    Hi Jamie.

    Just started going the through canvas masterclass I think it’s awesome. Anyway, the question I wanted to ask was, how do I go about inserting social media icons under and article excerpt that I post in a blog. An example of what I mean. http://www.copyblogger.com/blog/.

    thanks

    Hi Dean,

    First up thank you very much for the feedback :)

    I’m not 100% sure this is possible out of the box with Canvas excerpts – the woothemes forums are currently down so it’s not possible to check there at the moment.

    One way to do it is to use a plugin like ‘Share Buttons by Lockerz’. I’ve tested this and it does show on excerpts.

    Hi Jamie.

    thanks for that, does the plugin have any videos to show me how to do it. I know to install plugins but know anything about the plugin itself.

    Hi Dean,

    I don’t think the plugin has any videos but it’s pretty straightforward to get to work. If you get stuck, let me know and i’ll do a video :)

    Hi Jamie,

    thanks for that I will have a look at it, what do you think of share this I know they do a similar thing, I might give that a go as well and see what it looks like.

    Thanks for the reply, I’ve wanted to learn woothemes for a while but as I said before I think the canvas is awesome, I couldn’t believe the things you can do with it.

    So thanks for the instruction great site and videos.

    Hi Jamie

    I have just installed the social media from lockerz. I have a couple of questions.

    1. how is the icons at the bottom of the post and about me, but at the top of contact me page.
    2. how do I get rid of the share/bookmark label and just keep the tweet, google, facebook icons.

    3. how do I get the number likes tweets on there.

    Hi Dean,

    If you go to settings / addtoany you will see all the options that come with the plugin.
