Help with Advanced Custom Fields and Fontawesome

Hi there,

I’m trying to figure out how I can link a social media account to a custom field that is a fontawesome icon field.

So I can add the fields, i.e. Facebook profile, Instagram profile etc to my template, but I cannot fill in a corresponding profile link.
It will just display a social media icon, but in the back-end I see nowhere where I can insert or link a social media profile.

Any help is much appreciated.


  1. Please provide some screenshots of what you’re referring to…. you’re not making any sense.

  2. Two options, use two fields, an icon field and a url field – in your code to display front end, grab the url field, and wrap the icon field output in your href.

    Alternatively, just use a url field, and either set the icon via css or hard code it in your output.
