    Hello ydaria83,

    To add the sociables to your footer open up your style.css file and add this line,

    #sub_footer #social_header { top: 0px !important; right: 0px !important; }

    Next open up /wp-content/themes/awake/footer.php and on line 65 you should see this,

    <div class="clearboth"></div>

    Go ahead and change it like this,

    <div class="clearboth"></div>
    <?php webtreats_social_header(get_template_directory_uri() . '/styles/' . str_replace('.css', '', $color_scheme)); ?>

    Let us know if that works for you ydaria83.

    I want to put the sociables inside the area which I attached above. Also I want to be able to customize them. I followed your directions but they were not visible, I also made sure in the general settings to enable the sociables.

    I am also having a difficulty adding plugins.. I tried 3-4 different plugins but none of them works and gives me an internal error when I activate. Is this because this template doesn't support the plugins??? Because I used 2 others that worked just fine.
    I need a google maps plug in also trying to put the contact 7 plug in.. Please advise.I appreciate your help.

    Hello ydaria83,

    I think that should have worked for you. If possible then send us a link to your page so we can take a closer look.

    If you want them inside a widget then you would need to create a text widget and add links / images like so,

    <a href = ''><img src = '' /></a>
    <a href = ''></img src = '' /></a>

    Hello again!
    I am trying to move the sociables to the footer area or like you suggested to put it in a widget but at the moment how do I not display them at top and then put them in a widget? If you can let me know step by step the procedures so I first remove them from top and place them in a widget I would really appreciate it!

    Thanks.

    First you will need to drag over a text widget to your sidebar or footer and then inside the text widget paste this code,

    <a href = 'http://www.facebook.com'><img src = 'http://www.yoursite.com/facebook.png' /></a>

    And then replace the URL's to reflect your own.

    Hi Elliott,
    I tried your suggestion:
    Hello ydaria83,

    To add the sociables to your footer open up your style.css file and add this line,

    #sub_footer #social_header { top: 0px !important; right: 0px !important; }

    Next open up /wp-content/themes/awake/footer.php and on line 65 you should see this,

    <div class="clearboth"></div>

    Go ahead and change it like this,

    <div class="clearboth"></div>
    <?php webtreats_social_header(get_template_directory_uri() . '/styles/' . str_replace('.css', '', $color_scheme)); ?>

    After doing this it put sociables in the footer area but I still have the top ones as well. Is there a way to disable the ones on the header without effecting the ones at the footer? Please advise.

    Thanks,

    For the top ones try adding this line in the bottom of your style.css file,

    #header #social_header { display: none; }
