Social Media Links – Instagram, Flickr,…

Tobias Hildebrandt

Oct 01, 2017 02:41PM EDT

For photographers most important social media platforms – flickr, instagram and others – can not be added in the administrator section, while for photographers less popular platforms like Twitter and Google+ are available.

I would be fine to tweak the Twitter and Google+ options by adding a Instagram link and changing the displayed logo to an Instagram logo. But even that is not possible due to the built-in url check.

So how can i add an Instagram or a Flickr link to the header section of the used theme (Boulevard2)?

Valuable answers that help me here are highly appreciated.

Hi there Tobias.
At the moment there is only two themes in the store that supports "custom" social networks, they are OxyGen 3 and BackStage (not released yet)

There are today two!
Feature request regarding this issue:

Hopefully these two will count up enough for us to have them shipped by default....

Regards, Bjarne

Hi Tobi,

I have the same issue. The easiest solution is, to edit all header-files. You will need your own social-media icons or you use text.

Are you fit in html and css? So it will be not a problem, its quite easy. But if you need help, let me know

kind regards
