I am trying to add a button called "social media" to be beside the Storeview switcher. I tried to follow the answer in: Magento 2 - Add a Custom Button to header.phtml

So I created a CMS block on the backend called 'social media' with id 'social_media'.

I also add the following to the: app/design/frontend/Smartwave/porto/Smartwave_Porto/layout/default.xml file:

<referenceBlock name="header.links">
    <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="social.media" before="-">
            <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">social_media</argument>

However, it didn't work.

So my question: what is the right way to add such a button to the header links in magento 2.3.5 ?



<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceContainer name="top.links">
           <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="button.link" before="-">
                <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">social_media</argument>

        <move element="button.link" destination="top.links" before="-" />


screen shot attached.

Hope this will help you. thanks
