Social Links

Display a list of links to your social accounts with beautiful icons and followers’ counts in pre-defined theme locations, sidebar widget or post content via a shortcode. Add social links for post authors with help of the new user contact fields.

Configuration

  1. Navigate to Settings → Social Links.
  2. Enable the social accounts that you would like to display in the list of social links.
  3. For every added social link a new tab will appear.
