Allow sharing on social media
If you want to provide a sharing option to readers of your publication, make sure the option "Allow Sharing on Social Media" is enabled in the Publication Properties of the plug-in or in the Publication properties of the Publication Composer.
Using the "Sharing" option also requires you use the TOC Viewer with the Title Bar Button. It cannot be used with the legacy thumbnail viewer.
Configure the default sharing message
In the Build Settings of the Twixl Publisher application, under the "Sharing" tab, you can configure the default shared message for the different platforms. You can choose your own message and insert 3 different placeholders:
- Application Name
- Publication Name
- Article Title
- Article URL: this is ideal if you want to link to e.g. a Web Reader version of your content
You can also add an app-wide (short) URL that links to the store.
Configuring the article URL
If you want your sharing message to have a customized URL per article, that can be configured in the Article properties. This may be a good option if you also have a Web Reader version of your content that is publicly accessible.
Artwork to share
You can select to either share the app icon or the issue cover.
