Hi guys

(1st ) I have a social icon plugin, the "Ultimate Social Media" plugin which is GREAT however as I’m using the DW Timeline theme, and it doesn’t have the traditional "widget" section within the "modify appearance" section of my dashboard, I can’t modify my social icons to sit where I want.
They do float down the right side of the page however I would love to have them inserted at the bottom of every page maybe on the left side so there’s chance of missing it ………

Any suggestions folks…. ?
Maybe a "widget plugin" that I can download into my dashboard so that I can then load the social icons where I like.?

(2) Also I had "set up" a site through a different theme ( I origianlly had my site as using the DW Timeline theme but my host company lost my entire site, [ leaving me very … blue … ] so I’ve rebuilt it however I can’t get my "Site Title" to show my website name any more – only the tagline and the Get Started Button……..I don’t know if it’s a gliche from before using a "temporary theme" or what…..
any suggestions ?

Thanking everyone in advance for their help !!!

You can see it in action on my blog (using DW Timeline theme)

Good luck !

Issue1: At the moment, DW Timiline free does not support Widget position as you want, you can use the DW Timline pro.
In the pro version, you can use widget and custom widget in the left sidebar.
Also, if you want to add the social media at the bottom of every page, you can open the page.php file, then replace with the following code:

<article <?php post_class(); ?>>
  <?php get_template_part('templates/page', 'header'); ?>
  <?php get_template_part('templates/content', 'page'); ?>
  <?php echo do_shortcode( '[DISPLAY_ULTIMATE_SOCIAL_ICONS]' ); ?>
  <?php comments_template('/templates/comments.php'); ?>

If you want to display the Site Title, you can log in to Dashboard > Customize.
See the screenshot:
If you still face there issue, you can send me username & password of your site for further checking.
Hope this helps !
