    Hello. I would like to add a linkedin widget in the footer of my website. The facebook icon appears automatically but I don’t seem to be able to add the linkedin one. Could anyone help me with this?
    Thank you very much.

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hi Cristina – you need to connect Linkedin to your wordpress blog through the Settings > Sharing page in the admin. Once this is done you can select your profile in the Appearance > Customize page (on the Connect tab)

    Thank you for your reply, Binarymoon! I tried this but it doesn’t seem to work. The linkedin, facebook etc buttons appear on each post/page but not on the frontpage. Thank you once again.

    Amazing theme, btw!

    Hi Christina – really pleased to hear you like the theme :)

    I had a look at your site and I don’t see a linkedin share button on any page. Do you mean the ones that appear under the post content (wordpress, twitter, facebook, google)?

    The linkedin link ‘should’ appear in the footer next to the facebook link.

    If there’s a problem with this then I may need to ask the wordpress support team to have a look at your account.

    Thank you for your message Binarymoon! You are right, I confused things – namely the wrodpress, twitter, facebook and google + buttons with the linkedin one). What I would like is exactly what you said – to have the linkedin button next to my facebook one in the footer.

    I would definitely appreciate it if you could ask the wordpress support team to look at my account.

    Thank you once again.

    No problem – I’ve pinged them so they can have a look.

    Hi Cristina, could you please try disconnecting and reconnecting your LinkedIn account from your site? Let me know if that does the trick to display the LinkedIn logo in the footer.

    I also noticed some PHP code in your CSS editor that you can remove, since only CSS code is usable there:

    $args = Array(meta_key => date_of_post, orderby => meta_value, order => ASC);
    $my_posts = get_posts($args)
    foreach($my_posts as $my_post) {
    }
