In the settings of the template under basic you can enter your urls for the social network.

I tried to enter Instagram (which is one of the most popular socialnetworks), but it is not implemented.

Therefor you guys has implemented a custom field which can be used for another social netork icons.

But where the hell is this field?

Thanks for helping me to get this option

Done , I have sent you a file via PM
Remember to keep that file in case of next update
For all others - it's quite easy to add Social Custom field where you can use: fa-instagram URL
Files which you have to edit:
Edit line 77 and add:

if( $custom ) {
$explt_custom = explode(' ', $custom);
$html .= '<li><a target="_blank" href="'. $explt_custom[1] .'"><i class="fa '. $explt_custom[0] .'"></i></a></li>';

Edit line 175 and add

<field name="custom" type="text" label="Custom FA icon" description="Insert fontawesome icon class with URL, eg. fa-instagram" class="child social_icons social_icons_1" />

you have to update the solution. at line 34 after vk line in social.php have to add this code otherwise fa icon will not appear in frontpage

$custom = $this->helix3->getParam('custom');

alternative way:
1) Disable default social icons
2) create a custom module
3) put there font-awesome 4.7 class icons, and links
4) publish on this same position top1 or top2 as you need

I have the same issue. I added the code and can see "CUSTOM FA ICON" now in my template, but nothing is showing on my website. What else should I be looking into?

Read again both of my tips.
I don't know what you added, so I cannot predict why it doesn't work.

fa fa-instagram
