first of all I am a bit of a newbie to WordPress
second – I am trying a 2 column lay out in Enfold theme
the left is right, pulling in blog articles
on the right however the client would like 3 separate boxes, Facebook / Twitter and Instagram – a feed for each
does anyone know I can go about adding this to my homepage please
Many thanks in advance!
The easiest way would probably be to add a new widget area in the Appearance>Widgets section of WordPress using the themes custom widget area functionality. Then add those three items in as widgets to the new widget area and on your 2 column layout add a Sidebar element to the column that should show the feeds and set it to output your custom widget area showing 3 widgets.
hi Devlin – wow thank you for the quick reply! I have created a new Widget Area, I am guessing a new custom area for each feed?
But how do I add Facebook to the new empty widget area?
Please refer to this link on how to add social icons using addThis: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/placing-addthis-social-icons-into-the-header?replies=4#post-134606
Once you’re done, go to Appearance > Widgets then insert a Text widget on the Footer – column widget areas. Copy the social button code on the Text widget.
