Newbie to Gavick themes and to wordpress in general to I hope I've not missed anything too simply and obvious!!

I see its easy to remove unwanted icon by simply deleting the link from the widget settings. However, I need to have additional links (youtube, vimeo etc).

I found that I could make changes manually in the file and create a new box that appears in the widget settings so I can add a new link. However this seemed to take a lot of time as there are a number of lines I had to re-add to mirror what was shown for one of the the current links. Is this the only way of doing this or is the a simply solution that I've missed?

Also, I've not managed to work out where to save the icons I would like to use so that, for example, it shows a youtube icon I've uploaded rather than a text link saying "youtube".

Many thanks,

Generally there's no additional icons and option to simply add other icons into social widget. You'll have to add e.g. font awesome icons into the Publisher:
or change the existing image of the icons: ... _icons.png

add links into the widget code and add proper css.

I think that it will be easier to use other 3rd party plugin with the social icons in the same social widget area.
