    The Twitter follow button page you’re looking at is only meant for sites hosted over at WordPress.com – those shortcodes don’t work on a self-hosted site as far as I know. 🙂

    Where did you add that search box, did you add it to your child theme’s template files? If so, you could add a Twitter button there as well.

    Oh dear, I can’t remember now how I added the search box – it was so long ago. It was probably through the child them with your help, but I can’t recall. Any suggestions about how to add the Twitter button there?

    I’d suggest you look through your child theme and locate the file where you made that change. My guess is that it would be somewhere in header.php.

    You’ll need to hard-code in a Twitter button, though, since as I mentioned the technique you found on the WordPress.com support site won’t work on self-hosted sites – it’s a shortcode for WordPress.com-hosted sites only.

    You’ll need to find a Twitter button graphic you like, upload it to your site, and then manually add a link around it with HTML. As an extremely rough example of the code:

    <a href="https://twitter.com/youraccount"><img src="http://your-image-path/your-image.png /></a>
