The Vantage Social Media Widget has been replaced by our newer SiteOrigin Social Media Buttons Widget, part of the SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle. If you’d prefer not to use the Widgets Bundle plugin or are already making use of the Vantage Social Media Widget, read on.
The following settings fields are available:
The widget title.
Choose between Large, Medium or Small.
The following networks are available. To display a network, simply enter the URL to your profile page for that network. For example, to have the Twitter icon display, enter your Twitter URL in the field provided.
- Google Plus
The following fields work a little differently:
The Skype field can accept a normal URL like a link to your contact page or a direct Skype call link which is formatted as follows:
Enter a link to your RSS feed.
The email field can accept a normal URL like a link to your contact page or you can insert your email address. If an email address is inserted, the widget will automatically prepend
mailto to the link, ensuring the link opens the users email client.
The phone field can accept a normal URL like a link to your contact page or you can insert a phone number. If a phone number is inserted, the widget will automatically prepend
tel (click to call) to the link, ensuring that users devices dial the phone number automatically when clicking it. For the
tel format to work correctly, numbers should be formatted in international dialing format which consists of the plus sign (+), country code, area code, and number. Google recommends that each section of the number should be separated by a hyphen
- for better reading and automatic detection.
