Installing Follow Buttons on WordPress

Follow

You will need to access your Shareaholic.com account to create a unique code like this one to insert in your site's template.

1.) Sign-In to your Shareaholic account.

2.) In the Site Tools section, click the Add App Location dropdown.

3.) Select Follow Buttons.

4.) Enter the name of the location where the follow buttons will appear (e.g. Right Sidebar). Optional: Entering a Headline Text will add customized text above the Follow Buttons (e.g. Follow me!).

5.) Customize the position, layout, size, and alignment, of the buttons to best fit your website's theme.

6.) In the Accounts section, enter the username for each service you want as a button. To remove a button, simply remove the username from the field.

7.) Once your customizations are complete, click Save Settings. This will redirect you back to “Your Applications” page. The Follow Button you created will appear under Locations (e.g. Right Sidebar).

8.) On the right, click the </> button to retrieve the code.

 Example:

 

9.) Copy the code [shareaholic app="follow_buttons" id="xxxxxxxx"] without the <?php echo do_shortcode (' in the beginning and the '); ?> at the end so it only displays: [shareaholic app="follow_buttons" id="xxxxxxxx"]

10.) Paste the code into a widget or directly into your site's template.

11.) Save changes.
