  3. Begin filling in the fields. For the image field, you can use the Upload Image button to select a photo from your Media Library or upload a new one. I would recommend an image around 350px in width; height can be what you want.

  4. Add in the social profile page URL’s for the ones the author has and leave the others empty. For example, your URL would be like: https://twitter.com/yourprofilename
  5. Click “Save & Publish

NOTE – You might notice I have an exclamation mark before the widget title….this is to hide the widget title from the front-end of the site when using the Remove Widget Title plugin. I recommend you try this plugin out if you don’t want a widget title showing but need it for the Admin side.
