Now, onto the Social Plugin.

  • The Social Plugin is like a chatroom.
  • Your users can go there to create discussions and comment on existing ones.
  • It’s a great and casual way for your users to interact with each other as well as with you.

Creating a Social Wall Plugin

To add a Social plugin to your app, go to Plugins and Add Plugin. Find the Social Plugin, click add, then name it.

On this page, you can change the plugin icon, title, and whether or not it requires a login. Requiring a login to access the social wall means the user will have to create an account in order to access the Social Wall.

Once your social wall is up and running, you will have access to maintaining any posts inside the app. They should show up here.

Adding the Social Wall Plugin to Your App

Now the plugin has been created and exists, but is not yet accessible to users. You will need to add it to the app on the Home Plugin, in a Folder Plugin, and/or to the Side Menu. To add it to the Home Plugin, go to Home Plugin, scroll down and click “Add Plugin Instance”. Now select the Social Plugin you created. To add it to a Folder Plugin, navigate to the Folder Plugin and click on “Add Plugin Instance”. To add it to the Side Menu, go to Plugins then Side Menu and click on “Add Plugin Instance”.

Your Social Plugin is now accessible within your app. Don’t forget to click Publish to push out your changes. If you haven’t upgraded, please upgrade so that you can publish your changes. Thank you so much for watching. Be sure to check out our other Help Videos and we’ll see you next time!
