Whether you have already started to reopen, plan to soon, or are not planning to reopen for a while, one of the most effective ways to stay connected with your people and keep them informed is through social media.
All of the themes available in our WP-EZ Website Builder have a “Social Widget” in the header which can be used to show social media icons that link to your social media profiles.
Previously, to update these icons and links required updating the HTML code in the Social Widget. For the average person, this was not easy to do.
So, we created a new, super-easy Social Media Links editing tool. Now, all you have to do is go to the WP-EZ Dashboard, click the More menu, and select the Social Media option. Put the URLs of your social profiles into that form, and those are the icons and links that will be displayed at the top of your website. Leave the box next to any social media site blank, and the icon for that network won’t be shown.
For most people who built their website before April 26, after you enter the links to your social media profiles into the Social Media Links editor, you will need to enable those links by entering a “shortcode” into the Social Widget. (We are gradually doing this for all sites, but it’s a manual process and will take months to do this for everyone, so we encourage you to do it yourself.)
You can find instructions, help, and a video tutorial on the Social Media Links help page.
During this time of social distancing, helping and encouraging one another through social media is one way we can love one another and reveal Christ’s love to the world. See 7 Ways Your Church Can Minister Through Social Media During COVID-19 for ideas.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. -John 13:35
