    Just curious, how would I add the 'social icons' in the nav menu like in WP Magazine?

    Thanks in advance, great theme!

    I try to figure out the same.

    Maybe we have to add an unordered list with class "social" manually in header.php right before the closing </nav> tag.

    <ul class="social">
    <li class="twitter"><a target="_blank" href="http://twitter.com">Twitter</a></li>
    <li class="facebook"><a target="_blank" href="http://facebook.com/">Facebook</a></li>
    <li class="feed"><a target="_blank" href="http://example.com/feed/">Feed</a></li>
    </ul>

    Take a look at the html source of the page.

    Maybe there is a better solution using a plugin, but this way the icons show up.

    I can't find any settings in the administration area for setting links to social media profiles.

    Right now, while i wrote this post, there came the right answer from the theme developer: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/social-sharing-buttons-on-the-menu-bar

    Yes, an action in a plugin or child theme is much better than changing the theme's header.php file, and it'll keep working even when the theme is updated. Thanks for helping out Addisco :)
