    Hi,

    I’ve searched the forums and can’t find an answer for my issue.

    I want to create links and icons to my social media in the custom text widget sidebar like it is shown in the demo. Right under the “about me” and photo are links and icons for following, twitter, facebook, and contact.

    How do I add these icons and links to my sidebar?

    The blog I need help with is runningandranting.com.

    Hi! We’ve covered how to set those up in the last step on the theme setup directions here:

    Thank you! I was able to figure it out. I did have another question though. Is there any way I can make the subscribe icon a pinterest icon? If not, do you know how to add the direct subscribe link to the subscribe icon? I tried to find it and ended up subscribing to my own blog.

    Also… how do I make the posts on my homepage only show the first bit and then have a link for “continue reading”? It has that on the grid post but not the first two posts.

    There isn’t a Pinterest icon included. You’d have to find one or make one.

    The subscribe icon was for subscribing to the rss feed and not the Subscribe by email feature, sorry.

    For the posts, there is no option to have them all show excerpts only, sorry.

    How would I find one? I saw something in other posts about them being in the theme files but all the links are dead.

    We not have have one specific to this theme because we made it before Pinterest was popular.

    So, you would need to use google to search for a pinterest icon, or get one from the Pinterest site.
