        Thank you Phil,
        But my question was about adding those icons on the Nav bar if the template does not have already.

          Oh I see, sorry for the misunderstanding. Which template are you currently using?

          1. Barbara

            No problem, Phil.
            Actually, I do not have any yet, but I am looking for one to buy and one of my fav does not have that feature, so I wanted to know if it was possible to add it.

              Which template is it that you’re interested in? I’ll check if the feature is available 🙂

                I am interest in one of these Viva Viva, Minim and Infinte templates. Thanks for your help!

                  We can add social icons to the navbar in any of those templates. So you’re welcome to choose your favourite 🙂

                    Thanks!!!
                    I was secretly hoping only one of these would be possible so my choice would be a LOT easier. 🙂
                    Who should I contact for the icons to be added, once I buy a template?
                    Thanks for all your help!
