You can easily set Social Links within the Showit Design App under Site Settings > Social and apply them throughout your design by setting a Click Action with a link type: Click Action > Social Link > (Facebook, Pinterest, etc.)

Linking Social Media Icons

To link your social media icons, first, locate those icons in your site design or add social icons to your design. 

Next, you can open the social media page/profile you'd like to add in another browser tab and copy the full URL of the social page.

Once you have the URL copied, head to your site settings section and choose the social tab.

Here you can universally list any & all of your social profiles. Close out this menu once your social URLs are loaded in.

Next, simply select any text, icon, image, or other elements you wish to link to a social channel and choose the respective channel in the click action menu.


You can create a custom link to Snapchat to help grow your Snapchat following! When the icon is clicked, the Snapchat app will launch on the user's device and they will have the option to add your business. 

First, add the icon to your site and place in the URL click action:

To create the custom URL, copy this URL and replace the ending text with your personal Snapchat username:

Be sure that the icon is only set to show on mobile, as this icon will not function the same on desktop when using that link. Also, uncheck the Open in new Window selection so that the app is launched directly from your site.
