Floating Sidebar Buttons Settings

 Selecting which networks to display

You can select which networks to display in the front end by checking the networks available in the select panel. Click the “Apply Selection” button to reflect the changes in the sorting section.

Sorting the networks

After you have selected the networks you can sort them in whichever order you wish them to appear on the front-end side of your website. To sort the items, simply click and hold the sort icon on the left of each item and move the network in the desired position. You can also remove networks by clicking the X icon on the right of each item.

Selecting a button style

For the sidebar buttons you have three styles from which you can choose. One with full background color, one with a border surrounding the icons and one just with the icons. The buttons represented here are just a guideline for the ones displayed on the front-end. The way the buttons are displayed in the front-end is influenced by the Display Settings found below the Button Style section.
