Sharing widget

The Sharing Widget makes it easy for your users to copy the link to the page to their clipboard, or share a link on social media.

The sharing widget that we'll be setting up

Copy link button

To make the copy link button work, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Project settings and click on the Custom code tab
  2. Paste the following code into the Footer code field
 var $temp = $("<input>");
 var $url = $(location).attr('href');

 $('.copy-link-button').on('click', function() {

  1. Click into the share widget container and delete the last 2 items as seen here:

  1. Insert 2 HTML Embed elements in their place. The structure should now look like this:
  1. Give each HTML Embed element a class of Inline Item
  1. Insert the following lines of code, one line into each HTML Embed replacing the "REPLACEME" text with the URL to your page.
<a class="social-button facebook" href="" target="_blank"></a>
<a class="social-button twitter" href="" target="_blank"></a>
  1. If you're setting this up on a dynamic CMS collection page, you'll need to build the link so that it matches your URL structure. Highlight the replace me text, click the "+ Add field" button, and select Slug. Then, build out your URL structure in front of the inserted slug, something like this:
  1. Click Save & Close
