You're welcome, happy to help!
Hi, It has been about a year since we sent our last email blast. At that time, I had uploaded social media icons and added links from the image directly to our pages in the email fine print block. I don't seem to be able to do that any longer. When I select the icon image and click on the link, it now requires me to add text to be used for the link. Am I missing something or has the ability to link to social media directly from an icon been removed. Thanks!
I'm sorry that you're having difficulty adding a Social Media icon to your email. I took a look at your most recent draft and I am seeing that you have the links filled out properly. Did you get this sorted or are you still needing assistance?
I believe the exiting links are working because I duplicated a previous email However, I don't know how to add a new link directly from the icon image. I can't close the link window without adding text. If I add text, it replaces the icon. Please let me know if I am doing something incorrectly.
When you're editing a block within your email, on the left-hand side we have 3 options. You want to choose the Social Option.
Then once you hit the Social Option, you can choose the Social Network that you want to connect to. In this example, I chose Facebook. Just insert your Facebook Page URL and then click Insert. We'll do the rest!
Does this work for customized email? I am using my own HTML/CSS to design my e-blasts. My client would like their subscribers to share the newsletter via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn.
Below is a link that will give you the steps on how to set this up for your client's email. Have a great weekend!
