Using the Built-In Social Media Icons
What We'll Cover
You can include links to your different social media accounts (e.g. Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram) on your storefront. These are typically displayed in your store's footer but the location may vary depending on your theme. By providing links to your social media accounts, you can encourage shoppers to follow you and share your business and products with their own friends and followers. This can increase your reach when marketing new products, announcing sales, or special events.
Adding and Linking a Social Media Icon
1. Go to Storefront Design › Design Options and click on the Carousel and Social Media tab.
2. Scroll down to the Social Media section.
3. To enable an icon, click and drag it from the Available Networks list at the bottom of the page to the Live on your Storefront list above it. Only 6 icons may be enabled at one time.
4. Enter the URL of your social media account in the field labeled Paste link.
Need to change the order? Drag the active icons up or down to reorder them. You can remove icons by clicking the X to the right of the icon.
5. Save your changes.
On legacy Blueprint Themes you can switch between Theme or Standard icons at any time.
Theme icons are designed by the theme's developer match your theme.
Standard icons are the original icons from the social media platforms.
