    Hello everyone. I'm currently working on a WP site. The theme doesn't have a built in social media feature. I tried plugins and I couldn't get it to work. Can anyone please help me figure out how to add it manually through the code?

    Does your theme support widgets? If so, then install a social media plugin and drag and drop it's widget to the Footer Widget Area in WP Admin. Search for Social Media Widget in Wordpress Plugins Directory.

    Sadly it doesn't I've tried to do that. My only option left is to edit the footer.

    Easiest way for a "nontechie" would be to use something like sharethis_c o m


    Cheers

    You can use this code in footer

    HTML:
    <div id="follow"><a href="#"><img src="images/f.png" /></a><a href="#"><img src="images/bird.png" /></a><a href="#"><img src="images/u.png" /></a></div>
