Brooklyn theme footer social media icons and product page dead space - help!

Hi,

I'm new to Shopify and using the Brooklyn theme.  Despite tinkering with the CSS, I can't figure out how to get the social media icons to show on the footer.

Also, I'd like to eliminate the dead space on product pages so that most, if not all, of my product information shows above the fold (including pictures).  If there's a way to add smaller pictures under the main image for clickability, that'd be cool too.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Christina,

My name is Ardiane, a Guru here at Shopify!

To add the social media icons on the footer of your site as well to link them to your own social media links, all you would need to do is access the storefront editor. To do this:

1. Go to your Shopify admin

2. Go to Online Store on the left-hand sidebar

3. Click on Themes

4. Click on "Customize Theme"

5. Look for "Social Media"

In that Social Media tab, you will be able to add your social media links like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.

Here is the official doc on our Brooklyn theme that may help you out with other questions. :) As for adding smaller minor images under the main image, we can have a look at supporting you with that once you're on a plan because our Theme Support team may be able to help you with certain customisations then.

I hope that clears it up for you!

OK, I'm Old, Grumpy and computer illiterate enough to not be able to work this out despite nearly two full days of Button clicking.

 

Customize your social media settings

  1. Next to Brooklyn, click Customize.

  2. Click Theme settings.

  3. Click Social media.

  4. Optional: Upload a social sharing image:

    1. Click Select image.
    2. Upload an image from your computer or click Free images to use a stock image from Burst.
    3. Select an image.
    4. Click Save.
  5. Optional: Add links to your social media accounts that show in your footer. Enter the links to your accounts in the appropriate fields. Make sure that you use full links, such as https://instagram.com/shopify, or https://twitter.com/shopify. Links to your social media accounts show in the footer of your online store.

  6. Optional: Add social sharing buttons to your products and blog posts. Check any of the following options:

    • Share on Facebook
    • Tweet on Twitter
    • Pin on Pinterest (not available for blog post sharing)
  7. Click Save.

Note-------------------------- It DOES NOT WORK on my Brooklyn  Shopify.

No Icons or links appear at the bottom of my Shopify page. :(     https://www.pastcolours.com.au/

 

I'm using Chrome.

 

Any resolution suggestion would be great.

I am creating my store using the Brooklyn Theme. Unfortunately, I was trying to add the Social Media Icons into the theme by following the suggetion highlighted above. But, still not working. Could someone show us how to configure it step by step? I think there is a problem with the theme, because I have done all the steps write....... Please I need a solution for this (I have wasted a lot of time trying to do it).. I am paying for that.
