How do I edit my product page sharing tools to include Like, Tweet, Pin It, etc.?

Filed in SEO, Social & Promotion

As mentioned in our getting started article, it is important that you review the support article How do I use the Custom Options for my Big Cartel theme? as this will “…allow you to discover all of the additional custom settings for your theme“.

Once you have read and understood the Custom Options article, you will be able to confidently navigate to your Product page and locate the following custom option:

{% assign share_product_tools = 'share tweet' %}
{% assign share_product_style = '0' %}
{% assign share_product_size = 'small' %}
{% assign addthis_publisher_id = '' %}

As mentioned in the Custom Options article, all options are explained further by the custom option notes. This particular option is documented in the notes at Custom Option Notes > Product Sharing Options.

From these notes, you can see that if we wanted our sharing tools to include a Facebook Like button, a Twitter Tweet button and a Pinterest Pin It button, then we would set this custom option as follows:

{% assign share_product_tools = 'like tweet pinit' %}
{% assign share_product_style = '0' %}
{% assign share_product_size = 'small' %}
{% assign addthis_publisher_id = '' %}

Or if we just wanted a single AddThis button to provide multiple sharing options:

{% assign share_product_tools = 'addthis' %}
{% assign share_product_style = '0' %}
{% assign share_product_size = 'small' %}
{% assign addthis_publisher_id = '' %}

Or if we wanted to display icons instead of text, we enter a style option number greater than 0:

{% assign share_product_tools = 'like tweet pinit' %}
{% assign share_product_style = '2' %}
{% assign share_product_size = 'small' %}
{% assign addthis_publisher_id = '' %}

Read the custom option notes for more details on these settings.

Always click the Done button and then the Save link after editing your custom options to apply your changes permanently.
