    How do I put social media share buttons on my blog posts like the ones you have on the side of this page?

    Also, is it possible to add any more plugins to my site? I was looking on the WP site, and to install plugins it says to ‘Extract the zip file and drop the contents into the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation. Then activate the plugin from the plugins page.' However, I don't see any wp-content section, or any place else that mentions plugins on my dashboard. Would this be a question for Themeco rather than WP? (Yes, I foolishly bought a license for the X-Theme once and tried to build a website without having any clue as to what I was doing. I still have no clue, which is why I rely on you guys so much.)

    The social media buttons on MarketMSO are from a plugin that we do not have available right now on MarketMSO community sites. We will bump this up and see if we can install that for you.

    You are not allowed to install any plugins on your own, there are a couple of reasons for that.

    1 – if you install something that does not comply with standards, you could bring down the server (everyone's sites)
    2 – if the plugin has malware, you would be putting all sites in jeopardy.

    If there is a plugin that you are looking for, let us know what that is and we can see if it is something that we would want to offer to everyone and we also look through the code to see if it is compatible with our MarketMSO codebase.

    Theme.co is a great place to find info on Cornerstone and questions on page building / custom CSS. They are not going to be able to troubleshoot anything since you do not have a standalone installation of WordPress.
