    Hi!

    I can see that some people like posts of mine from my blog, and they appear as liked on their facebook pages. But a facebook like button is not visible on my wix site!
    When I open it with a mobile phone, I can see a facebook like icon, also a Google + icon, but on my regular PC they aren't visible.

    Why is that and how can I fix it?

    Thanks in advance!

      Hi,

      You also have the Facebook like for blog posts on your desktop site.

      In your editor you have a page that is called "single post". This page shows how each one of your posts will look when you click on the "read more" button. 

       

      When you are inside this page on your editor you can change the social settings that will appear on the live site when entering a post..

       

      And that is how it will look on your desktop live site:

       

      You can find all the information on the Blog feature here.

       

      Please let us know if you need any further help.

      All the best, Nitzan - Wix support

      Thanks, Nitzan, but this doesn't help, because when I click on facebook, for example, it shows a facebook icon, but it's not the like icon. I don't see what you see at all - no Likes, neither the Google + icon. Checking the icons on the Single Post settings doesn't change anything...

      :/

      Hello,

      Please note that on the bottom of the single blog post page there are a Google+ button and a Facebook like button (separated from the blog feature).

      If you don't want them there, you can simply delete them by clicking them >> press 'Delete' in your keyboard.

      If you require further assistance, feel free to contact us again.

      But this is exactly what I've been trying to explain. Those are not visible to me - you see the like and the google +, but I don't see them when I look at my posts. I see only the "share this post:)" and the tracker in the footer, nothing else.

    Still working on my site, almost ready to publish.  I have a couple of social bars on various pages, and I'm using the "silver" Facebook, YouTube, and Soundcloud icons;  I want to add another icon, but I no longer see the "silver" icons as options in the "Add Icon" menu.  What happened?  Did Wix get rid of them, or is the problem on my end?

    Hi, everyone.
    I can't seem to put a social bar under my blog posts. If I set it on all pages, it appears on the same place it's been put for one publication, but it doesn't adjust to the footer of other publications. For example, if one publication is lengthier, the social bar will appear in the middle of it, whereas if it's shorter, it can be seen in the footer. It depends on where I've put it first.
    Now I've removed the social bars whatsoever.
    Can you assist me, please?
    Thank you!

      Hey,

       

      You can add the social bar in the footer and then it will adjust according to the length of the page.

      For more information about organizing your pages, click here or check out our interactive site about header, page and footer (simply click on the image below):

      Hey, thanks for the response.
      I tried, but it doesn't work. The footer adjusts and "runs away" from my attempt to put the social bar in it. I can't seem to make it successfully.
      Can you see it and try to fix it for me? I'd like a facebook share button and that's it. Under every blog post.
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi,

       

      In order to add the social bar or any other component into your footer, you will first need to click on the component > tick the Show on all pages in the small settings window that pops up > now you can drag  the social bar into your footer.

       

      Let us know how it went and if you require further assistance.

    Hi Wix Team, I have a problem with my social bar. I have four icons: FB, Twitter, G+ and Pinterest. Only Pinterest actually shows up on the website (and also in the editor); the rest is blank (i.e. the icons disappear, but the social bar itself still has the appropriate width). What's the problem here?

    I noticed that the icons pop up again if I delete the URL linked to the icon, but that kind of defeats the purpose. Help please!

    When I go to click the social bar onto my page it shows up in the middle of the screen.  I can move it up or down but can't move it sideways.  I want it at the upper right corner.  What do I do?

    Also, what URL am I supposed to use if I want people who see my share to click on it and go directly to the website, not to the facebook page we have?

      Hey

       

      I can see that you have the social bar in the upper right of the site, if you are talking about the outside boarder in the orange/brown color then this will not be seen on devices such as mobiles and tablets.

       

      So if you want to add your own sites the the social icons, just click on them > organize icons, then add the correct link to the relevant icon.

      There is a black social bar in the upper right corner that was provided by wix, I didn't place it there.  It's fine but it's only black and I'd like to have color icons.  When I click on it, I don't get a change style option.  When I add my own, it appears in the center of the page.  I can move it up or down but can't move it sideways.  So here are the questions:

      How do I change the color of the black social bar in the upper right corner?

      How do I drag the icon I generate from the menu left and right.  Currently I can only drag it up and down.

      .  I'd use that one but

      Hi,

       

      We apologize for the inconvenience.

       

      When you click on the social bar, please select "settings", then click the "organize icons" option in the left menu. In the new Window that will open, select the social icon and click "change" this will open the Wix image gallery, in the "free from Wix" tab you'll have a variety of colorful icons:

       

       

      In the settings window you can also change the layout from horizontal to vertical.

    I'm looking for a Goodreads button to add to the social bar. The Wix list of social buttons does not include the Goodreads button or the Goodread Review button. How do I go about adding this?

      Thanks. I'm good on the social bar itself and have the usual Facebook, Twitter icons, etc but I still don't know where to find the Goodreads icon to upload. It's not in the list of pre-selected Wix icons nor do I know where to upload it from. On the goodreads site there is code that can copied and pasted and embedded on the Wix page, but I don't know where to place this code once I am back on the Wix site.

      Thanks. Paul

      Hey Paul, 

       

      You can embed the icon to your site using the HTML App. You can also copy the link to the image from the HTML Code Goodread provided you with, go to the URL in your browser and simply right click and save the image to your computer. After that you will be able to upload it to your Wix site. 

       

      With the HTML App you can test and add your own HTML code to your Wix site.

      For more information check out the tutorial below, or you can click here.
       


      *Take a minute to read through the Known Issues & Limitations of the HTML iFrame/Embed App via the link above before using this.
