Share Buttons - Customize SMS (Text Message) Template

Follow

With Shareaholic Share Button templates you can customize the pre-filled message when sharing via SMS.

${title}, ${link}, ${short_link}, ${description}, ${notes} and ${source} placeholder variables are available for the SMS template. These will be dynamically substituted with the actual values. All template variables are optional. You can also use ${meta:____} placeholder variables to substitute from your page's meta tags, for example ${meta:og:title}.

There are two ways to set the SMS template:

  1. Codeless method - in the Admin UI, head over to Site Profile -> Settings -> Sharing -> Sharing Settings

  2. Code method - 
       <div class="shareaholic-canvas"
                data-app="share_buttons"
                data-app-id-name="post_below_content"
                data-app-config='{
                "templates":{
                   "sms":{
                     "text":"A little hint that this caught my eye! ${link}",
                     "phone":"+16171231234"
                }}}'>
       </div>
        

If both code and codeless methods are set, code method will take priority.

Tip: If phone is specified, a chat with the person will automatically open. If not specified, a list of contacts that you can send your message to will be shown.
