Social Media Embeds

Adding social media content such as Facebook or Twitter posts is as simple as finding the post link and pasting it into the article body. Instructions for getting the social share URL from the most popular social platforms are listed below.

Important: It is important not to use the embed code that the different social media platforms provide but to use the link pasted directly into the article body. The embed code is typically an iframe, which will not work in the mobile app or in any content sharing you may have.

 

 Platform Steps Screencast
