    I would like to make it easy for visitors to my blog to be able to follow me on Twitter and like me on Facebook. To that end, near the header I would like to add buttons readers can click to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. Right now, I have a Faceook like option at the bottom of the screen in the footer, and I don’t have any Twitter follow option at all. I have searched the fora, but cannot determine how to do this with Manifest theme. Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is charlottesville29.com.

    For a Twitter option, see these help pages:

    Since the Manifest theme is designed with footer widgets and no sidebar, one way to adjust that would be to move the footer widgets to the right and make them appear as a sidebar. Here is an example of one way you might do it:

    body,
    #site-wrapper {
    	width: 765px;
    	position: relative;
    	margin: 0 auto;
    }
    #core-content {
    	overflow: hidden;
    }
    #footer,
    #supplementary,
    .footer-content {
    	width: 235px;
    }
    #footer {
    	position: absolute;
    	top: 185px;
    	right: 0;
    	border-top: none;
    	margin-top: 0;
    	padding-top: 30px;
    }
    #supplementary.two .widget-area {
    	float: none;
    	margin-right: 0;
    	text-align: left;
    	width: 100%;
    }

    Note that you will probably need to adjust the numbers in this example to fit your blog.
