1.) CLEAR YOUR CACHE
Now that you've installed the Plugin on Wordpress, you'll want to clear your browser's cache to ensure that you're starting from a clean slate. Not sure how? Instructions can be found here, and will take seconds to do.
2.) ADDING FEATURES
To start adding features, go to the App Manager interface. You'll see a section for Related Content and Share Buttons. This is where you'll customize the look and feel of your apps to best fit your website's theme.
App Manager Interface
Each section includes an area: Post, Page, Index, and Category. These areas correspond to a standard template in your Wordpress theme.
- Post relates to the permalink single-post view.
- Page templates is for an individual page (e.g. About Me).
- Index and Category templates display your recent post feeds. Index does not auto-insert Share Buttons on a static homepage.
For each app, there are auto-insertion options of Above Content and/or Below Content. You can enable or disable the app from an area by simply checking or unchecking the box.
To customize app, click the green Customize button. From the panel, configure your apps individually to meet your preferences.
