Managing your Site Message Area (with sample HTML codes!)

To add social media icons to your sidebar's "site message" area, navigate to store admin/site settings/site message. First, test that the placement is where you want it by typing anything into the site message content area and then saving the changes. In a new tab, refresh your website to see where this test text was placed. If you are happy with the placement and would like to add in the social media buttons, you can do so by first erasing the test message and then finding the image icon in the WYSIWYG editor area. The image icon looks like a tiny tree.

WYSIWYG Image Icon

When you click it, a pop up will request that you load your photo. Once that is done, highlight the photo by clicking on it and then find the hotlink icon. The hotlink icon looks like a chain link (you'll also notice beside the chain link we're clicking a broken chain link. This icon will remove a link placed on an image when the image is highlighted and clicked.).


Once you click the hotlink icon, it will ask you to input the address that you want the image linked to. Paste your facebook/pinterest/etc. page URL into the pop up box. Be sure to also choose the image to "Target: Open in New Window _blank" so when clicked, the image will open your facebook page in a new window for your visitors, without navigating them away from the shopping they are doing on your website!
