Best Practice for Social Media Short Codes

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

I am just wondering if you all have some input on best practices for using the social media short codes (Like button, Pin It, Tweet It, etc). I would like to build this into my post template. I can see that it would be easy to just add a new section below my main content, but that ends up pretty far down the page particularly since tags are built into the content section. 

 

Has anyone found a good way to incorporate all of the sharable icons in a more prominent spot? I already have icons linking to my profiles in my nav bar, this is specifically a question about the share options. 

 

Thanks!

 

Jenna

Hi,

 

If you want to include share icons inside your posts, the simplest way would probably to either use a plugin or a hook and insert them.

      Hi there,  I've been trying to add social media links (facebook, linked in, twitter and Google + to the top menu bar on my site, http://www.stjohnsmith.ca/ but have had no success at all.  I've even tried to add font-awesome icons and it just shows a blank square.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

      Has anyone been able to get the Social Media icons to show up in Impulse or SocialLinks sections?  I read the Reference and gave it a try.
      "Icons
      Enter Icon/url pairs. Format each entry on a new line, in the format:
      facebook http://www.facebook.com/pagelines
      twitter http://www.twitter.com/pagelines
      Icons are displayed to the right of the section."
      I've tried replacing "facebook" with a link to an icon.  I've replaced the pagelines Facebook link with mine.  But neither shows an icon or link.  I've also tried putting them in brackets.  I must have the format wrong.
      Can you help?
      Thanks!

      Hi guys,
      I have been trying unsuccessfully to center my social media bar that I embedded into an "embed" section. Regular text and links are centered based on the alignment setting of the section but I can't get the social icons to center. Any clue what CSS snippets could do the trick?

      I can't find anything in the DMS arsenal for social media 'Like' post, all I can find is only the 'Share' option. Have I missed it, or do I need to look for a third party plugin?
