Social Media Icons on top of Navigation Bar

Hey there :),

first of all: Thank you for you great theme!

What i want to do is adding Social Media Icons on top of the Navigation Bar.

Like here: http://demo.athemes.com/sydney-pro/

I’ve already tried it with using the Menu Icons Plugin. But how do I get the Icons on top of the Nav Bar?

Thank you very much!!

Hello there,

It isn’t incorporated with any extra plugin. What you should do firstly is to enable header contact info by going to Appearance > Customize > Sydney Pro: Extra options > Header contact info; and hit the save button.

Secondly, you have to create social menu in the custom menu (Appearance > Menus). Create a new menu (you can use any name), then use Custom Links type of menu in the options listed in the left site of menu composer box. In the URL field, enter your social profile URL address, for example: http://facebook.com/yourbusinesspage. In the Navigation Label field, just enter Facebook or any name that you wish. After you’ve done creating your last social menu item, then tick the “Header social” checkbox in the “Menu Settings” section. Lastly, save menu.

Hello @kharisblank!
Like you can see, there ain’t any “Header social” checkbox.


Or am I looking for the wrong place?

Are you running the latest version of Sydney Pro theme?

Hello there,

You’re still running the older version priors Sydney Pro v.2 in which the update notice turned off. Here are the steps to upgrade to SP 2. Please advised that it got a lot of upgrade include major design changes. You can read the complete change logs here.
