Last updated on Mar 22, 2024

The Follow Us widget is commonly used on websites to encourage visitors to follow the website owner or brand on various social media platforms. It typically consists of a series of clickable icons or buttons that link to the respective social media profiles, making it easy for visitors to connect with the social media accounts of the owner or brand.

Adding a Follow Us Widget

To add a Follow Us widget:

  1. Access the Visual Editor from Channels on the Dashboard Left Panel and navigate to the required page.

  2. Go to the Widgets list on the Visual Editor Left Panel.

  3. Type the widget name in the search bar, or expand the Advanced group to access the Follow Us widget.

  4. Drag and drop the widget onto the Layout Canvas.

After adding the Follow Us widget to your website, it automatically appears with a default design and pre-set buttons for various social platforms. You have the flexibility to style and customize the widget by removing or adding specific social media buttons. You can also style the buttons independently according to your preferences.

Configuring the Follow Us Widget

To design the appearance and behavior of the Follow US widget, activate the Property Panel of the widget by clicking it to access the widget Styles and Settings.

  1. Go to the widget Styles to configure its general styling features (see Global Styles) to achieve the desired visual and functional outcomes.

    • Modify the widget-specific Orientation styling option within the General grouping to:

      • arrange the social media buttons either in a horizontal or vertical order;

      • choose the widget display (Label Only, Left Icon, Right Icon, Icon Only);

      • set the gap between the buttons;

      • activate the toggle to have the buttons displayed with your brand colors.

  2. Go to the widget Settings:

    • to add or remove the social platforms to be displayed on your website, for example, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.

    • to set its visibility (see Visibility Settings) on the website based on criteria such as your customers' location, session status, device type, browser, language preference, etc., to tailor it to specific user segments or conditions.

To configure each social media button within the Follow Us widget independently, access the Property Panel of each button comprised of Styles and Content.

  1. Go to the button Styles to configure the general styling features (see Global Styles) to achieve the desired visual and functional outcomes.

    • Customize the button-specific stylistic feature General to set its display (Label Only, Left Icon, Right Icon, and Icon Only).
  2. Go to its Content to:

    • add links to navigate your customers to the required page, for example, external links, or links to Ecommerce products, collections, phone numbers, email addresses, main (e.g. FAQ, Home, About), and system pages, headings, etc., to enable your users to easily find the information they are looking for;

    • select the icon to be displayed on the website per your design;

    • write the label text to be displayed on the website per your design.

Note: You can access the UI elements existing in the Design System from the upper-right corner of the Property Panel and choose one as a base for the Follow Us widget or the buttons within the widget or create a new UI element and style it accordingly.

You can use the Dotted Menu on the Property Panel:

  • to access Reset Styles to discard the changes made to the Follow Us widget or the buttons within the widget and restore their default style.

  • to access Override Styles to apply the changes made to the Follow Us widget or the buttons within the widget (font, size, alignment, etc.) to the base element and the elements derived from it.
