    Hi there, first off, you need to create the Custom Links in your menu for the social media services you wish to add. I see you have a FB icon and an email icon in your media library. If you want additional services, you will need to upload icons for those as well.

    Once you have the menu items created and have the icons in your media library (if you want additional) post back here to let us know and we can help with the code.

    We have a couple of support documents on activating and using Portfolios. Portfolios is already active on your site, so the following will get you going on using them.

    Before we can proceed with the social icons, you need to do this:

    @catezapp, I need you to go to Appearance > Menu and add in the links for Facebook and your email using the Custom Links function in the menu.

    For the email address, use this as a link and replace youremailaddress with your actual email address. For the labels on the FB and email entries in your custom menu, you can use anything you wish as we will be hiding those with CSS and inserting the images instead.

    mailto:youremailaddress

    For the images you can use the files i downloaded on the media library.

    Yes I know, but I don’t at this point have a place to put the images since you have not created the entries in the menu. I don’t know the email address or where you want your facebook icon to link to, so I can’t create the menu items for you.
