I have the builder with associated child ithemes.  Whenever I use any of the free plugins to add social icons I encounter a problem.  The plugins don't just add the icons to the posts and pages they add them to every widget area which messes up formatting and puts many, many social icons on the same internet display.   Will Frolic automatically add them just to the posts or pages and not the widgets?  For other plugins I have to manually add the codes to the pages and posts.

Hello Mark,

If you're comfortable with a little code you can use do_shortcode to place Frolic in all posts, pages, etc. We can point you in the right direction to learn more about that. Otherwise you will have to manually enter the shortcode into each post or page. As far as widget use, your icons will only show in the widget area you place it.

Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,

Gerroald

This problem can easily be fixed using CSS (here is an example). For further details, post in Builder support forum with the URL where this issue can be seen.
