ShareThis Widget

Use the ShareThis Widget content type to include one more links to social media, allowing your site visitors to share the page content in their own networks. The content type includes options for links to Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), LinkedIn, Pinterest, to email systems, or the ShareThis menu, which includes an extensive list of social networks. You can choose which icons and links are included.

Do you have your own ShareThis account?

The default setting for this content type uses the general-purpose SCU ShareThis account, but you're welcome to use your own. To do so, you'd add a new special-purpose section at the top level of your site named 'sharethis-config', and add the ShareThis Configuration content type to that section. In that content type you'll provide the code from ShareThis that specifies your account number, and then any information about content sharing in your site will be reported in ShareThis analytics.

Display options

There are four varieties of ShareThis buttons. You can select which style you prefer for your page when adding the ShareThis Widget content type. Here are examples of the display options:

Buttons with Hit Count - Horizontal

Buttons with Hit Count - Vertical

Large Buttons
