    One more concern, we’d like to put links to both our Twitter Feed and LinkedIn, into the Footer Widget as well. While simply entering in the Twitter username works fine, LinkedIn does not.

    This is because unlike Twitter, all username links are not on the same path on LinkedIn’s site.

    If you are an individual, the path is: https://www.linkedin.com/in/username

    If, however, you are a company (as we are) your address path is:
    https://www.linkedin.com/company/username

    So when we go to input our username into the Social Widget, unfortunately, you haven’t truncated the path to read just:
    https://www.linkedin.com/

    and then allowed the user to delineate which they are, individual or company. Instead, the path you specify automatically is:
    https://www.linkedin.com/in/

    Which means that no company can use that link to point to their actual profile on LinkedIn, because they erroneously think our username should point to their Individuals folder, instead of their Company folder.

    If this is something which can be changed in CSS, please let us know how to alter that, otherwise, that definitely needs to be fixed at the Theme level for companies wishing to purchase your Theme (which is largely awesome, I might add) for business purposes.

    Cheers!
