    Hi,

    Unfortunately, it would require quite some time and customization of the theme to achieve this, so I am sorry to tell you that this is not covered by our support. However, if it’s really important for you to get this done, you can always hire a freelancer to do the job for you :)

    Best regards,
    Basilis

    Hi Moses,

    I meant the link to your website, not the FB page.

    Hey Moses,
    Sorry for the late reply, I added this to your functions.php so the FaceBook script will load in your header,
    I got the code from the Like button page on Facebook developers website

    function fb_like() { 
        ?>
    <div id="fb-root"> </div>
    <script async defer crossorigin="anonymous" src="https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v5.0"></script>
    	<?php }
    	
      add_action('wp_head', 'fb_like');

    then I added this code to your footer widget:

    <iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fgeeksmodo.com%2F&width=70&layout=box_count&action=like&size=small&show_faces=true&share=true&height=65&appId" width="70" height="65" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allow="encrypted-media"></iframe>

    and here is a screenshot of it above your twitter as requested:

    Hi,
    The Like button page on Facebook developers website only has a few options, the numbers can be removed and the “share” can also be removed, but since the button is added via an iframe it can not be styled with css. So the standard one has black text next to the button that shows the number of people that liked it, but the black text doesn’t show well on your site, then the next two show the number, and the last option just shows the “Like” so that is the one I choose this time.

    I was able to add “CONNECT WITH US” & “Become a fan on Facebook” but because the twitter and RSS feed is in the same widget that doesn’t allow text I couldn’t add that, but they already say that.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,
    Ok, I made this adjustment, the issue was that the original code was targeted at the home page and didn’t include the archive pages such as “tag” & “category” which is what your menu links point to. So I added this code and cleared your cache plugin.

    #top.archive span.blog-author.minor-meta,#top.archive time.date-container.minor-meta.updated,#top.archive span.comment-container.minor-meta,#top.archive span.text-sep.text-sep-comment {
    	display: none !important;
    }
    #top.archive span.post-meta-infos {
    	    margin-top: -30px;
    }
    #top.single span.blog-author.minor-meta {
    	display: none !important;
    }
    

    This includes a bonus bonus, I noticed that your posts also had the “author” included behind the post title, which was hard to see, but would probably come up with a screen reader :) alternative: 😀

    Hi,
    Ok, I removed the code that hid the author on single pages and added some padding to it so that it would not be hidden behind the title.

    Hi,
    That’s odd, because the author is there under the title and before the categories, I’m sure that you cleared your browser cache, and the only difference is that the parent container that holds the author and categories has some padding to the top of it.
    I carefully reviewed your css and removed the padding and the previous css that made the padding necessary, so now the author should be showing for your screen reader only on the posts, such as the link you sent above.
    Please clear your browser cache and check.

    I tried to investigate this possible issue and found that in Windows at least that the screen reader maybe using it’s own cache:
    In document mode, the user is interacting with a cached copy of the web page, read more here so I’m not sure if this a factor for you here, but please check if you can clear your screen reader cache.

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Hi,
    I assume that you mean the widget in the footer, I added this css:

    #newsbox-12.widget a.news-link span.news-time {
    	display: none !important;
    }

    Please clear your browser cache and check.

    Best regards,
