Setting up the Social Plugins
You can configure social plugins for both the main template of your onlilne shop, and the individual product pages. Select which area you want to configure by using the drop down box next to Please select which section of your site you'd like to.
You can then drag the social media plugins you wish to use by dragging them from the Available Social Plugins box, to the Your Social Plugins box below. Once you do this, you will see any configuration options (such as username, size of the icon etc). See the below example of installing the Twitter plugin.
Once you have entered the required configuration options, click on update and you'll be able to see the new buttons on your site.
[remember]The Facebook widget requires that you have claimed a unique URL for your Facebook page, for example, www.facebook.com/ekm as opposed to www.facebook.com/05865423[/remember]
[remember]The buttons may not work correctly when logged into your EKM account, as the site is displayed within an iFrame. When testing the Social Plugins, always do this viewing the site as a customer.[/remember]
