Hello! I have just completed the lesson for creating menus and social menus. I was able to successfully link my social accounts, but the social menu automatically appears at the bottom of the page (in the footer) in the 2020 theme.
How do I adjust so that my social links appear in the header as demonstrated in the video using the 2019 theme?
Thank you in advance!
Great question. The location of the Social Links menu is determined by the active theme. It’s not an object that can be repositioned anywhere, at least not without editing the underlying code of your theme.
Some themes also include a Header widget area. That would enable you to install a plugin like Simple Social Icons, then add those icons as a widget in your Header. Unfortunately, the Twenty Twenty theme only includes two widget areas, and they’re both in the Footer.
So, if you’re committed to using the Twenty Twenty theme, your best bet would be to hire a coder and have them create a custom child theme for you that includes a Social Links menu area in the Header, instead of the Footer. You can start a conversation with a WordPress developer here, to find out how they might charge for this simple tweak.
But you may find that simply choosing a more flexible theme, like Astra, will serve you better in the long-term, and offer you much better control over the design of your site.
Hope this helps!
