    I downloaded the Social Media Widget but those just appear on sidebar. How to add social media icons next to Homepage near top? I am confused.

    Hey Matt,

    It all depends on where you want these to appear on your homepage.
    Essentially you could use the Widgets on Pages plugin to create a new "sidebar" and add you widget to this. You then add the Widgets on Pages shortcode for this new sidebar to your homepage content.

    Ta,
    Todd

    Really appreciate the response Todd. I would like the Facebook and Flickr icons on the bottom of the homepage by the Matt Shiffler Photography 2013 Copyright tagline.

    Ah right... so in the footer.
    Do you want this on every page?

    The main thing is the Home page, but if it's on every page that's great as well.

    OK, so you could do this by modifying your theme's footer.php and adding a Widgets on Pages sidebar by using the template tag (see step (5) on the Installation instructions.
