    I can’t add any social links to the icons. Your documentation does not say how to actually add the facebook or twitter profile URL, c=and thats the one thing i cant find in this documentationj.

    Pretty silly to have social icons if ythey dont lead anywhere 😀

    Is there any way to actually make this block work as intended?

      This block is only for social share buttons.

      To add social media icons with profile links, you can use the default ‘Social icons’ block. Read more about it here:
