WordPress Tutorial: How to Set Up the Social Links Menu

August 22, 2019


Hi and welcome to WordPress.com. This video will show you how to set up
a social links menu on your website or blog. Social media icons can be displayed
on your site in different ways. Some themes offer a special custom menu
for adding your social media icons. This allows visitors to quickly access
your social profiles like Twitter, Facebook LinkedIn, Instagram, and even
Dribbble and Vimeo. The first step is to validate if your theme
supports a social links menu. Click on My Sites, and on Menus,
and then click on the menu locations. Next, click on Add a Menu
and give it a name. Then we’ll add each social profile item
as a custom link. Let’s add Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If you don’t know your social media username,
you can retrieve the url on your profile in the browser bar, and copy paste it
into the custom link menu. Next, set the location of that menu
to the social menu, and save. Take a look at your brand new links. For more tips and tricks,
