Do you want to have social follow buttons in your author bio box?
When I couldn't figure out how to get the social buttons to display in my school, I decided to add my own.

In this post I'm sharing the code I used, so that you don't have to spend as much time with google as I did.

I added the code to Dashboard > Author




This is what it looks like when you've clicked the <> brackets





This is the actual code I pasted in:

You'll want to replacee the fields where you see my user names, with your own.

You may also want to upload your own social media icons to match your brand. If you do, just replace the urls that say "filepicker" with the url that will point to your own social media icons.
