Hello,

How do I add external links to the social media buttons at the top of the homepage?

Hello,

The social media icons are just in a custom html module that's published to custom_6. So you would change the href to any url you want, for example:

<a href="" target="_blank" class="social_icon ion-social-facebook">[/url]

Just enter the url of your choice in the href="" section.

I don't get it. The code on custom 6 reads as,

 <a target="_blank" class="social_icon ion-social-facebook" rel="noopener noreferrer">[/url]

Should I edit it to be

<a href="" target="_blank" class="social_icon ion-social-facebook">[/url]

What about if I want to change the social media icons? Let's say, I want to add Instagram, instead of using the Pinterest?

And what about if I want to reduce the total number of icons on the custom 6?

Hello,

I don't know what you mean, the code for the social icons is exactly as I gave above. If you need the original code it's also given here:

All you do is enter your own url in the href section.

If you need a different icon that would be custom coding. I would recommend editing editor.css and search for "facebook", that will take you to the area of the css that controls these icons. Just make a copy of one of the icons and change the class name.
