Making buttons and text appear on blog posts, not 'About' page

  1. I'm struggling to understand the Appearance settings. I've set up my blog to include twitter follow button, FB like and so on - and also to show my cloud tags and tweets. But all of this only shows on the 'About' page, not on my blog posts. How do I change that?

    The blog I need help with is toeattonight.wordpress.com.

  2. On the main page of your blog, these items do not show, but once you click on an individual post, the share buttons and side bar info are all included.
    Here is one page-

    On the main page, Suburbia doesn't display regularly inserted images. They only display when a post is viewed on its own page - not on the front page. Only two posts with featured images in them display there side by side. To have front page image display set a featured image to each post and make each post a sticky post. The size of the featured image does matter. The featured image works best with images at least 350 by 248 (width, height).

    If you don’t see the Featured Image module on your Add New or Edit Post page, please make sure you’ve selected Featured Image in your Screen Options. http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options

  4. @birdingbunch - Thanks for your help! So, how do I move 'Information' 'Shortlink' and 'Navigation' below my twitter/FB stuff? I'd like my own social media stuff to show at the top right of the post, so it's up there with my text and clearly visible from the post.

  5. Hi @timethief - but I don't think you understand what I'm trying to achieve. I'm not trying to include images, or featured images, I just want my twitter, tweets and FB links to be at the top of the post - in the sidebar - and not underneath all the template 'Information' 'Shortlink' etc

  6. This is the widget forum. Do your have CSS editing skills? Have you purchased an annually renewable custom design upgrade?

    The only way to do that requires purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/ and then doing the required CSS editing. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/editing-css/
