Adding Social Media Icons through Text Widget doesn't work (2 posts)

    I have searched for and followed to a T several tutorials for adding social media icon buttons to my WordPress blog.

    I am using the following code (this is just one example, I have repeated for all different sites and image locations).

    <a href="//pinterest.com/freetobeathlete/”"><img src=”http://www.freetobeathlete.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/
    pintererst.png”></a>

    I dragged a text widget to my sidebar, added the code, saved and clicked close. Absolutely nothing changes. If I add a title to the widget, the title displays, but no button or link is displayed. I have resized the icon image to 40 pixels as well, so I don't think the size is the problem.

    My blog is at http://www.freetobeathlete.com.

    Any suggestions?

    I just finished using a text widget to add social media icons to my websitee sidebar.

    Looks to me like you're missing parts of your URL for pinterest and the icon image.

    If you haven't done so already, you will need to upload your pinterest icon to your media files.

    <a href="https://pinterest.com/yourpinterestpage" target="_blank">
    <img src="http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-content/uploads/your-uploaded-pinterest-icon.png"></a>

    I don't know if pinterst URL is https or http.
