  • This is a question about using the theme.
  • This is a feature request.
  • I believe this to be a bug with the theme.
    • I have updated all gems with bundle update.
    • I have tested locally with bundle exec jekyll build.

Environment informations

  • Minimal Mistakes version: 4.9.0
  • Jekyll version: 3.7.0
  • GitHub Pages hosted: yes
  • Operating system: Windows 10 (using Bash on Linux)

Expected behavior

I have applied the dark skin on my _config.yml and It seems that the icons of the author url's aren't adapted/changed by the dark skin as documention. My expectations was that the twitter, linkedin & github icons are grey icons instead of blue or black icons.

My Jekyll site (local screenshot):

Expected example:

I've verified that the include @import "minimal-mistakes/skins/default"; // skin is defined in the main.scss and on the right place.

Am I missing something in my configuration?

Steps to reproduce the behavior

@kwlin Good catch. The fix until I get to it is adding this:

.social-icons .svg-inline--fa {
  color: inherit !important;

@mmistakes Thanks for the fix. I'll see it in the new version of gem :)
