Are you just asking about how to make an image be a clickable hyperlink? If not, can you elaborate a bit and perhaps show the current code?

To make an icon, or any image, into a hyperlink you only need to enclose it within an anchor (<a>) element and set the href value of the anchor to the URL you want to link to. For example:

<a href="http://my.website.com/profile.html">
    <img src="images/myIcon.jpg" alt="My Profile">
</a>

I am looking to make social media icon images link to my personal profile pages.
