Share event page or registration form on social media
One of the easiest ways to share your events with your audience is to use the direct social media share icons that you will find in several areas, including the Event Details page in your account and on the public event pages and registration forms.
Share event links on social media
One of the best ways to promote your event and get people to register is to share it around on your social media channels. Just like you would share any other link, you just need the URL link, either to your event page or the event registration form or your entire event portal site, which you would then paste as a post on your social media.
To access these links open your chosen Event Details page within your Corsizio account, and select Sharing / embed codes, which you will find in the menu on the left side under Tools or in the Tools icon bar.
Add your social media link to your event portal site or "Thank You" screen
- Go to Settings > Configurations > Portal Site.
- Scroll down to the Extra Navigation Links section and fill in the desired label, direct link, and target placement.
- Scroll down to Save site setup before leaving this area.
Social media links on event portal site
For use on the top main navigation menu of your portal site and event pages, it is recommended that you keep the labels short, and use 1 to 3 words max. For example, use "Twitter" or "Follow on Twitter". Here is an example of how this would look like:
Social media links on "Thank You" screen
Here is an example of how such links would show on the "Thank You" screen after registration:
Add your social media link to your event page
For a text link
You can simply use the "link" icon from the rich-text Editor toolbar. If you are using the Code view instead, use Markdown formatting or HTML instead. In Markdown, you can place the text your audience will see in square brackets, followed directly, without any spaces, by the URL link to your social media profile in round brackets, as follows:
For an image link
First, you will have to find or host a small image of your desired social media icon on your website or from a public place, and acquire its full URL (web address), as Corsizio does not host any files or images of that sort on its platform. Then, simply use the "image" icon from the rich-text Editor toolbar, highlight the image in the Editor and use the "link" icon from the Editor toolbar to make it a hyperlink. If you are using the Code view instead, copy the following Markdown format and place the image URL in the first set of round brackets, and the URL link to your social media profile in the second set of round brackets:
If you need to re-size the image, you will need to work with some HTML code, instead of the rich-text Editor or Markdown.
Copy the following HTML code snippet and paste it into the Code view of the content box. Then fill it in with your information as follows: replace
link_url with your social media profile URL, and replace
image_url with the image URL for your hosted image, then adjust the size numbers if needed. The size is set to feature a 36-pixel square image, which is common for a social media icon, but you can modify it.
<a href="link_url"> <img src="image_url" width="36" height="36"/> </a>
Here is an example of how this can show on your public event page:
