I am a new user of Simple Catch theme and my website is ohoque.com. I added several social links at Theme Options > Social Links but none of the social icon is showing in my header. Is there something I did wrong or what’s going on? Please excuse me as I am just stepping into WordPress and I don’t have much experience.
I am using the following plugins if this helps at all: 1. Akismet 2. Code Snippets 3. Contact Form 7 4. Google Analytics by Yoast 5. Post Thumbnail Editor 6. WP Google Fonts
@mhoque0428: I see that you have change the code directly in the theme directory ‘simple-catch’. So, you must have edited header.php file where there is call for social icons. Please restore the theme files and you will get the featured back.
Also you can not supposed to edit/add any code inside theme directory, as these edits will be reverted back to original when you update the theme and your customization will be gone. So, if you want to edit any files or functions then you need to build child theme and edit it. For child theme read this http://catchthemes.com/blog/create-child-theme-wordpress/
Thanks a lot Sakin. I am still trying to learn php and I definitely messed up the header file. However, after your response I could fix what I did wrong in the header file and corrected it for now. I will look into the child theme resource you provided and will try to update my site the right way.
Again, I am very grateful for your help. Best Regards.
@mhoque0428: Thanks for your appreciation and yes we all are learning new everyday. Life is a learning curve. Cheers 🙂
