    I have the Business Directory child theme installed. I’d like to know how to edit the links for the social media buttons on the bottom of the home page. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
    I found the place you are describing but I’m unable to figure out how to link the buttons to my profiles?

    One of the better features of the responsive layout. Of course, if you are suing more than the the six listed, there is no clear way to add more. Easy to change any that you want, but not add more.

    Also, there is no way that I can see to add these buttons to the top of the page. If you want your visitors engaging with you on social media, the best place for these buttons are near the top.

    Hello Danielle,
    Only the 6 social media are provided with the theme currently.You can also add own social media using a plugin (so many available at wordpress.org/plugins) or custom code

    Thanks Josh, too many plugins just slow down the site. Must everything we want to do use plugins?

    Hello Danielle,
    Like I mentioned above you can use a plugin or custom code.Please use custom code.You can enter custom code under Theme Setup >General Setup >Custom CSS
    Alternately you can enter your code in the file Appearance >Editor >footer-menu.php

    Thanks Josh, where do I find such custom code? I am not a coder though I can figure things out if pointed in the right direction.
