Social Share Block

30 Nov 1999

The social share block let's you place social buttons anywhere on a content page, letting you customise copy and imagery for when your page is shared on social networks.

What is a Social Share block

The Social Share block contains multiple buttons for different social networks including Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Linkedin, Email and Link to allow easier access for people to share your site or page.

With the Social Share block, we've added settings to allow you to change copy and imagery unique to each social network.

Updating Social Share Content

You can update the title, descipriton and image for your Social Share within the Visual Builder and Funraisin Dashboard. By default we reccomend updating the overall Social Share content within the Dashboard under Platform Settings, this will be used as a fallback if no Social Share content is detected on the page.

The Social Share content is pulled in from the source location. For example: if you select current page (which is the default source) then it will share the social content from within the page.

Via Visual Builder

To edit Social Share within the VIsual Builder click the Page Settings settings icon on the left hand side of topbar.
  1. Open page settings via topbar (as mentioned above).
  2. Scroll down on the Edit Page Settings Sidebar until you see Social Sharing tab.
  3. Edit Social Share description, then click save.

Via Dashboard:

Within the dashboard under page settings, you will find social sharing options. Within an event page the social share tab sits across the top.

Tip:
To get the best resolution for your social image, we reccomend to upload an image at least 600 x 315 pixels or 1200 x 630 for a even higher resolution.
