    With social media big these days, i would like to place a picture icon and/or link of my facebook page, instagram, and twitter on my forum. What did you do as a forum owner to expose your Social Media?

    Provide examples too! :D


    Thanks in advance,

    I've been adding them into the new skin I'm working on at the moment for Sizael. Ideally I wanted them to hover at the top over the header area, but it was causing a conflict in the coding so I instead opted to use the advert template for above the sidebar and coded them into that, using the secondaryContent div class to wrap round it. (Can't give a full page view at the moment because the new look is a surprise for the members.)

    Here, take a peek :)

    Finally, someone with an example. Thanks for that. Who else out there got a good example?

    I use the built-in Add This feature, however since the current implementation is virtually impossible to find I made a small change.

    On my site I changed it to a "Share" link/button:

    @DBA Handy! I know it auto does something similar, but you should write a tutorial for how you did it :D
