Thanks. I did read the install instructions for the plugins, but still no luck. It may help to know that I am not the, I guess what you'd call "SuperAdmin." In other words, I'm using this WP site off somebody else's GoDaddy account and have no access to the C-panel.
I went a little plug-in crazy, activating many b/c I couldn't see any change when I did, and get hoping to see something. The contact form and the customer review are the only ones that showed up. (Yoast SEO was already active when I got access to the site.)
The Social Media plug-ins I've tried are:
Floating Social Media Icon
HS Social Media Buttons
Simple Social Buttons (SSB)
Yet Another Social Media Icon Plugin (YASIP)
SSB is part of the theme, but I tried adding Pintrest to it and though it shows that I moved it over, it doesn't show on the page.
I like the way SSB works, but I'd rather turn it off and have the media buttons show up on the black sidebar. For that, I figure I need Floating... but I can't seem to get it to work. I am not planning to post anything to a blog and send to a bunch of site, I only want others to be able to click Like and Share for the various sites.
I hope this all makes sense. I thank for your help- I'm brand new to WP and to website creation, in general.
