I would like to add custom social media icons to my header menu, plus two sites that are not listed in Customizer. I thought I could add this as HTML, but there doesn’t seem to be a text area, just the social links and the header menu. Thank you!February 25, 2018 at 12:18 pm #1360485
For that, please ensure that you are on the latest version of the theme and visit Appearance->Customize->Social Links->Additional Social Icons section and manage accordingly? Thanks.February 25, 2018 at 12:25 pm #1360487
Hi, Bishal. Thanks for responding. I have updated the theme, but the Additional Social Icons section only gives me the option to use Font Awesome icons. I want to upload PNGs. Also, that section only allows for input of five social icons, and I have six.February 25, 2018 at 12:33 pm #1360494
For that, maybe if you can code on your own then, you can achieve the same via the child theme updating the ‘header.php’ file as required. Thanks.February 25, 2018 at 12:38 pm #1360495
Hi, Bishal. I can do the HTML, but can you explain how to add to the header.php file? Thanks!February 26, 2018 at 5:01 am #1360573
You can learn on the child theme here: https://themegrill.com/blog/tutorial-creating-wordpress-child-theme/. You can just copy the file ‘header.php’ over to the child theme and then, modify as required. Hope you are clear on this. Thanks.February 26, 2018 at 5:22 am #1360586
Thanks, Bishal. I know how to create a child theme, but I am not sure what code to use in the header.php file to add the social icons.February 26, 2018 at 5:41 am #1360594
You can just add the required HTML code in the required place of header in the same file and check. If you are confused on this and want to add beside the social icons then, you can place that HTML code in before the
<nav id="top-site-navigation" class="small-menu" class="clearfix">code and check for the same. Thanks.February 26, 2018 at 5:43 am #1360595
Thank you, Bishal. This seems straightforward. I will check back if I have any problems.February 28, 2018 at 1:47 pm #1360994
Hi again, Bishal. I’m hoping you can help me with this a little further, please. I was able to add the icons, but my logo has disappeared. I would like the icons to display on the right rather than the left and to add some padding on top. I tried defining these properties in the style.css file, but it doesn’t do anything.

For that, we may need the link to your site so that we could better check on this issue. Thanks.March 1, 2018 at 11:19 am #1361126
Thanks, Bishal. It’s https://bcbookprizesdemo.ca/.March 1, 2018 at 11:38 am #1361143
Can you tell us about how you modified the ‘header.php’ file? Have you done exactly the same as stated previously by u? And for the second issue, can you add some custom class to the social menu so that the CSS can be applied to it? Thanks.March 1, 2018 at 11:48 am #1361145
Hi, Bishal. I tried to follow what you said before about where to add the HTML. But this is a little complicated for me. Maybe I could order a custom development?March 1, 2018 at 12:00 pm #1361146
I am also wanting to have a little bit of text added beside the logo. Is this something you could do as well?
