Social Feed

This feature requires the Express: Social Feed plugin. If your Brightspot deployment is missing this feature, contact your Brightspot developer.

A social feed pulls postings from social networks into a list. You can also add a promo to this list.

  1. In the content edit page, open or create the item to which you want to add a social feed.

  2. Under Overrides, expand Module Placement. Drop-down lists Above, Aside, and Below appear for the social feed’s position. (For an illustration of these positions, see the diagram Examples of Module Placement.)

  3. From one of the drop-down lists, select Replace. For an explanation of the possible selections for module placement, see Module Placement.

  4. Click add_circle_outline, and select List. A form appears.

  5. In the Title field, enter a title.

  6. In the Description field, enter a description. For an explanation of the buttons on this field’s toolbar, see Rich Text Editor.

  7. From the Items list, select Social Feed. A form appears.

  8. Under Main, do the following:

    1. In the Max Posts field, enter the maximum number of posts to retrieve from the social networks.
    2. Under Feed Providers, do the following:
      1. Click add_circle_outline, and select one of the available social networks. A form appears.
      2. Click Account, and from the content picker select a social networking account.
      3. (Facebook feeds only) In the Page Name field, enter a page name.
      4. Repeat steps i–iii to add feeds from other social networks.
    3. Under Pinned Items, select an item to appear at the beginning of the social feed.
  9. Depending on your current theme, there is an Overrides tab with additional fields you can use to further define the module.

  10. From the Call to Action list, select a call to action.

    Your List form looks similar to the following:
