Social Media Integration
You can use any favorite Social Media WordPress plugin with VORTEX and display your social media icons on pages and posts as per any other WP theme.

You can also insert the social media plugin into a sidebar widget.

I like to keep this process simple by using "Html Social Share Buttons" plugin but you can decide which suits you best.

You can also insert social media icons into the Top Thin Banner by using a suitable social media plugin. Many plugins feature icons that are too large and don't look very streamlined or suited to the Thin Banner styling, but there is one plugin which we use and recommend called "Html Social Share Buttons", by author Alimuzzaman Alim.
The later versions of the plugin use larger icons 32px size which look too big in the Thin Banner but you can change this bu opening the file of the plugin and editing the style.css file as follows:

Here is the location of the file on your server (access via FTP or cPanel or amend prior to uploading):

Then scroll down to where you see the width & height sizes for the flat icons:

.zmshbt.flat a {
width: 32px;
height: 32px;
display: block;
margin: 10px;

Change those two sizes to 21px and change the "margin" size from 10px down to 2px, then save the file and refresh the page (you might need to clear cache or you could still see the original larger sized icons). Then you'll see you icons reduced back down to the smaller size.
