Adding a Twitter Button in BaseKit

As of June 19, 2013, BaseKit is not available on new Shared accounts; however, HostGator Website Builder is offered as a replacement.

You may wish to add a Tweet button to your website so that visitors can tweet about it without having to leave the page. To get started, go to the Twitter Buttons Page and create a button using the following steps:

  1. Log in to Twitter (if prompted).
  2. Select the type of button you would like to display from the list at the top of the page.
  3. Fill in the button options to customize the button for your guests.
  4. Copy the provided embed code from the right side of the page.

Applying a Twitter Button in BaseKit

Now that you have created a button-through Twitter, you will need to complete some additional steps in BaseKit to add the button to your website.

  1. In BaseKit, click on the Widgets panel > Content.
  2. Drag and drop an Embed widget onto your page.
  3. Double-click on the embed widget, or single click and select the gear icon.
  4. Paste the code from Twitter into the source of the embed widget.
  5. Click Save Changes to apply your Tweet button to the website.
