Social Links Blocks

Use Social Links Blocks to add social icons anywhere you can add blocks to your site. The icons link to the URLs you add in the Social Links panel. It’s common to add this block to a footer.

Tip: To help you get started, your template might include a Social Links Block in its demo content. To customize the block, hover over it and click Edit or the pencil icon.

Before you begin

The Accounts tab of Social Links Blocks reflects the information added to the Social Links panel of your site. When you update the social links in a Social Links Block, they also update in the Social Links panel.

Because of this, all Social Links Blocks show the same social icons. If you add or remove a social link in one Social Links Block, all other Social Links Blocks on your site will reflect the change. It's not possible to have Social Links Blocks display different social icons.
