Sharing buttons gadget

Using this gadget, you can add buttons to a page on your Wild Apricot site that allow the visitor to like or share the page with one or more of their social networks.

You could, for example, add sharing buttons to the event details system page so that visitors can let others know about a particular upcoming event.

When visitors click on one of the sharing buttons, they will be prompted to log into the corresponding social network if they are not already logged in.

You can add buttons for the following social networks:

In each case, you can modify the HTML code used to display the button. For example, you could modify the code for the Facebook Like button to change the layout, color scheme, or width.
