Set Up A Social Network Menu

Last updated 20 days ago

Social media icons can be displayed on your site’s top bar area. These tiny social media buttons link to services like Twitter and Facebook, allowing visitors to access your social profiles quickly.

The Conj - eCommerce WordPress Theme offers a special custom menu (labeled Social Menu) for adding your social media icons.

You need to define a menu before adding any social media icons to it.
