so am in phase 3 lesson 1, and Kyle has shown us how to add the social plugin for our social network, but i noticed that i already have facebook, twitter and google plus present on my site and am thinking its from the theme i use.

My question now is how to add pinterest and Istagram to this ones already available or do i still need to add the social plugin? Your answers are very much appreciated please.

Use AddToAny it a good social media plugin and makes posting to the sites a snap.

If you can’t reconfigure your theme then you can add a social media plugin to your site to get those platforms.

If your Theme comes with a plugin to add them, then you need to configurate that plugin with your account details so when people click on it they go to your Pinterest or Instagram account.

Then there are also plugins allowing you to embed content from both to your website, here the same you need to configurate them.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Stefan but i still dont know how to go about this. Secondly when i cluck on these plugins already on the site it takes me directly to the website. Say i click on the fb plugin on my site, it takes me directly to my fb account, do i still need to do something on it?

AddToAny opens a window while your still on your site and you can post to FB or whatever right from there (your site).

Well it does what it should, the user clicks on your FB icon and gets to your Facebook account. That is the use of such a button. You might want to add, look if you can configure this, open in a new window, so the customer can still click to your website in a different tab.

Okay thanks again, lemme check it out and see if there is anyway to make it open in a new window but if it doesnt then i might have to install the social plugin.
