Changing the social link’s titles displayed on mouse hover

Here’s a quick snippet to change the title attribute of the social links that’s displayed when the mouse moves over the link’s icon.

By default, it can take two forms :

– for rss : Subscribe to my rss feed

– for the social networks : Follow me on [the social network]

Let’s say you want to switch to ‘our’ instead of ‘my’

add_filter('tc_default_socials' , 'change_link_title');
function change_link_title($socials) {
    foreach ($socials as $key => $value) {
        $socials[$key]['link_title'] = str_replace('Follow me', 'Follow us', $socials[$key]['link_title']);
        $socials[$key]['link_title'] = str_replace('Subscribe to my rss feed', 'Subscribe to our rss feed', $socials[$key]['link_title']);
    return $socials;


Where to paste this code? => in your functions.php file. I strongly recommend to create a child theme. Download a start-up child theme here.
