How To Use The Social Links Element

The Social Links Element is a quick and easy way to add your own social media links anywhere on your site.

Step 1. Ensure Avada Builder, or Avada Live is active.

Step 2. Create, or choose the Column you wish to add the Element into. Click on Add New Element.

Step 3. Locate the ‘Social Links’ element and click it to add it to the page and bring up its options window.

Step 4. Configure the Social Links Element to your liking. There are styling options for the icons, including the ability to use either branded or custom colors for the icons, and then, once you have styled the icons the way you like, there are fields to add your own profile links for every major Social Media platform. You can also add an email icon, and any custom social icons specified in the Theme Options.

Step 5. Once you have finished configuring the options, click ‘Save’.

You can deploy as many individual Elements in pages and posts as you need, there is no limit. Within each of the Elements, you will see a tab or tabs that house an array of options that make it possible for you to configure each Element independently, and greatly enhance your flexibility and creative options.

Note: The Default setting will use the global settings assigned for this element at Options > Avada Builder Elements > Social Links. Also, please note that the displayed options screens below show ALL the available options for the element.
