Some themes come with built-in RSS links (posts and/or comments), either as a text link, an icon, or both, as indicated on the list below.
“Built into the theme”: icons/links can be hidden with the CSS upgrade and a knowledge of the CSS language or, in some cases, by inserting a text widget that goes on top of the icon (for example, by using Position: Absolute).
“Part of default widgets”: theme comes by default with an RSS Links or Meta widget. To remove, refer to No Widgets Paradox.
“Part of default menu”: default header tabs contain by default an RSS Link. To override, create a custom menu (see support doc).
“Part of Theme Options”: go to Appearance > Theme Options to turn on/off the RSS Feed icon.

Part of Theme Options
• Choco: includes both an RSS Posts link on top and RSS Posts/Comments near the footer.
• Fadtastic: RSS links widget with a list of feed readers (including some dead links…) as part of the default widgets only.
• iNove: optional list of feed readers (under Appearance > Theme Options > Feed > Show the feed reader list when mouse over on feed button).
• K2-Lite: RSS Posts link next to the Latest Posts list as part of the default widgets only.
• Motion: includes a default message (“Hey there! Thanks for dropping by…”) containing an RSS Posts link. To remove this message, go to Appearance > Widgets, then drag and drop the widget of your choice (even an empty text widget) into the Header widget area. For more information, refer to the No Widgets Paradox. In addition, the theme contains an RSS Posts link in the default header tabs.
• P2: RSS Posts link in the Recent Tags widget
• Sapphire: RSS Posts/Comments links along with an introductory paragraph and a link to Bloglines, as part of the default widgets only.
• The Morning After: optional RSS Link and optional Subscribe link below the Search box.
If your theme does not appear on this list, you can insert an RSS Links widget (see support doc).
Social Media Icons
Some themes come with built-in icons that visitors can use to follow the blogger. This is not the same as the Sharing icons, which are used instead to share a post or a page (see support doc).
If your theme does not appear on this list, you have the following options:
• Insert a Twitter widget (see support doc) or a Twitter Follow Button (see support doc).
• Insert a Flickr widget (see support doc).
• Insert a Facebook badge (see support doc).
• Insert a text widget containing links to your social networks. The sample code below will turn like the icons above (but you’d better upload the images to your blog via Media > Add New and use the URLs you’ll get).
