Social Links

Social LinksThe Social Link widget allows you to put social media icons linking to your accounts on your website.

To create a new Archives widget, navigate here: WordPress sidebar > Widgets > Add New > Social Link (from the dropdown). When creating a new widget, add your internal name for the widget that will appear in the content builder in your pages.

  • To add a Social Link icon, click the Add Social Link button and it will add a blank channel.
  • On the blank channel, choose your icon choice from the dropdown.
  • Paste in the URL of your account. It should be a clean URL without extra URL parameters. Example: https://twitter.com/WakeForest NOT https://twitter.com/search?q=WakeForest&src=typd
  • Click the Add Social Link button for each icon you’d like to add.

Once your Social Link widget editing is complete, you’ll need to click Publish in the right WordPress menu. Your new widget will be available in the widget dropdown in the content builder in your pages. If you are making a change to the content of an existing widget, then click Update in the right WordPress menu and your changes will appear on all pages containing the widget without further steps.
