How can I make the social icons open in a new window. I would rather not take people off my site for external links.
Also.. any plans to add youtube to that list? Currently, in my sandbox, I use the video link for youtube but the icon might confuse visitors…
Dig the theme .. very nicely done.Daniel TaraKeymaster
You can find those links in sidebar-header.php, just add the attribute target=”_blank” to the links. This is considered a usability issue and will not be added to the theme by default, nor as an option.
More social media icons are planned, among them YouTube.matthewmoranParticipant
Okay.. thanks for pointing out where they are…
Thanks again for the great theme…igenParticipant

I have a question about this topic.
I changed the codes of the social icons in the file sidebar-header.php, as explained hereabove, but when I want to upload them again with FileZilla to my website, it doesn’t succeed 🙁 It’s said : permission denied, can’t open the file.
Can somebody help me please ?
First off all I want to express my respect for the awesome Pinboard theme!
I’m stuck at the ‘redirecting’ of the social media icons to a blank page… What am I doing wrong, because the mentioned solutions don’t work for me…
Thanks in advance!VeerleParticipant

Thank you for your help
This is a permissions issue on your server. If you’re logging in as the owner, you should be able to write your files to the server.
You could either try to change the permissions on your directory (in FZ, right-click on WordPress folder and choose File Permissions, change Owner Permissions to Read/Write) or contact your web host.
