Note: If you have a free Webflow plan, ShareThis tools unfortunately will not work on your website since the custom code feature is locked. 

In order for ShareThis tools to work on your Webflow website, follow the steps below to add your unique ShareThis code to the <head> section of your website: 

Adding ShareThis Tools in All Pages

  2. Select the ShareThis tool you would like to use and activate it by clicking the Enable tool button.
  3. Then, customize the buttons by selecting your social channels, size, shape, as well as extras such as the minimum number of shares you wish to have before showing counts.

Adding Inline ShareThis tools

Inline tools require an extra snippet of code to work on your site. If you would like to install our Inline Share Buttons, Follow Buttons, Reaction Buttons, or Social Feed tools on your website, you will need to add placement code wherever you want the tool to appear.

  1. In your ShareThis Platform, select the ShareThis tool you want to use and copy the placement code. Depending on the tool you are installing, the code should look similar to this: <div class="sharethis-inline-share-buttons"></div>
  2. In the design mode of your Webflow website, go to the Page where you want your buttons to appear.
  3. From the left sidebar select Add and search for the Embed option, then drag it to where you want the buttons to appear.
  4. In the new HTML Embed Code Editor window, paste the unique ShareThis code that you copied from Step 1.
  5. Click Save & Close.
  6. Click Publish.

Note: The ShareThis tools may not appear on the backend of your website so you may need to visit your published website in order to view them.
