Social Sharing Element

05/05/2021

Have you ever wanted to share a web page, blog post, WooCommerce product, portfolio item or other piece of interesting content with your friends and colleagues? Avada already has an integrated Social Sharing Box (found at Avada > Options > Social Media > Social Sharing), but for even more control, we also have the Social Sharing Element! This Element was updated and renamed in Avada 7.2 from the Sharing Box Element to the Social Sharing Element, and now can be used in even more ways than before.

This handy Element can be placed wherever you want on a page, post, custom post type, or even in a Layout, and allows you to totally customize the look, color, appearance, links, and description of the link, to any piece of your content. Read on to find out more about this practical and versatile Social Element.

How To Use The Social Sharing Element

The Social Sharing Element is a simple way to add a social media sharing box anywhere in your content. You can also use this Element effectively in Avada Layouts.

Step 1. Ensure Avada Builder, or Avada Live is active.

Step 2. Create, or choose the Column you wish to add the Element into. Click on Add New Element.

Step 3. Choose Social Sharing from the Elements List. Before you get started, it’s a good idea to check out the Social Sharing Element Demo page, where you can see examples of how you can style this element.

Step 4. The available options for this Element have been greatly expanded with Avada 7.2. Watch the video for a full rundown of the Element and all the options, or check below for details on all the available options. Basically, you can now configure your Social Sharing Box in the General Tab, and style it in the Design tab. The Extras tab has also been added, which offer Element animation on load.

Element Options

Location: The edit screen within each Element.

You can deploy as many individual Elements in pages and posts as you need, there is no limit. Within each of the Elements, you will see a tab or tabs that house an array of options that make it possible for you to configure each Element independently, and greatly enhance your flexibility and creative options.

Note: The Default setting will use the global settings assigned for this element at Avada > Options > Avada Builder Elements > Social Sharing. Also, please note that the displayed options screens below show ALL the available options for the element.
