Oops, my social media icons are gone This post is outdated

New user mistake, decided to work on my social media stuff. Read a little, then I deleted all the buttons for twitter, etc, that were already in the footer area of my themes, which is Minimal. I was trying to add my twitter code. Guess I'll read some more tutorials before moving along. But can I get the code back and start over? Is there somewhere I can find it & cut & paste them back?  So much for progress today.

Hey Sandra!

We've got a built in option to restore older versions of your theme for cases just like this :)

When you're editing a template, you'll see a link at the top of the page that says "older versions". If you click there, you'll be presented with a drop down menu of all the previous versions of that file. Just select the version you want to revert back to and hit save.

I'd also recommend checking out our Support Doc on customizing your theme. It's got all the tips and tricks you'll need when making changes in the Template Editor - docs.shopify.com/manual/configuration/store-customization.

I hope this helps out, but if you run into anything else you can shoot me an email directly at justin.reist@shopify.com.

Thanks for your quick reply- I didn't think I could be the only noob that had made that mistake! I'll do what you suggested and then continue reading before I make more changes. Still looking for an icon file on my old MAC, may need to use the husbands PC for that file. Again, thanks!
