    Hi,

    I have added the code and .css to display an author box below the content of all posts. Works fine ! I’m using your lightweight social media icons plugin for the company site generic links to social media. Works fine !

    How can I add social media icons that would be author specific to the author box ? Perhaps misusing some of the available profile fields ?

    Thanks,
    Johan

    Hi there,

    few options – easiest of which is to use a plugin for the author box that provides social icons eg.

    https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/simple-author-box/

    Or you could enable HTML in the author description using a plugin like so:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-html-author-bio-by-ahmad-awais/

    Then you could add HTML to the description and include your own icon images and links.

    The more complicated method would be to register your own user meta fields – but that would require custom development
