Social media icons
PhotoDeck websites are linked to social media in different ways:
Links to your own social media networks
You can define links to your own social media networks (like Instagram, Facebook, X (Twitter), LinkedIn, etc…) under My Website / Setup / Social Networks. These links will then be displayed as icons on your website.
In the website design customization, you can change the size and look of the social network icons.
Each theme / design has a designated spot to display these icons, but note that you can also display them as part of the website navigation menu. To do so, add a new link to the menu and select the “Social network icons” option as the destination of the link.
Make sure to link back from your social network pages to your website, as links are important for search engines like Google!
Letting visitors share your website on their social networks
A Share button / icon can be displayed on enlarged images and galleries. It opens a popup that lets visitors select their social network (including Pinterest, Whatsapp…) and share the page in question (its link).
The button is displayed on enlarged images if allowed by the gallery display style in use (under its Enlarged images/videos / Displayed buttons / Share button setting). It is shown on galleries’ thumbnails pages if Thumbnails pages / Share button and Display gallery-wide action buttons are active.
This button is never shown in private galleries.
Note that there is no Instagram share button, because Instagram is not designed to let users share others’ websites or images. But if you use Instagram, do make sure to add a link to your own Instagram page (see above).
Sharing images from your PhotoDeck admin space
You can also share images/videos (links to pages on your website) directly from your admin space. Please refer to the dedicated help section on this topic (see links below).
