If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I have activated the Facebook icon that appears in the search box area and following advice elsewhere on this forum i have added the folowing code in:
<li class='facebook'><a href="www.facebook.com/sosalfriston">Facebook</a>
except the problem is while it looks right the link actually gets interpreted as:
for some reason WordPress or the theme is adding the blogs own location in at the start of the link automatically which breaks it.
Change it to:
<li class='facebook'><a href="http://www.facebook.com/sosalfriston">Facebook</a></li>
You have to specify the protocol or the browser will interpret it as a subdirectory.
