Social Networking

The Social Networking tab allows you to add social media links to the Client Area.

The Social Networking tab in General Settings

You can access this tab at Configuration () > System Settings > General Settings.

Social Accounts

We added these settings in WHMCS 8.1.

Enter your account username, ID, URL, or other identifying information in the text boxes for each social media account that you want to use. In the Twenty-One system theme and any custom or third-party themes that integrate with it, icons linking to these accounts will display in the bottom bar of the Client Area.

Currently, supported social media includes BitBucket, Discord, Facebook®, Flickr, GitHub®, Gitter, Instagram, LinkedIn®, Reddit, Skype, Slack®, X™ (formerly Twitter™), Viber, Vimeo, WhatsApp, and YouTube™.

Twitter Integration

In WHMCS 8.1, we replaced this setting with the Social Accounts settings above.

Enter your Twitter username. The two most recent tweets will appear at the bottom of the portal homepage instead of the Latest Announcements section. A Follow us on Twitter button will also appear, linking clients directly to your Twitter page.

  • In addition to this, your latest tweets will also show on your announcements page.
  • To use this option, you cannot set your Twitter account to private.

Announcements Tweet

Check to display a Tweet box that allows clients to share each of your announcements on directly on Twitter. This will also display the number of Twitter shares the announcement has.

Facebook Recommend

Check to display a Recommend and Send button on your announcements to allow your clients to share them to Facebook.

Facebook Comments

Check to allow clients and visitors to comment on your announcements. This will also display an option to share the announcement on Facebook with a comment.
