Social Media Icons not showing up in header

    LOVE this theme. So thankful for the work that was put into it. 🙂

    Question: I have my social links in the footer, but in the header section, there is no sign of them anywhere. If I have a sidebar they show up after the “Follow”; however, I don’t always wants Sidebars on my page.

    Any know how of what I should do to see my lil’ (fabulous) icons appear in my header section (like, very far right of the top line)?

    Thanks!!

  • Hi! Glad to hear 🙂

    The social icons do not appear in the header in this theme by default, so you’d need to make code edits.

    Edit header.php with a child theme and put this where you want the social links to appear:

    <?php alx_social_links() ; ?>

    And then apply css styling as you wish.

    Is there anyway to make them “float”? Like, when I scroll down the page, they will still be visible?

    I’ve used the code and it worked yay!

    Hi, I have added social links in theme options, however they still do not appear in the sidebar after ‘Follow:’. Am I missing something?

    Problem solved – wrong icon code.

    Hi! Quick question. I have no experience with CSS, is there a way to align the social links with the search icon, in the header? When I add the code from above, it puts the icons below the search, but I’d like them to be alongside each other.
    Thanks so much!
