I recently began work on my first Shopify theme. My hope is for it to be very customizable without having to edit any code. Even so there will be some aspects that that can only be changed via a code editor. That said, this is the first in a planned series of tutorials dealing with a wide range of topics, all of which will be based on the theme I'm currently developing, Just the Text.
For now we're going to look at editing the settings.html and social.liquid files in order to add more options for social icons. Even though we're focusing specifically on the social icons, much of what you'll see can be applied throughout your settings page and on non-Shopify sites as well.
To start you'll need to decide which icon(s) you want to add. Open the the Icon Legend to view the list of available icons, and be sure to make note of the unicode in the brackets next to label. We'll be using it later.
