Adding social media portlet is simple. Add “Static text portlet” anywhere on your website (we recommend adding it to the site root). Insert title if you want portlet to have a name (1), or leave header field empty (3). Add the following code to the HTML in the TinyMCE:

<ul class="social_icons"> 
<li><a class="facebook" href="#"></a></li>
<li><a class="google" href="#"></a></li>
<li><a class="in" href="#"></a></li>
<li><a class="youtube" href="#"></a></li>
<li><a class="twitter" href="#"></a></li>
<li><a class="rss" href="#"></a></li>

You can add all 6 links (1, 3) or insert less icons if you do not have accounts on all of the proposed social media platforms.
