Next, you need to tell WordPress where you would like you media links to show. Our theme has 2 media link locations, one in the header, and one in the footer. In this example, I’ll show you the footer option. Below the Menu Name, you will find Menu Locations. Here is where you decide where to show the links on the front end of your site. For the footer, choose Social Menu – Footer Right If you only have social media links in this menu area, the links will left justify. To make them right justified, add a Left Footer menu. This is an ideal place to add links about your company, your policies, and refund option.
