Adding and Managing Social Networks In Monarch

Before any social sharing buttons will show up, you first have to choose your favorites.

An Overview Of Adding and Managing Networks

networks

Monarch makes it extremely easy to setup, order, and manage social sharing networks and your social network profiles. The dashboard breaks your networks setup into two different locations: Sharing and Following, which are described in detail below.

Social Sharing: Manage Networks

Add Networks

Clicking this button will bring up a modal window of all available social sharing networks. From here you can select networks, deselect networks, and see networks that you may have already had selected. Applying your selections will update your networks list.

Arranging Networks

Arranging your networks into a specific order is as easy as dragging and dropping.

Network Label

By default, Monarch uses the network names as the button labels, but you can type in whatever label you would like. For example, you may want to use labels such as “Tweet This” “Share This” or “Pin This” instead of using network names.

Twitter Handle

If Twitter is added to your list, you can input your Twitter handle so that when people tweet a page, your Handle is automatically inserted to their tweet text.

Profile URL

This link allows Monarch to link out to your social profiles when a visitor clicks on a social follow button.

Follow Count

In theses fields you can input your follow counts. Most networks require that you manually input and update these numbers, but in the display setting below, you can enable API counts for select networks.

Get Counts Via API

Checking this will enable all networks that have a follow count API to dynamically display your follow counts. To learn how to set these up, see the Network API Documentation.
