Optional: Enable Sidebar and Set Up Widgets

If you'd like to enable the sidebar, follow these instructions. To edit the widths, go to Theme > Customize > Advanced > Widths.

Set Up the "About" Widget in the Sidebar

1. Go to Layout -> open the "Author Profile" widget from the sidebar.
2. Upload an image, but don't click on "Shrink to fit".
3. Change "Author Profile" in the Title field with your own title.
4. Add your text to the Caption field.
5. Add the link to your About page to the Link field.

Set Up the Social Icons - Sidebar

NOTE: If you've already added your links to the social icons in the menu, you can just copy the code and use it for the sidebar, too.

1. Go to Layout > open the HTML/JavaScript widget below the "Author Profile" widget in the sidebar.
2. Replace youremail with your own email and LINK with the links to your social media accounts. <div class='socials'>
<a href='mailto:youremail' target='_blank'><i class='fas fa-envelope'></i></a>
<a href='LINK' target='_blank'><i class='fab fa-twitter'></i></a>
<a href='LINK' target='_blank'><i class='fab fa-pinterest'></i></a>
<a href='LINK' target='_blank'><i class='fab fa-instagram'></i></a>
<a href='LINK' target='_blank'><i class='fab fa-snapchat-ghost'></i></a>
</div>
FontAwesome is used for the icons, so if you need to add more, you can check out the available icons here.

2. Click on "View stats and learn more.".
3. Click on your feed.
4. Go to Publicize (on top) -> Email subscriptions (on the left).
5. If it's not activated, click on "Activate" (or "Save").

Search Box Code

The search box will already be on the blog when you install the template.

Here's the code in case the widget is deleted:

<input class='searchbox' name='q' placeholder='' type='text' value='Looking for something?' vinput='' onblur='if(this.value==&apos;&apos;)this.value=this.defaultValue;' onfocus='if(this.value==this.defaultValue)this.value=&apos;&apos;;'/>
<button class="searchsubmit" type="submit" value="">Search</button>
<div style='clear: both;'></div>
</form>
</div>
