I’d love to have a couple of social icons in the Primary Navigation Extras area.
The best I could find was a plugin: “Genesis Social Profiles Menu”… but alas, it doesn’t work. Firebug inspection reveals that the CSS my be incorrect. Due to Genesis changes?… not sure.
Regardless… what is the best way to achieve this?
Thanks for any tips!

After much struggling… I did get it to work… just now.
I had to add the correct CSS to the plugin’s CSS file.
Thanks again for your willingness to help.May 21, 2014 at 9:24 am #106162
Care to share how you did this as I’m also finding that the icons are not showing in the nav barMay 21, 2014 at 1:33 pm #106202
Very simple… in the end.
I simply created a menu of type “custom” where I added my FB url. I then added the class “facebook-prl-s24″ in the class field for this menu. I then played around with the CSS until it appears as I wanted it. I did the same for Twitter.
I hope this helps.May 21, 2014 at 1:34 pm #106203This reply has been marked as private.October 9, 2015 at 8:47 pm #167779
I’ve tried with that class but can’t get it to work. I have read that in a Brad tutorial. Can you help me with the social icons at the navbar please? thanksOctober 10, 2015 at 6:31 am #167787
Do you have a url to your site so I can have a look?October 10, 2015 at 8:29 am #167791October 10, 2015 at 9:11 am #167794
So, you mean you want the FB icon to replace the characters “FB” that are currently in your nav?October 10, 2015 at 9:36 am #167798
Pluzito, After you answer the previous question,
1. Did you install the Genesis Social Profiles Menu Plugin? I used this.
2. For your site, you may try: https://wordpress.org/plugins/menu-social-icons/
Let me know how you make out.

Thanks for your answer. I want the social icons before the search box just like this: http://www.complex.com/
The FB link is just a try. I couldn’t find Genesis Social Profiles Menu Plugin :S While I’ll try the Menu Social Icons. Is there any chance to do this without installing a plugin :S
Thanks in advance for your time and adviceOctober 10, 2015 at 11:00 am #167801
Hmmm…. The way complex did it could have been via a plugin or via the theme.
I used the Genesis plugin I told you about… to get the css really. I could have probably done without it. and for the site I worked on, it was in the menu bar.
On your theme, is the Search in a widget position?October 10, 2015 at 11:27 am #167802
The search box in my site is in the navigation menu extra position. Would be perfect I could add the icons there.October 10, 2015 at 11:43 am #167803
Without seeing the backend/theme, it’s difficult to assist here.
If you can add custom code in that space and if you don’t want to add a plugin, then all you have to do is add an linked FB icon in the area.
