@using umbraco.NodeFactory;
@using umbraco.MacroEngines;
@using System.Configuration;
@{
...
    string propertyName = "PROPERTYNAME"; //set the property name in case it was changed
...

If you have problems loading the package, change your maxRequestLength

 <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" enableVersionHeader="false"  maxRequestLength="32768"  />

If you intent to install the Themes in a different folder, make sure to update your web.config with the path (DEFAULT IS ~/usercontrols/themes/):

<appSettings>
   <add key="SocialMediaThemeFolder" value="~/NEWPATH/"/>
...

In order to run the Demo, update your NodeID for the installed Content

<article>
  <header>
    <h2>Social Media Channels Demo</h2> 
      <umbraco:Macro NodeId="NODEID#" Alias="SocialMediaChannels" runat="server">
       </umbraco:Macro>
  </header>
</article>
Use the Xml Theme Generator to create your own themes!
Create a folder with your icons, run the Xml Theme Generator, save the xml, then upload your new package to the Themes Folder inside Umbraco. It will be automatically picked up by the Social Media Channels Manager.
