  1. I have it setup to show some Links from the dropdown “Links” But I can’t remember where I can actually add\edit links to show under this? I tried to use https://wordpress.org/plugins/string-locator/ but it did not find the text in my menus. Thanks!

    • Hi, did you check under Menus in your Admin panel? For example did you check in Appearance -> Menus? Can you also share the URL, so that I can check the links added in your menu.

      Thank you
