How to edit social media icons?
Click on the social media icons to open the settings toolbar.
Select if you want icons to follow your social media or share your website on your visitor’s feed.
- Social media links
For the Follow Action provide your social media links. You can add an alternative text that appears if the icon doesn’t load and is read out loud by screen readers.
For the Share Action provide the label you want to encourage people to share your website with, for example, “share this page with your friends”.
- Add more platforms
Use this button to add more platforms. You can delete any platform with the x on the right next to it.
Select the visual style of the icons. You can choose from icons designed for bright and dark backgrounds, or made using default colors of the platforms.
Choose between horizontal and vertical icon layout.
Align your icons inside the social icon block to left, centre or right.
Select the color of the icons’ filling.
Choose from three predefined sizes or click on the … button to enter your own size manually.
Set up the gaps between the icons with the slider.
The social media block is a framed workspace around your icons with a Social Media label on the left. You can only see the frame after clicking on the object. It won’t be visible on your website.
You can customize its color, padding, border, radius, and shadow.
Enable this option to move icons to any place on your website.
Note: we only recommend using this option if you have some unusual design that can’t be created in any other way. Using objects with absolute positioning can make your page less responsive on mobile devices.
Hide on mobile devices
Enable this option to hide your icons when your page is opened on a mobile device to make it simpler and faster.
