If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I have been having some difficulty adding a tumblr link to the sidebar next to the twitter and facebook links. I have tried to follow the instructions in this thread: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/customise-social-stuff, but I continue to receive an error message, and my sidebar disappears when I try to make these changes. Any help would be most appreciated.
I merged Dude’s code into the first answer on this post to make it more clear http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/customise-social-stuff#post-59026
But you can open up the file sidebar.php and find line 79
**You need to update your theme, current version is 1.7 and you have 1.3. Please go to themeforest.com with the account you made the purchase with and download an update. You will need to use FTP to update the theme which will overwrite all the template files, so if you edited any theme filed , please make a backup first. Otherwise the lines wont match up. I made a video explaining the process if you have modifications you want to save https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8hqGBMSfHtKRkJlN0pyNVNDSkk/edit?usp=sharing.
and on line 79 (which is empty), please paste this
echo "<li class='text-sep'>/</li><li class='twitter'><a href='http://YOUR-URL/'>Tumblr</a></li>";
To make sure you in the right place, line 84 looks like
echo " </ul><!-- end social_bookmarks-->";
Just you will need to change the YOUR-URL to whatever the url you want to display for tumblr, I really don’t use them so not too sure. But if you get stuck, please let us know.
