    Hi there,
    I’m currently toying with social media icons and was wondering if it is possible to move the social media (eg. Facebook) from the top-right of page to replace the omni search at the right of the nav bar?
    I currently have a child theme running, in case that helps.

    Thanks for your help.



    1. First, you’ll need to setup a child theme if you haven’t already:

    2. Copy over header.php to the child theme.

    3. Open up header.php (

    4. Cut the following:

    if ( $options['social'] ){
    echo '<div id="social">';
    if ($options['googleurl']!="")
    echo '<a href="'.esc_url($options['googleurl']).'" id="social-google"><img src="'.get_template_directory_uri().'/images/social/google.png" alt="Google+" /></a>';
    if ($options['linkedinurl']!="")
    echo '<a href="'.esc_url($options['linkedinurl']).'" id="social-linkedin"><img src="'.get_template_directory_uri().'/images/social/linkedin.png" alt="LinkedIn" /></a>';
    if ($options['twitterurl']!="")
    echo '<a href="'.esc_url($options['twitterurl']).'" id="social-twitter"><img src="'.get_template_directory_uri().'/images/social/twitter.png" alt="Twitter" /></a>';
    if ($options['facebookurl']!="")
    echo '<a href="'.esc_url($options['facebookurl']).'" id="social-facebook"><img src="'.get_template_directory_uri().'/images/social/facebook.png" alt="Facebook" /></a>';
    echo ''.do_shortcode( stripslashes(wp_kses_post($options['custicons'])) ).'';
    echo '</div>'; }

    and paste over:

    <?php if ( $options['search'] ){ get_search_form(); } ?>

    5. Update us at this point, you may require more assistance for styling.



    Absolutely perfect! Thank you kindly. I have removed the original php code in the <head>, and your code snippet works lovely.

    I should be able to style without any further issues, but I’ll let you know if I need any further help.

    Thanks again.



    You’re welcome.
