Adding shop and subscribe icons to a social media links menu

All of our themes include an icon menu for your social media links. In addition to branded social media platform icons, your menu can support shopping bag and envelope icons, linking out to a shop or LiketoKnow.it page, as well as to a Subscribe page on your blog.


TO ADD THESE ICONS:

(Presidio, Rania, Miramar, Brevier, and Archer users)

1. Go to Appearance > Customize.

2. Navigate to the Additional Menu Options tab.

3. In the fields provided, add in any social media platforms you wish to feature. You’ll notice that typing in instagram.com/yourinstagramhandle automatically populates an Instagram icon in the menu in your theme preview.

4. For a shopping bag icon: pasting /shop behind any URL will add a shopping bag icon. For example, if you have a page on your blog called yourblogname.com/shop, simply paste this URL into the field, and the icon will appear.

5. For an envelope icon: pasting /subscribe behind any URL will add an envelope icon. So, if you have a page on your blog called yourblogname.com/subscribe, simply paste this URL into the field, and the icon will appear.

Here’s an example of how your Additional Menu Options links might look:

You will need to have these pages created, so that you can direct readers to the appropriate place. You can create a new page for a Shop or Subscribe page by going to Pages > Add New. Be sure that the Permalink for the page reflects the URL structures listed above.


FOR PEARL USERS:

1. Go to Appearance > Customize.

2. Navigate to the Header Options > Social Media.

3. Follow steps 3-5 above. Additionally, look for explainers within the tab that showcase additional icons you can use. Click the down arrow to expand each explainer.
