I have a Word Press plug in installed that should place logos on my pages and posts. How do I update my pages to show the logo?

Did you activate the plugin after you downloaded it?

1, Check your plugin list and make sure it is activated.

2. Go to its settings from the left menu in wp admin and select the button options you want to show on your site and where you want it to display it: top, bottom, vertical.

You don't say which plugin you used, so it is difficult to be more specific.

Some social media plugins are not compatible with some themes.

I got rid of the plug in I had activated and used Tweet, Like, Google+, and Share. Now there is one strange problem. Facebook doesn't show. What could be wrong?

Yes, that's so, because Facebook no longer supports the Share button and it has to be done with code.

It says so on the Plugin page, with links on what to do instead when you scroll down the page:

Site support just recommended I use another plug in! I guess things change. I asked them for a recommendation and I'm waiting for a response. Thank you so much. I now follow you. I will let you know the outcome.

I don't think they usually like to recommend plugins. As you say, let us know what they say. ~Jude

I installed Ultimate Social Media Plugin recommended by site support. The problem for me was the fact that it's advanced and I didn't know you to place the short codes into the editor. Site support did it for me and now I have all the logos. Thanks Jude.

For future reference, a short code is inside square brackets and you add it to your content in the editor window.

The editor tab must be in Visual Mode (not in Text mode). You then insert (type or copy/paste] the code where you want it to appear on your site.

For example: it would look something like this:

[twitter_counter_retweets]

You cannot see the relavent text or image until you preview or publish the content. ~Jude

The details are overwhelming. How can a person remember this if they don't use it on a regular basis? Thank you Jude.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Once you understand it, you won't forget it.

A shortcode is just a piece of text in brackets that allows you to add objects into WP without writing actual code. ~Jude

Different plugins have their own activation options. If yours is too complicated to use, try the one I use: "Tweet, Like, Google+ And Share", once you activate it, it should start showing social media buttons on all your pages and posts.

Thank you. I watched Kyle's video and followed the directions. I deleted the plug in I had previously tried and put in the Tweet Like. One strange problem. Facebook didn't show up. What could be wrong?

Hi Robert, as I said, the name of the plugin is "Tweet, Like, Google+ and Share".

Site support recommended Ultimate Social Media Plugin. Problematic! It does not show up under settings. It has it's own logo under the settings button. I was asked many questions and I did my best. They were not easy questions for a newbie and I understand why Kyle suggests Tweet, Like. Tweet, Like did not show all of the logos. Thank you. Continue tomorrow.

Site support to the rescue. Ultimate Social Media Plugin is advanced and I did not know how to place the short codes into the WP editor. Support did it for me and now I have all the logos on every page/post. Now I can move on! Thanx Vitaliy.
