How to customize widget, want to add Stumbleupon?
I need help in adding Stumbleupon as one of my widget. It is not part of the list provided.
Thanks in Advance,
The blog I need help with is letterstomybeta.wordpress.com.

You can read more about this here:
Normally, if the widget code does not contain these tags, you are able to simply copy the code and paste it into a text widget.
Regardless, you can add Stumbleupon in a Social Icons widget. See here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/social-media-icons-widget/
There is another way to add Stumbleupon to your Sharing buttons, but I’m going to tag this for Staff to see if Stumbleupon is now connecting over HTTPS which I understood to be the reason it was originally removed from WordPressdotcom’s Sharing buttons to begin with (according to this previous forum thread.)
Can you share the link or code you were trying to use in the widget? We might be able to create a link to your Stumbleupon page through a text or image widget.
@lizkarkoski – is adding custom Sharing buttons still supported? That is how I added Pocket to my site before it became official, following the directions that a Staff member (RyanM) gave many moons ago.
More importantly, can WordPressdotcom re-add Stumbleupon to the official Sharing buttons if they now serve over HTTPS? Thanks
Morning folks –
I should have been more clear in my last reply. I think that we can do this through the Social Icons Widget as long as it is served over https as justjennifer has mentioned. I do not have a StumbleUpon account to test that with. You’ll need to add an icon, and then add your account URL to the widget and save the update.
You could also add it as a plain text or image widget. The choice is yours.
The only sharing button options are these: https://cloudup.com/cD8spMmFHbF
We do not support a custom sharing button option. I’m not finding a work around to that now.
Let me know if you need further help with getting that set up.
More importantly, can WordPressdotcom re-add Stumbleupon to the official Sharing buttons if they now serve over HTTPS?
I will pass this request along.
Of course, it’s no trouble at all :)
