How to set social icons and links in the Public Institutions WordPress theme?
The Public Institutions WordPress theme’s demo displays Twitter, Facebook, and Google plus social icons in the “Footer” section.
For this purpose, we’ve used the PE Social widget. Icons links can be easily modified using this widget.
Add the PE Social Icons widget
To find and add the widget to your site, open your WordPress panel, and navigate to “Appearance” and to “Widgets”. Find PE Social on the list and click it. Now you can choose the position, where you want to place it. At the end click the “Add widget” button.
Let’s see the widget main settings:
Edit or add a social icon item.
The social icon link can be modified in the item edition field. I will show it on the Facebook icon example:
You can “Add new item” or edit the existing one. As you see, I’ve used the “Edit” button for the Facebook item.
After clicking the edit field, the box with “name, icon, and URL” appeared. These settings allow you to add any social media link of your choice. That is very easy to configure. After filling in the options click “Save item” button and click "Save" - the widget button.
For icons use font awesome icons classes -> https://fontawesome.com/icons?d=gallery
