Facebook and Twitter links
Thanks to PlumPapaya's suggestion, we now have Facebook like buttons on every listing / store page (above the store logo.) Also, you can add a link to your Facebook and / or Twitter pages at the bottom of your Store Settings >> Profile Page, which will create links above the store logo image.
Thanks for using indieCart
Nice! I added the links to my FB and Twitter pages. The Facebook link shows me with 0 likes which is not correct. The Twitter link has the right number of followers.
Yes, the Facebook box shows how many people have liked that particular page on indieCart, not how many people are following your Facebook page. I'd prefer the latter, but I didn't see it as an option from Facebooks available button:
Hmm that is odd. The same button on Etsy shows the number of followers. Not sure it looks so good for the shop owner to have it show as 0 when it is not. ;-(
Would this work better ?
I tried it before and have it set up now so you can take a look (in your store). It just doesn't seem to work, for some reason.
that is weird
Yeah - it works if I test it with zuck (Zuckerberg's page) but no one else's that I can tell. It seems like it's reporting something other than page followers? I've tried to contact them, but no reply. I'll try again...
Ok - turns out the Follow button is only for users, not business pages. Facebook doesn't offer this service for business pages yet. Etsy must be doing it via a custom-coded solution. I'll change it back to the way it was tonight.
wow that is really odd. Surely it would be very valuable for business pages LOL! I took away the link for it, in my profile set up page. I have a FB thingy at the bottom so that will do the job for me. thanks!
