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.

To start, add the element into your desired column, and 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 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 Global Options.

Element 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.
