The buttons are not showing on my posts in the loop

You must enable the option "Include buttons in excerpts", but keep in mind some themes use custom excerpts which do not correctly parse the buttons.

How do I use display the buttons somewhere else (outside the loop)

If you want to display the buttons somewhere else on your site you can use the following code where you want the buttons to appear:

    $social_sharing_toolkit = new MR_Social_Sharing_Toolkit();
    echo $social_sharing_toolkit->create_bookmarks();

You can also supply an url and title to use on the buttons:

echo $social_sharing_toolkit->create_bookmarks('{YOUR URL}', '{YOUR TITLE}');

To display the follow buttons somewhere else you can use the following code:

    $social_sharing_toolkit = new MR_Social_Sharing_Toolkit();
    echo $social_sharing_toolkit->create_followers();

The LinkedIn follow link doesn't seem right

Click on Edit link, next to your default Public Profile URL (Under Profile tab) 3. Under "Your Public profile URL" on the right click "Customize your public profile url" 4. Type your desired URL in the popup box and you should be done!
