Sharing pages via social media

Sticky share buttons

The sticky share buttons allow users to share a page of the data website via social media (Facebook and Twitter) and via email as shown in the official ShareThis documentation.

Configuring sticky share buttons

To set up the sticky share buttons on your country's data website, the following line of code needs to be uncommented in the config.yml file:
#sharethis_property: '5d279253faeee40012f195e1'
e.g. sharethis_property: '5d279253faeee40012f195e1'

You can also add your own property by signing up to ShareThis. Adding your own property means that you will be able to configure the buttons to how you want them e.g. add more buttons for different social media platforms.
