The top bar is a bar positioned at the upper side of the top menu bar. You can enable or disable it by changing the top bar setting. You can place an email address, a phone number and social links on the top bar.

 

When the top bar is on, the homepage looks like this.

The social links can be shown or hidden from the top bar. If you want to show social media profile links, you need to put them in the Social Media section from the left side.

 

Now we are going to turn off the top bar.
