Social Links Shortcode

The Total theme includes a Social Links shortcode [vcex_social_links] that can be used to display social links anywhere on the site. Below are the main parameters that can be used with this element.

Note: You can always insert the Social Links shortcode via the WPBakery Page Builder when editing a post/page. But if you need to add the element somewhere where you don’t have access to the builder (such as the Customizer) you can then use a standard shortcode as shown below (or you can insert it on a blank page using WPBakery and then copy the shortcode via text mode).

Sample Usage:

[vcex_social_links twitter="twitter.com" facebook="facebook.com" instagram="instagram.com"]

Shortcode Parameters:

Below are the “main” parameters that can be used with the vcex_social_links shortcode. To view all parameters please see the example usage here or use the element with the WPBakery page builder.
