This ticket is for changes and fixes for the display of social media links as icons in the Profile.
I am adding in my suggestions but expect others to chime in and veto or add different ones

  • Add space between the images by add css like the following to custom.css (this adds 5px, see attached image)
    #bp-smp-header img{
  • Make sure all of the icons are links to the appropriate pages. On my page neither flickr nor YouTube are links (but delicious is).
  • I'm fine with the icons we have now. If you want something else offer up a GPL'd set so we can take a look. This is something we'll have to monitor to make sure we have icons as we expand the number of links we support.

Adding people who talked about it last time as watchers.

The spacing problem is caused by the second problem, having to do with links. I think the second problem was caused by my hasty setup today, which I have now fixed. Please try saving your profile again and let me know if it's fixed.

FWIW we don't have to have GPL icons for the site (though they do need to be licensed in a way that lets us use them). The GPL restriction is only crucial if I'm going to distribute the icons with the plugin.

Actually, it turns out I have the ability to resave your profile for you (through a script; see #1451). Looking good now. Let me know what you think.
