evolve-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/ is not part of the theme.

    It’s either a custom script or a plugin added by the theme author.

    This https://theme4press.com/evolve-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/ page is not the theme demo page.

    Thank you

    You have still have not even started to answer my question.

    Considering that https://theme4press.com/evolve-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/ is the landing page in which I was directed from wordpress to purchase the upgrade to the evolve theme, and that is where the social share box is showing (I realize it isn’t the demo page for the theme), it would seem the social share box was like the one used in the theme or that Theme4Press would at the least have some knowledge of the social share box. Are we not on Theme4Press in the support forum right now?

    And considering that I was using the free version of the theme beautifully and the areas that were darkened clearly indicate that by purchasing the upgrade that I will have customizing options:

    Social Share Box Shortcode

    Social Sharing Box Custom Icons Color
    Select a custom social icon color.

    Social Sharing Box Icons Boxed
    Controls the color of the social icons in the sharing box.

    Social Sharing Box Icons Custom Box Color
    Select a custom social icon box color.

    Social Sharing Box Icons Boxed Radius
    Box radius for the social icons. In pixels, ex: 4px.

    Social Sharing Box Icons Tooltip Position
    Controls the tooltip position of the social icons in the sharing box.

    Here is the pic that shows the darkened area on the free version before the upgrade: http://agelessvibe.com/evolve-premium-version-options/

    Again…
    My original question “The social share box in the upgraded theme is not even working at all”. You can look to the bottom of the pic I have shared as a post on my site to see the social share icons showing on my posts. The same social icons I had with the free version.
    I know I can get a plug in for sharing, I’ve used plenty of them. I like the idea of keeping my plug ins to a minimum, thus I purchased the upgraded theme because of the customizing options it said it offered. I obviously could have purchased a social share box for a lot less than a theme upgrade.

    Hi,

    These settings are for social sharing box shortcode. Not for those icons at the bottom of an article.

    To change the color of those icons you will need custom CSS.

    Add the following to Theme Options -> Custom CSS

    This is how it will look like.

    Thank you.

    Update: We were unable to connect on my issue, but I have found a plug in to do what I wanted and it works beautifully.
