Twenty Seventeen: Add (Messenger) icon to supported social media links

If I include a link starting with in my social media menu, it doesn’t show a messenger icon. It instead shows as a generic link icon.

I have attempted to create an icon for this and registered it so that the theme knows to use it for these links. It’s better than what wordpress shows currently.

Please see attached patch.

Thanks for the ticket and the patch!

The Messenger icon has been revised since 2019, so the patch would need a refresh.

Also, if we add Messenger, we probably should update the Facebook icon as well.

  • Keywords close 2nd-opinion added

Requests for new Twenty Twenty icons were closed last year, in favor of creating a filter (see ticket:48713#comment:7), so perhaps this should be closed as well.

Kinsta describes how to use the Twenty Seventeen filter for any additional SVG icons.

If we decide not to add Messenger, the Facebook icon may still be worth updating.

I agree on the decision to not add Messenger.

Updating the Facebook icon seems reasonable. Might want to confirm all of the icons are current while we are at it. But I'd say this is a low priority task, so leaving as a close candidate.

As has been advised to close this I am going to follow that through and do just that. I will note that the comments of updating the icon on Facebook being made into another ticket still can be done even if this is closed. Thank you everyone for your collaboration on this ticket so far.
