How to Create Social Links Menu

Social Links Menu automatically converts menu items to corresponding icons for popular social profiles. The menu will give your website visitors easy access to your social media profiles. To create the menu, do as follows:

  1. Via the WordPress Dashboard navigate to the Appearance » Customize » Menus.
  2. Click on the Create New Menu button in the Menus section.
  3. In the Menu Name text field, at the top of the area that reveals, enter a unique name for your menu.
  4. In the Menu Locations settings, mark the Social Links Menu check-box.
  5. Clicking on the Next button will display a new +Add Items button that will be located below the name of the menu. 
  6. Click on the +Add Items button to start adding URLs to your social profiles.
  7. In the new area that reveals select the Custom Links settings.
  8. In the URL text field add URL to the social media profile you want to display. For example, if the link to your Facebook profile is https://www.facebook.com/SinatraWP, you would copy that into the URL field. You can also add a link text, however only corresponding supported icons will be displayed in the menu. Add as many links as you’d like.
  9. Publish to save changes to the live website.
