    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/
    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.


    Hey zoemorn!

    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



    Thanks bud!
    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?



    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 Unfortunately, corona theme is a bit outdated and we won’t be expecting any updates for it.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.



    Ok thanks, I will!
