Sorry if I’m missing the obvious but I am totally not seeing how to add the social media icons to the header. Help!The blog I need help with is totallycontent.netNovember 29, 2013 at 6:10 am #143785
Edit to my last question – I meant that I am trying to add social media icons to the main menu (as shown in the demo), not the header. Sorry for the confusion.November 29, 2013 at 3:50 pm #143794November 29, 2013 at 3:58 pm #143795
Yes, I finally figured out how to add them; however, I had to edit my navigation labels to have fewer characters because they started wrapping when I added the icons. Is there a way to avoid that? Thanks!November 29, 2013 at 4:30 pm #143801
Hi there, do you mean that the menu went onto two lines so it wouldn’t overlap with the social-media buttons? The only way I can think of to avoid that might be to reduce the size of the menu text, but then that might make them harder to read on some screens. Another option could be to reposition the icons so they’re below the menu instead of to the right.
