Creating the Social links menu
Some themes come with a specially designed Custom Menu for displaying social icons on your site. It automatically detects the URLs of your menu links and shows the appropriate icon. Depending on your theme, the social icons menu can appear in the header or in the footer area, or in both areas.
Adding the Social Menu
The process of creating a social menu is very similar to the process of adding the Custom Menu:
- Create a new Custom Menu, and assign it to the Social menu location.
- Add links to each of your social services using the Links panel.
- Save your menu when you are ready.
Now your site should display social media icons for the services you’ve added to your social links menu. Note, the theme might not support all the social networks. If the social network is not supported in the Social menu then the menu will show a default icon for the link.
