Part 5. How to add social media buttons

Read the following tutorial and learn how you can add social media actions to Domino Plone theme.

Social media icons can be inserted into any place on the page using portlets. Choose Static Text portlet from the “Add portlet..” drop-down menu. Add portlet title, e.g. Find Us On. In the TinyMCE click the HTML (Edit HTML Source) button and add the following code:

<ul class="social-buttons">
<li class="social-button-item">
<a class="btn-facebook btn-social-icon btn" href="#">
<i class="fa-facebook fa"></i></a>
</li>
<li class="social-button-item">
<a class="btn-twitter btn-social-icon btn" href="#">
<i class="fa-twitter fa"></i></a>
</li>
<li class="social-button-item">
<a class="btn-linkedin btn-social-icon btn" href="#">
<i class="fa-linkedin fa"></i></a>
</li>
<li class="social-button-item">
<a class="btn-google-plus btn-social-icon btn" href="#">
<i class="fa-google-plus fa"></i></a>
</li>
<li class="social-button-item">
<a class="btn-pinterest btn-social-icon btn" href="#">
<i class="fa-pinterest fa"></i></a>
</li>
<li class="social-button-item">
<a class="btn-reddit btn-social-icon btn" href="#">
<i class="fa-reddit fa"></i></a>
</li>
<li class="social-button-item">
<a class="btn-dropbox btn-social-icon btn" href="#">
