Keen to enjoy the benefits of showing social media icons on your website? Here is how to do it:
- To show Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Pinterest icons on your website, you'll first need to add your social media accounts in your Social Media section in your Dashboard
- If you want to show the social icons in the body part of your website, you can add a social buttons block anywhere on your website.
- Click on the pencil icon when hovering over the social buttons block to choose whether to display social buttons as full buttons or display them as icons.
- If you want it to show them as icons, you can then select whether to left align, centre align, or right-align the icons within a block.
