Social Links On Your Clover Site

Company News

We know this feature was a bit under the radar, but we're excited to get this new way of connecting your Clover website to your various forms of social media into your hands.

This is a feature we know a lot of you have been wanting for a while now, and have even been using some full pages and even logo space to point people towards your social media presence. But not anymore... Introducing our new "Social Links" feature!

This feature allows you to have a section on your website dedicated to providing links to your various forms of social media. They are located in different places in each of the different site designs... Below is an example of social links on the "Neue" site design.

To add this feature to your Clover site, go to your Greenhouse Dashboard and go to the "Site Settings" tab and you'll see a button titled "Social Links". You can add this new feature to your site here.

I created a quick walkthrough video highlighting this new feature. Check it out if you'd like:

We give you the ability in your Greenhouse Dashboard to not only customize the location these links point to, but even choose from a wide variety of icons and customize the directions you give your visitor when they rollover your icon.

The most common uses are pointing your visitors to your Facebook page, Twitter account, or other social media profiles. The feature will work great for that, but it can also be used for a ton of other things too... Here are some other (more creative) ways of using this new feature:

Link to any type of page on any social network. For example, you can link to your Facebook photos instead of your Facebook wall.  You basically have the ability to link to any public URL you can find... So get creative!

Link to an email address by simply entering it in the URL field. Here's how: Choose "Other" as the service, enter the email address in the url field, and then make the title something like "Contact Us".  You can use any icon you'd like, although the mail envelope might be the most appropriate...

Consider linking to the html/mobile version of your site and using the "accessibility" icon (the man in the circle). The url is just your website address with "?view=mobile" tacked onto the end.

Just some extra ideas with this new feature. Be sure to let us know if you have any questions. Enjoy!
