Hi, I really like the user friendliness of the social link sharing feature. It would be really good if there was an option to add a standard url too, so we could use this same system to simply link to our social media pages if desired.

I know we can add icons manually and link to social pages that way, but it would make sense to add this as a option to the social icons feature so we could utilize the benefits in terms of ease of use.

For new businesses, I tend to setup social share buttons initially while the business establishes itself. And once they have built up their social media pages, I like to swap with direct links. If I could simply change a setting to an 'ordinary link' and enter the url destination that would be so much easier than creating a new element and making it look and behave the same. I appreciate that not many customers do this, but I am sure everyone would welcome the ability to have this control added to the social icons section.

I love Themler, keep up the good work.

Many thanks

Arhon

Hello Arhon,
You can add a social icon with a direct URL via Insert -> Icon. Then select social icon for the icon itself and add the link.
