General Updates

  • Sharing on social media sites is now super easy! Add a floating social media box that scrolls with your content by following the steps below:
    • Log in to your blog’s Dashboard
    • Go to the Settings > Floating Social menu item (on the left)
    • In the top section (Services), select which services you would like to include in the social media box
    • You can also re-order the services by dragging and dropping them
    • You can explore the options
    • Click ‘Save Changes’ at the bottom of the page
    • That’s it!
  • Some people were having issues with updating their user profile pic (avatar). This is now fixed.
    • If you haven’t uploaded a profile pic, you can do so by hovering over the “God bless you, [username]” area of the admin bar (top of the screen when you’re logged in), and clicking “Edit My Profile”. From there, scroll down until you see the “Avatar” section and click the link that says “Change Avatar”.
