In this article you will find the steps to add a Facebook icon that links directly to your store on Facebook. In this example, we'll be adding it to the Footer, but you can always add the code to a different panel in your store.

First, find a picture you want to use for your Facebook icon. You can use the one below, if you like.

1.) Login to your store's control panel.

2.) Click on Website Content and then Image Manager.

12.) I want the Facebook file to be at the very bottom of the page, in this example, so I'll paste the code below the current content.

13.) We need to make this link to your Facebook profile page. First, we'll write the code for placing the image. Replace the IMAGE_URL in the code below with the address you copied from step #7.

<br /><a href="FACEBOOK_URL"><img src="IMAGE_URL" /></a>

14.) Now, go to your Facebook page and copy the URL from the address bar.

15.) Replace the FACEBOOK_URL in the code above with your code from step #14.
