Puro themes make use of a social icon menu system managed from AppearanceMenus. To check whether your Puro theme has a social icon menu location/s, navigate to AppearanceMenus and check the Theme Locations sub-heading under Menu Settings. Follow the steps below to make use of this social icon display system.
Each Puro theme will format its social icon menu a little differently. Below is a demo menu from our first theme, also called Puro.
The following networks are currently supported by this functionality:
- Feed (RSS)
- Google Plus
- Stack Overflow
If you’d like to see what these icons look like beforehand, please check the Font Awesome icon library.
Navigate to AppearanceMenus and click the create a new menu link. Choose a name for your menu an”d click the blue Save Menu button. Next, look at the left column and locate the Custom Links tab, open it and add your first network. For example, if we were adding a Twitter icon for Puro Themes we’d add the following to the URL field:
The URL should be a link to your profile page on one of the support networks above. The Link Text can be anything you’d like, it won’t be displayed on the front end of your site.
RSS links should contain the word feed with a forward slash before and after the word feed. For example:
Once you’ve added your networks, scroll down to the bottom of the page and locate the Theme Locations sub-heading under the Menu Settings heading. Locate the social icon menu location/s applicable to your theme and select the ones you want. Lastly, click the Save Menu button again. The final result might look something like the below image.
