    Default Winchester Black responsive - looking for Social media icon flexible footer fix

    Hi, I am new to Zen Cart Forum and LOVE the picaflor templates...

    I did a new fresh install of the Zen 1.55a and Winchester Black responsive...
    Followed the directions to change the Social Media Links per the Read Me...all the icons disappeared and now just html text shows in it's place...

    Is there a Post with a fix for this somewhere, I have searched for hours through the threads...
    Any help would be great!!

    Thanks to all the Programmers for the great eCommerce platform and to Anne for all her creativity!! KUDOS! and
    Thanks in Advance for any help on this!

    I just ran into this same problem on the Winchester Responsive template. Following the instructions to edit the social media links in admin/tools/flexible footer. When added the database the < > " are converted to &LT; &GT; &QUOTE;.

    I haven't dug into the cause, I just edited the col_html_text field text in the flexible_footer_menu table in the database with the correct html.

    Has anyone solved this problem yet? I have the same issue in my footer on my site. That is when you modify the social icons and save, it converts the output to HTML instead of displaying properly. You can see the image I provided:

    Since that's an issue with the Flexible Footer plugin, see that plugins' support thread: https://www.zen-cart.com/showthread....68#post1308468

    Thank you Dr. Byte. I ended up fixing the HTML dirctly in the database as trying to upgrade was a nightmare (at least for me). If anyone is seeing this and has difficulty in trying to upgrade Flexible Footer Menu, you can find this table in phpMyAdmin: Flexible Footer Menu and just update the HTML directly in the database. Its not the proper way, but it's a work around if you have too. This is what worked for me.

    It looks like problem has been around for a while, but I still see this issue. To work around I have to go to the database directly and edit. Has a solution been found yet? It seems like the editor adds additional hidden characters to the HTML.
