Tortuga supports a Social Links Menu displayed in the header. Add a custom link with the URL to your social media profile (e.g. https://twitter.com/your-name) and the corresponding icon will appear.

Widgets

You can add extra content to your site using Widgets. Tortuga supports two widget areas:

  • Sidebar widget area
  • Footer widget area

By default Tortuga displays posts in a three-column grid on the blog and archive pages. Once you add widgets to the sidebar, posts are displayed in a two-column grid, with a third column for widgets.
