    Hello,

    Have you created a social menu and assigned it to the ‘Social Menu’ location?

    To do so you would need to navigate to Appearance > Menu and create a new menu. You would assign it to the ‘Social Menu’ location by selecting the box for this at the bottom of your menu. Then you can create custom menu items for each social media site you would like to add. For example,

    Facebook:
    URL: http://facebook.com/yourcustomfacebooklinks
    Link Text: Facebook

    Twitter:
    URL: http://twitter.com/yourcustomtwitterlinks
    Link Text: Twitter

    Email:
    URL: mailto:(email visible only to moderators and staff)
    Link Text: email

    And so forth until you have added all your icons.

    Thank you,

    Rebecca

    Hello Bhargav,

    You do not have a social menu created if I navigate to Appearance > Menu.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    The social media widgets are set to display in the footer as in the demo. The only options to show social media links in your widgets area is to follow the instructions listed here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/add-social-media-buttons-to-your-sidebar-or-footer/

    Thank you!

    Rebecca
