Each Strikingly site has a social media panel at the site footer.



You can toggle whether or not you see it by going to your site editor and hovering your mouse over the social media panel. It looks like this!

4. Click "Save" when you're done!

In the editor, you can change what link each of the icons go to, and what link they "like" or "tweet" or "+1." By DEFAULT, users will "like"/etc the url of the page, whether its or Change this by clicking "Customize URL"

Don't like the current layout of the social footer icons? Change its layout by clicking the "Layout button"! You can choose between:

Layout A:


And Layout B:


  • If a site visitor is not signed in to a particular service, and the social media page is public, clicking the icon will ask the visitor to sign-in. On sign-up, the text "strikingly" is shown because of the integration. If you do not want this to be the case, you will have to set up your own fb/tw/g solution.
  • If the social media page is private, and the site visitor is not supposed to know what the page is, they will not be able to see the button.
