I’m trying to add a Facebook Follow button to my meta entry next to the comment count. I’d like to display a different follow button for every author (there is two of us) in my blog.
I’m using Genesis framework so I thought there might be an easy way using the [post_author] shortcode to detect who the author is and if so, add the follow iframe code to a place of my choice.
I found the WPBeginner article (http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-add-a-facebook-follow-button-for-authors-in-wordpress/) but I’d rather avoid adding an extra plugin for something that could be done without it.
Have you guys got any suggestions?
