The contact/social media buttons at the top (using corona theme) within
are having issues linking correctly. I think part of the issue is a site URL issue that i’ve not worked out yet involving with the site being in a subfolder of a primary domain. (so any tips you site admins can give me about how to better my site paths for a wordpress)
For example the literal structure is this: webroot/subfolder/wordpress
so when clicking on the social media icons at the top of the corona themed page it links this way: http://parentdomain/subfolder/http://www.facebook.com/pages/MyFacebookPage
i need the bold part to not be prefixed to the target URL.
An issue that i think is related to this is that bringing up the site, and clicking on Login doesn’t activate the URL, i have to right click Login and choose “open in new tab/window” to bring up the admin login page.
I realize this is primarily a site admin wordpress setup issue, perhaps it solely is that type of issue. This hasn’t been a deal breaker for me until coming across those social media icons and finding that they weren’t linking as expected.
thanks in advance for any advisement.

You can go to Appearance > Editor and open Header.php file and find
href='".$facebook."'>".__('Join our Facebook Group', 'avia_framework')."";
and change .$facebook. to your facebook page manually. You can do the same for other social networks you are using

ha, didnt warn me how “touchy” the header.php would be! :D had one dot out of place and killed the whole output of the page. :O but i did get it figured out.
Thanks again! one spinoff question: IF/when Corona has an update, that’ll overwrite the header.php right? so i should probably grab a backup now while I’m thinking of it huh?February 28, 2014 at 8:08 am #230477
Yep, you should probably create a changelog of the modifications that you did on the theme. Unfortunately, corona theme is a bit outdated and we won’t be expecting any updates for it. You should probably check Enfold.
