[resolved] How to add social media profiles to author widget (4 posts)

    Hi there

    Your Author spolight plug in is great! I was just wondering how you add social media profiles for authors eg. Twitter, Facebook etc. as the standard WP profile does not have fields for this.

    I have looked for other plugins that change fields in the profile but I can't find any that add things like Twitter handles of Facebook usernames. I'm not good at code so a solution that does not involve complicated code would be good!

    Also is it possible to increase the padding and wrap the text around the photo?

    To add social profile fields on the WordPress user profile page, please see instruction #6 on the installation manual for the plugin.

    For styling question please refer to the answer for the question "My Author Profiles don't at all look like the ones you display in the screenshots" on the FAQ page.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for your help I have tried adding the code into my child theme and it has not added any extra fields into the user profile. So I still cannot add social media links to my authors' profiles. Do you have any suggestions for what I might be doing wrong?
    Thank you

    Did you add the required code in the theme functions.php file? I am not conversant with how child themes work in such case. Since this is not related to the plugin itself I suggest you post the question in WordPress troubleshooting forum to get help from other experts.
