  • Hi @dieselguy,

    When you navigate to Appearance > Menus in your site’s /wp-admin area, do you see a checkbox next to “Social Links” under “Menu Settings”? Here’s a screenshot of what that checkbox should look like:

    If you’re seeing that option, have you create a new menu containing custom links to your social networks and checked that “Social Links” option?

    If you’ve followed all of those steps correctly but the menu isn’t showing up to bottom right corner of your site, please share a link with me and I’ll be happy to look into the code to see what’s going on.

    Thanks!

    Hi Thanks for the reply, my menu settings loko like this

    Thanks for the sharing the screenshot!

    That’s the default view when no custom menu has been created. You’re currently using the default menu (which contains your published pages) but you’ll need to create a custom menu to see the extra options.

    Click the “create a new menu” link towards the top of that page and then create a new menu named “Social Links” or similar. You’ll then be able to add custom links to that menu and assign it as your site’s “Social Links” menu.

    Let me know if that’s clear.

    Hi many thanks for the reply sorry to be a pain, yeah i tried this before but no luck, just done it again and this is what i have. There is no option to display it in the footer etc?

    Hi there,

    Do you have a different theme to Penscratch active on your site? I’m seeing Header as one of the locations in the screenshot but that isn’t an option within Penscratch.

    The two menu locations within Penscratch are Primary Menu and Social Links.

    If you do have Penscratch active, then could you try deleting your copy of the theme and then installing a fresh version?

    Thanks!

    @dieselguy Could you please confirm that Jetpack is active on your site? The social menu comes from that plugin. The support document you linked does not mention this step, as it’s geared to WordPress.com sites, not self-hosted ones.

    And could you also provide a link to your site if possible, so we can confirm what theme you’re actually running, since Siobhan pointed out earlier that the Header option that shows in your screenshot may indicate that you’re running a different theme.

    I love this theme, so clean. I would love to have special social menu links I can customize the icons for.

    At the moment they show as just a hyperlinked button. No way of customizing.

    Can you help?

    I have disabled it for now.

    Oh website is ghozali.net thanks.

    @zocster – I see a social menu in your footer already, so maybe you got this sorted?
