Can I Add Social Sharing Buttons to My Blog Posts

Website builder Blog has a Social Sharing feature that, once activated, allows your readers to share your blog posts to various social media platforms — making it possible for your website to reach a wider audience.

These Social Sharing buttons can be enabled within your Blog's Post Settings.

Add this feature to your blog posts using the steps below:

  1. Log In to access the Website builder dashboard.
  2. Under My Sites, click the Edit Site option on the website that you wish to manage.
  3. Note: If you want to edit a new site, you have to unpublish the current website and make your new site as your primary website.

    Under My Sites, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon on the top-right corner of the website to unpublish the current site. Click Unpublish Site, and then click Yes, Unpublish to confirm.

    Under My Domains, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon of the website that you want to replace as your primary website, then click Replace Primary. In the pop-up window, select the domain of the new website in the New Primary Domain list, then click Replace Primary. You can also click the Domains tab under My Sites to perform the necessary steps mentioned.

    You can now edit the new site that you wish to manage.

  4. Click Pages from the left-side menu, hover your mouse pointer over Post, and then click the Gear Icon on its right.

    Note: Make sure you have enabled Blog first before proceeding to these steps.

  5. Under Post Settings, switch on the button corresponding to Social Sharing to add social sharing buttons under each of your blog posts.

Settings preview is automatically shown on the site editor while you customise, and sharing buttons are instantly added upon enabling this feature.

You've just successfully added social sharing buttons to your blog posts.
