Social Media Links

Unread postby dreesor » Wed Mar 15, 2017 1:59 pm

Hi Tim

I am using HM 7.1 and am adding an "About" page to a project on which we want to insert several social media icons/links. Twitter, Linkedin etc. I want the link to show just on the one About page, not on the footer etc of all pages. Here is the code that I generated for the twitter link (it's not a feed, just a link to follow the author).

<a href="" class="twitter-follow-button" data-show-count="false">Follow @someone</a><script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

The image is not loading, and the link is not working in the published manual. Can you please advise?

Hi Dreesor,

You probably tried to paste the code into the editor directly. You need to select the HTML Code Object tool in Write > Insert Object and insert your code there. Then it will work.

I am using HM 7.1

That is out of date. The current version is 7.2.0 Build 4035. Please download the latest installer from

Just install on top of your current version to update.This will not change any of your settings etc.
