In the past, we showed how an author bio box can be set up in Oxygen by adding custom contact information fields using user_contactmethods filter of WordPress.
This members-only tutorial shows how the same can be done using Meta Box.
Install and activate Meta Box and Meta Box AIO plugins.
Go to Meta Box > Custom Fields and create a new group named say, "User Fields".
Add the desired fields for social media links.
Here is the export file from my test site. Mirror.
Edit your user profile.
Set your display name, fill in biographical info and populate the custom user fields created in the previous step.
Go to Meta Box > Views and create a new View.
Title: Author Social Follow Icons
