Adding follow social icons at top of blog page

    Hello,

    Can someone help me figure out how to add the social “follow” icons to the top of this theme. I’ve read some of the topics on here mention using “Add This” which I tried, but don’t really know how to use it or where to add the code. Is there a way to do this that doesn’t take a huge amount of coding? I’m not too familiar with the code aspect.

    I have also installed the WP soical icon plugin and don’t know how to incorporate that into my sight either. I also installed the WPsite follow us badges plugin and I don’t like how it looks on my site.

    Any help on how to get these follow buttons added to the top of the page is greatly appreciated.

    1) Go to addthis.com and get your code.

    2) Go to Appearance >> Graphene Options >> General Options >> Social Sharing Buttons. Tick the box marked “Show social sharing button”. More options will appear. Paste your code in the box marked “Your social sharing button code”

    3) Click “Save”

    Later, when you want to try something more challenging, you can use Graphene action hook widget areas to display these. Here’s how:

    Thank you for the tip, but will this get me the follow icons so they can follow me on twitter Facebook etc? I’ve got the sharing ones figured out.

    Also, is the only code I get that in the little box?

    Hello,

    I have attempted the steps given above and the social icons for following still did not shos up. Not sure if anything needs to be added to the script from Add This or what. Does anyone else have any other suggestions on how to get the social media “follow” icons on the top of my theme?

    Thanks
