Hi.

I have added 4 social icon links onto my new template, but it appears not to be working properly.
I have setup Facebook, Twitter Google+ and also changed Pintrest to YouTube Icon.

I have the following issues, the pintrest even though I have put the Youtube address in the setup, when you click the link in the front end it goes to Pintrest?

None of the the other links seem to take me to their respective pages, even though I placed in the links from the web browser.

The web address is www.dozydave.co.uk

Thanks Dave

Hola Sales66:

Para los iconos de las redes sociales , hay que poner toda la dirección completa : http://www.facebook.com/yourID y así con los otros enlaces .
Buen día.

Translator:
For Icons of social networking, you have to put all address complete: http://www.facebook.com/yourID and so with the another links.

Good day.

Hi Hella.

They are not working correctly.

I put the following into the Twitter.
https://twitter.com/dozydave1

However when it is clicked it sends you to this link

https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fdozydave1&text=&original_referer=

For Facebook I put in this.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dozy-Dave-Childrens-Entertainer/149457178474663

However when the link is clicked it sends you to this link.

https://www.facebook.com/login.php?skip_api_login=1&api_key=966242223397117&signed_next=1&next=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fv2.3%2Fdialog%2Fshare%3Fredirect_uri%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.facebook.com%252Fdialog%252Freturn%252Fclose%26display%3Dpopup%26href%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.facebook.com%252Fpages%252FDozy-Dave-Childrens-Entertainer%252F149457178474663%26client_id%3D966242223397117%26ret%3Dlogin&cancel_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fdialog%2Freturn%2Fclose%3F%23_%3D_&display=popup&locale=en_GB

Finally for Google+ I put in this link.
https://plus.google.com/+DozyDave
But when the icon on my site is clicked you are sent to this address.

https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin?service=oz&passive=1209600&continue=https://plus.google.com/share?url%3Dhttps://plus.google.com/%252BDozyDave%26gpsrc%3Dgplp0&btmpl=popup#identifier

I have set the Share Type to Static URL, not sure if this is causing the problem?

Regards Dave

Hello Dave,
the Social Icons controls have the built in Sharing feature.
To avoid using it I'd recommend that you use Image control instead of Social Icons. In this case you may assign any source image and specify custom link

Aileen

Hi,

We'll consider your suggestion. Meanwhile you can use the Icon control.
