How the SnapWidget Object displays Social content on your websiteAuthor: Incomedia
Do you regularly update one or more social media profiles? Think about how much content you’ve published: including that content in your web pages could increase your follower count.
You can do just that using SnapWidget, a feature you can easily add with one of WebSite X5's Optional Objects. With the free SnapWidget Optional Object, each time you post photos or videos to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook they will also automatically be displayed on your web pages.
Insert the SnapWidget Optional Object
- If you haven't already, install the SnapWidget Optional Object, then add it to the page where you want to include your Social content.
- Double-click on the Object after adding it to view the settings window and click on the Start now button in the banner to visit the dedicated SnapWidget page.
#tip - Social content widgets are also perfect for your pages’ headers or footers.
