Support » Themes and Templates » [Resolved] Social Icons
3 years, 1 month ago
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.
<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>
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 🙂
