Many themes offer some form of social networking capabilities, from comprehensive to basic links to profile pages. This theme gives you a social menu location within the top header area. Setting up your social menu items is just like the other menus, excerpt you are using the “ Custom Links ” option for each social network.
Let’s take a closer look:
Available Social Networks
- RSS Feed
- Mailto (email)
These social icons are based on the popular font icon set called “Font Awesome“, and is included into the theme. You can also use a plugin for this (free of course). The plugin I recommend is called “Better Font Awesome“.
To continue with this setup, we need to visit the “Basic Theme Setup” tutorials because creating our social menu is standard across all our themes.
Top Search Icon
You will probably notice an magnifying glass icon which is next to the social icons…this is not part of the social group, but it’s there as a toggle based top search form. Click on it to drop down the form and then another click to close it.
