Hello,
The social media links icons have disappeared from the navigation bar of our site.
This happened once before, about a month ago, and they reappeared, spontaneously as far as I know. I have tried removing items from the Menu in case it was a space issue, but it appears not to be.
I have searched around several times, and am surprised that no one else is having this problem, since I can’t see how it’s tied to our actions.
We are about to launch the site publicly, and would very much like these icons and links to be displaying properly.
Thank you.

If you want to hide social link on the navigation, you can open the functions.php file in the folder path “wp-content\themes\dw-focus”. Find the line 423 to line 430, you can comment the social link which you want to hide.
E.g:

<!--<li class="linkedin"><i class="icon-linkedin-sign"></i><a href="http://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&amp;url=<?php echo $url ?>&amp;title=<?php echo $title ?>&amp;summary=<?php echo rawurlencode( get_the_excerpt() ); ?>"><?php _e('Linkedin','dw_focus') ?></a><span class="digit digit-linkedin"><?php echo $linkedin_count ?></span></li>
 -->

If you still face there issue, please send me your site for further checking. Hope this helps !

No, I want the social links to display. I want to prevent them from disappearing. They are still missing. This has happened once before, but they came back. I know it is not the length of menu items, because I tried deleting menu items to see if the social links would reappear.

You made some customization in the header.php file, didn’t you? I adjusted some code in the header.php file of your theme. Please check!

Yes, I only manually customized the header to make the logos display larger in the header and footer, and it was working fine (off and on) after I did that.

However, I know some of the plugins I installed affected the header, because I looked at it earlier today and it was a big mess. Thanks for cleaning it up, I am making a backup now. Resolved with appreciation.
