How can I add links to social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter?
Posted by on 31 January 2013 01:11 PM

Once you’re logged in into the management screen of your online shop, you can enable the social media icons at 'Settings' > 'Webshop settings', then selecting the 'Scripts & API's' tab. To enable the icons to show on the right hand side of your shop, click the option 'Show Links to Social Networks’ and update your site by clicking the 'Save changes' button at the bottom of the page.

The 'Webshop settings' module is also explained in our online video manual. The video can be watched here: http://www.123webshop.com/en/webshop/manual/settings_webshop_settings/

You can also add a 'Like' button on any one of your pages, to do this go to http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/. All you need to do is enter the URL link to your Facebook page in the 'URL to Like' field. Alternatively you can also customise the appearance of this button by editing the other settings available. To receive the code for the Like button, click 'Get Code'.

On the management screen of your shop you can paste the code from the first field at 'Settings' > 'Webshop settings', 'Scripts & API's' tab in the 'Global scripts:' field. You can update the new settings by clicking the 'Save changes' button on the bottom of this page.

The second code '2.Place the code for your plugin wherever you want the plugin to appear on your page.' should be placed on the content page where you'd like the button to appear. To edit one of your content pages go to 'Manage content' > 'Content' and click on the pencil icon. Then click on the 'Source' button which can be found in the toolbar below the title of your page. You can copy and paste the second code in the source code of the page. You can update the content page by clicking 'Save changes'. The button should now appear in your online shop on the page that you've just edited,  if this is not the case then press the 'F5' button once when you’re on the page to reload it (not from the admin screen).
