      You mean like Social Media? The red bar on the edge of the post should have what you need. If that doesn’t do it, I can put the old ones back

        Yeah i can’t see the buttons or the red bar. It might just be the computer I am using at work. Don’t change it on my account. Is anyone else not seeing them?
