This theme offers two social menu locations, one at the top and the other in the footer. Both have their own unique styling:
The Top Social Menu
Footer Social Menu
Creating a Social Menu
You have the choice of creating one social menu and assigning it to both the top and footer menu locations. We talked about creating menus in another tutorial, but this will add a bit more to it as it relates to the Salal theme.
Go to Appearance >> Menus
Click on the “Add Menu” link at the top and name your menu; for example, Social Menu. After clicking the “Create Menu” button, you will then get a group of menu location settings–choose the social menu location you want to display it in.
NOTE: These are special menu locations with styling meant only for your social icon links. You are also limited to 1-level; no submenus.
Begin Adding Social Links
Just like any menu item you add to a menu, you will do the same for this one. The only exception is that when you add your social profile page URL, the menu label will be the name of the social network. We will use the Rough Pixels twitter as an example:
