Thank you Tony. This does indeed remove the social media icons.
I’m assuming then they are gone from every article, including my blog pages. It seems to me that the hundreds of “help” videos that show you how to add a page by creating a new article are misleading us all. If I have to remove social media from all my blogs, or manually put it back, just so I don’t have it on a “page” I created, that seems pointless. I’m not sure that articles are really the best way to add extra linked pages to a site. I think the way I chose to add pages is therefore better, ie. I have made new pages in Quix. I just need to work out the url/ linking problem and I’ll be very happy with that option!
