Adding social sharing

Adding social sharing tools to your Pixel Together page can help make it easier for visitors to your site share what they have found with their friends.

There are many free tools to do this and they can easily be embedded into Pixel Together. Here we are going to show you how to do this with Share This (www.sharethis.com).

 

Step 1 - Configure Sharing Tools

Head over to Share This and select to get their tools. To begin you need to select your platform. In the case of Pixel Together you will select 'Website'.

From here you are able to select the type of social sharing buttons you would like and customise which social platforms will be the most popular on your site.

 

 

Step 2 - Copy Embed Code

With your buttons configured you will now need to click the button 'Get Code'.

To get the code you will need to create a free account. Once signed up you will be able to copy the required code.

 

 

Step 3 - Add to Pixel Together

The code comes in two parts. One part gets inserted into the page, the second part needs to be put within the <head> tags of your pages and this can be done in the settings of your website.

Part One - The button code

Copy the first part of the code (nominated by the span tags) and add it into your Pixel Together page. You can this by:

1. Dragging the HTML Box Widget onto the canvas 

2. Double click to edit the content of the widget. Paste in your new code, replacing any default code in the widget.

3. You can move and resize the box to change the position of your social sharing buttons

 

Part Two - The head code

The second part requires you to copy the code available in the second box on Share This (nominated by the script tag) and add it into your Pixel Together website settings. You can do this by:

1) Clicking on your website settings

2) Scroll down to the section named 'Head Tags'

3) Paste the code into the box (you will need to be on a paid plan to have this enabled).

  

That's it. From here you can save & publish and test to ensure your form is working correctly.
