    Hi
    Don’t know why I cannot see social media buttons (twitter, Facebook, etc) in the Evolve theme Header. I’ve navigated around in circles and cannot find the solution. Any advice would be appreciated. The website is:

    Welcome


    Thanks
    J

    Hi Jeremy,

    Thanks for contacting us.

    You need to enable that option. Just go to Appearance > Theme Options > Social Media Links then Enable Subscribe/Social links in header.

    I hope that helps.

    Oh, I’m sorry, I was confused between
    -Social Media buttons (so someone can see my Twitter page, for example), and
    -Sharing Buttons for other people to post a link to my website on their Twitter page.

    Is there a way to put Sharing buttons within the header?

    Thanks again,
    J

    OK, then the sharing buttons are on the bottom.
    On some pages, when I click on the share button, the twitter icon is visible.
    On other pages, the twitter icon is hidden behind the footer. For example, http://www.lubanlab.org/research/

    Is there a way to fix that so that the icon is in front of the footer?

    Also, the share button is not visible on my home page, even though it was activated.

    Welcome


    Is this not possible?

    Thanks again,
    J

    Hi,

    You can add some margin to the bottom of you share module.
    Please use the following in your Theme Options -> Custom CSS

    Is this not possible?

    Also, the share button is not visible on my home page, even though it was activated.

    Yes, it’s possible, but you have to ask the Jetpack Plugin author why it does not work on homepage.
    That share button is produced by Jetpack’s share module, not a product of our theme.

    Thank you.

    The margin on the bottom worked great! Thanks.

    I guess I don’t understand what is Evolve and what is JetPak.

    As far as the share button, is there no simple way with Evolve to add buttons so that people can share my web page?

    Otherwise, for the Evolve header, is there a way to shrink the blank space between the Page Title and the menu below it, as on this page:

    Welcome


    ????

    Thanks again,

    Hi,

    I guess I don’t understand what is Evolve and what is JetPak.

    This is quite unusual that you don’t know you had installed Jetpack plugin.
    You can visit this website to understand the plugin and it’s features.
    https://jetpack.com/

    Regarding this page.
    http://www.lubanlab.org/

    I don’t see any particular large empty spacing.
    Please provide a screen-shot with annotation to indicate the space that you want to shrink.

    Thank you.

    Thanks so much again.

    I knew that jetpack was installed but I thought that Evolve had it’s own share feature. Is this not the case?

    Otherwise, for the Evolve header, is there a way to shrink the blank space between the Page Title and the menu below it, as on this page:

    Welcome

    Best,

    Hi,

    There is sharing for post.
    http://demo.theme4press.com/evolve/2008/09/05/readability-test/

    Regarding this page.
    http://www.lubanlab.org/

    I don’t see any particular large empty spacing.
    Please provide a screen-shot with annotation to indicate the space that you want to shrink.

    Thank you.

    Sorry to be so ignorant…I’m REALLY new to this.
    I’m still not really sure what the difference is between a “page” and a “post”.
    I have been setting up pages, not posts.
    On the pages it seems though that you have the option for seeing the share buttons.
    So I’m confused.
    I would like to have share buttons like those in the example you sent. Are these only in posts and not pages?

    Hi,

    For post, it’s automatically shown.
    For page, it’s not.

    Please go to Theme Options -> Sharing box shortcode
    Enable all the social media that you need.

    Edit your page and insert Sharing box shortcode.
    Look for the button with number 4 icon, that’s the button for inserting shortcode.

    Thank you.

    You mentioned that you don’t see any particular large empty spacing for http://www.lubanlab.org
    Is it possible to delete the gray horizontal line that is just under the black Menu Bar and above the top of the white page area?
    As requested I made a screenshot but don’t understand how to insert the screenshot in this message. Maybe my text description of the problem is clear enough anyway.

    Thanks again,
    Jeremy

    I tried the recommended custom CSS but it did not change the problem.
    It is strange because all the pages look great (for example, http://www.lubanlab.org/links/ )
    EXCEPT the “home” or welcome page (http://www.lubanlab.org ). Only this page has an extra gray bar under the menu in the header.

    Hi,

    Please copy and paste only the css code.
    Not the whole block including the shortcode for this forum’s content editor.

    Please see what you had pasted.

    Compare with the code you see in my reply.

    Thank you.
