Adding linkedin 'follow' button up next the social media icons

    Here’s our current site: http://www.bennettig.com/
    Up next to the icons we wanted to add the code that generates a “follow” button for linked in.

    Is this possible? If so how would I go about it?

    Here’s the code:

    <script src="//platform.linkedin.com/in.js" type="text/javascript"> lang: en_US</script>
    <script type="IN/FollowCompany" data-id="79859"></script>

    I realize the forum is shutting down tomorrow so hopefully this gets through before then. If not, we’ll go through theme forest.

    thanks,
    Lewis

    Hi Lewis,

    Unfortunately, there’s no feature in the theme for you to add this code through any kind of user option. So, this will be a customization you’ll need to make from your child theme.

    The simplest way would be probably just to hook to themeblvd_header_addon and it’ll get placed after the current HTML there. Then you’d just use CSS to put it where you want.

    Or if that doesn’t work, you’d need to have your code more precisely in with the social icons markup, you’d need to unhook the default alyeska_header_addon() function from themeblvd_header_addon action and hook your own new function in its place to reconstruct that entire area.

    You can see /includes/theme-functions.php of the theme, and check out what the default alyeska_header_addon() function looks like. You’d basically be recreating that from your own callback function, but with your code added in there exactly where you want.
