Hello, everyone. This is Kevin with Ballen Brands, and in today’s video I’m going to show you the new social media sharing feature that we’ve added to the BREW WordPress theme. (Learn more about Ballen Real Estate Agent Websites with IDX)
We’ve integrated share buttons for Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest directly into the theme so you no longer have to use a third party plug-in such as Social Media Feather.
Removing this plug-in may help to speed up your website or improve page speed scores. To activate the new share buttons, head over to the WordPress Customizer, which can be accessed through Appearance, Customize.
Navigate to one of your interior pages such as a blog article or showcase. Open the sharing options and choose where you’d like to display the buttons.
They can be placed at the top of the page just below the H1 heading, the bottom of the page just below the main content area, or both places.
If you activate this new feature, be sure to deactivate Social Media Feather or any other social sharing buttons that you may be using on your site.
Here’s a quick tip for websites that are using the Yoast SEO plug-in.
The title, description, and image that appears with your shared pages on social media can be customized using the social tab in the Yoast SEO meta-box.
These settings are located on the edit screen of all your pages, posts, and showcases. If you like this new feature, please give this video a thumbs up.
