Overview

Social Media Icons

In the Social Media Icons panel, found at Avada > Options > Social Media > Social Media Icons, you will find a repeater field, to which you can add one social network at a time. You can add as many social links as you require. You can also add custom social links and icons here, which you can read more about below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The social media icons and links that you insert on this tab will be the icons that will be displayed on your header or footer.
