Shortcodes – Social Media Links

In order to show social media links within pages or in information cards or team member descriptions, use the lt_social_menu shortcode.

[lt_social_menu name="Social - Abby" class="brandcolors"]

Start by going to Appearance > Menus and create a new menu. You can name it whatever you like. Enter each of your social media URLs as a “Custom Link”. You can enter whatever you like for the Link Text. It will be automatically replaced by the relevant social media icon.

Now use the new menu name in the shortcode above. The class parameter can be used to specify which colors you want to use for the menu:

  • brandcolors: show the social media brand icons in their actual colors.
  • blue: shows the social media icons in a blue circle with white icons.
  • black: shows the social media icons in a black circle with white icons.
  • transparent: shows the social media icons as white icons and a transparent background. Suitable for use on dark backgrounds or image backgrounds.

An example of this can be seen on the team page.
