How to add additional social media links

To add social media links beyond the default Facebook and Twitter profiles, navigate in your NationBuilder control panel to your website’s homepage. There, find the page’s settings tab.

Your Livingston website theme includes support for Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and YouTube URLs.

To add your pages, take the following steps:

  • Instagram: To add your Instagram URL, add a tag to your site’s homepage with the following pattern: ts_instagram_url: https://instagram.com/username
  • LinkedIn: To add your LinkedIn URL, add a tag to your site’s homepage with the following pattern: ts_linkedin_url: https://www.linkedin.com/url/path
  • Pinterest: To add your Pinterest URL, add a tag to your site’s homepage with the following pattern: ts_pinterest_url: https://pinterest.com/username
  • YouTube: To add your YouTube URL, add a tag to your site’s homepage with the following pattern: ts_youtube_url: https://youtube.com/username

Your Livingston website theme will recognize these URLs and automatically add social media links as appropriate throughout your entire website.
