How do I edit the social links in my Big Cartel shop?

Filed in SEO, Social & Promotion

The display of your social icons / links is controlled via your Primary Custom Options. Primary Custom Options are located in your Customize design > Advanced (advanced) – Layout page code (refer to How do I use the Custom Options for my Big Cartel theme?).

Social link settings are located in the {{ NETWORK AND SHARING OPTIONS }} option section as follows:

{% assign your_facebook_url = '' %}
{% assign your_twitter_url = '' %}
{% assign your_instagram_url = '' %}
{% assign your_pinterest_url = '' %}
{% assign your_newsletter_url = '' %}
{% assign your_tumblr_url = '' %}
{% assign your_flickr_url = '' %}
{% assign your_youtube_url = '' %}
{% assign your_vimeo_url = '' %}
{% assign your_skype_username = '' %}
{% assign social_icon_size = 'small' %}
{% assign social_icon_style = '1' %}

{% assign alternative_news_feed_url = '' %}

{% assign display_shop_wide_facebook_like = 'no' %}
{% assign shop_facebook_like_links_to_your_facebook_url = 'no' %}

{% assign display_shop_wide_google_plus = 'no' %}

By reading and understanding the support article How do I use the Custom Options for my Big Cartel theme? you will be able to easily locate these primary custom options, refer to the related notes and then successfully enter your preferred settings. For example:

{% assign your_facebook_url = 'http://facebook.com/my-facebook' %}
{% assign your_twitter_url = 'http://twitter.com/my-twitter' %}
{% assign your_instagram_url = '' %}
{% assign your_pinterest_url = '' %}
{% assign your_newsletter_url = '' %}
{% assign your_tumblr_url = '' %}
{% assign your_flickr_url = '' %}
{% assign your_youtube_url = '' %}
{% assign your_vimeo_url = '' %}
{% assign your_skype_username = '' %}
{% assign social_icon_size = 'large' %}
{% assign social_icon_style = '5' %}

{% assign alternative_news_feed_url = '' %}

{% assign display_shop_wide_facebook_like = 'yes' %}
{% assign shop_facebook_like_links_to_your_facebook_url = 'yes' %}

{% assign display_shop_wide_google_plus = 'no' %}

Click the Save link once you have finished editing your options.
