Hi Lane,

Thanks for your comment. Glad to help you out. I just had a look at your site and I see what you mean. Nice site by the way.

Make sure that you are aligning the images the same when you upload them. It is not a problem, try again or have a tweak in the html code manually. Or if you want me to then I can have a look at it, email me the code at office@aidangibson.com I am happy to help.

Hi Aidan,
First of all, THANK YOU for the easy to follow video detailing how to add social media links to websites. I truly appreciate it!
One more question though, on my website, the links showed up stacked on top of each other, unlike your site where they are side by side. Do you have any suggestions on how to get them re-formatted?
Thank you again!
Lane

Hi Aidan,
Once again,something I hadn’t heard of: Icon Finder. Very useful thank you. As time goes on, I’m learning a lot but there is a constant stream of ‘I never knew that’. Have to love those lightbulb moments :)

Thanks again.

Regards,

Aidan,

Those connection buttons are nice to have. Thanks for the resources and taking the time to explain the process. Many people will find this helpful. I can now add a few more buttons myself.

Hi Aidan,

Thank you very much for the great tutorial. Very nice to hear a fellow Brit as well!!!

WordPress can be a bit daunting for those who aren’t very technically minded (like me! Give me an engine or a DC system no problem but computers.. arrgghhh!!!)

I couldn’t find a tutorial on this when I did mine and bumbled a bit trying to find out how to do it.

Thanks again.

Kind regards,

Emma :)

Hi Aidan!

Having these buttons is so important! It is great that you are providing this tutorial for the hopelessly tech challenged like me! :)

When I go to a blog and the blog doesn’t have these links, it is very frustrating and it stands in the way of actually following the person on FB or Twitter! I appreciate the time that it takes you to really explain this step by step!

I use to always wonder how all those blogs have their nice looking buttons on them, and now I know. Providing a video like this is a fantastic way to visually show your visitors exactly what to do, to make their blog and sites more valuable.

Cheers,
Mike

Hey Aidan,

As amazingly simple this is I never thought to use wordpress to generate my html code for me, that’s pretty smart. Thanks for the video.

Aidan,

Remembering back to when I first set up my word press blog, it is good to see this video like showing how to add social media buttons.

Thank for taking the time to put this video together.

Thanks for taking the time to put out this really cool video. I’ve never heard of iconfinder.com and will have to bookmark it for future use. With social media exploding (still) this makes it easy to have people connect with you off your blog. Many people do not know how to do this and you’ve just showed them. Well done.
