Having a click-to-tweet box can help you get more tweets as well as traffic, right?
Yes, people want to share more than just the title of an article and the link to it.
Having a powerful quote in your post that makes your readers look good in their community will make them more willing to tweet about your post.
Also, these quotes tend to get more clicks than a headline with a link to your post.
But maybe you are worried that you’ll need a lot of time and some knowledge of codes to be able to implement an attention-grabbing click-to-tweet box that links to your post automatically, right?
In this post, you are going to discover how to do so with ease without touching a line of code. All you need to do is fill the spaces, and you are done. :)
Let’s get into the details. :)
How to Add Click-to-Tweet Boxes in WordPress
Adding a click-to-tweet box will not only make your post look better, but it can also help you get more tweets and traffic to your post.
Here is a simple step-by-step instruction on how to create one on your site without having any coding knowledge.
Step #1: Install & Activate Ultimate Blocks
The first step is to install the Ultimate Blocks plugin on your website.
Ultimate Blocks is a plugin that we created to add more blocks to the Gutenberg editor and help you format your post nicely to make it more enticing to the viewers.
You can learn more about the plugin here.
You can install it like any other plugin.
- Go to WordPress Dashboard > Plugins > Add New.
- Type the name of the plugin “Ultimate Blocks”.
- Install the first result that appears to you. Click on the install button and then click on Activate, and you are done.
You can also download the plugin and then upload the zip file to your WordPress site.
Step #2: Insert ‘Click to Tweet’ Block
Once you’ve installed the plugin & activated it, you can insert the click-to-tweet block in your WordPress editor. Here’s how to do it:
- Search for the Click to Tweet block.
- Add it to your post.
And you are done. Now, you have the click to tweet box added to your post.
Here is a demo of how it would look like.
Step #3: Configure Click to Tweet Block
Of course, you want to style the box to suit your needs without playing with codes. That is why you are here in the first place.
You can easily configure the box as you want in the settings of the block. Here is how it looks in the editor once you place it.
As you can see, there are four settings that you could modify to suit your needs.
- Twitter Username: To add your username so you get mentioned and more people follow your site
- Font Size: To modify the size of your font, to suit your format. Maybe you could make it bigger than your normal font to make it stand out.
- Tweet Color: Don’t want to use the boring blue color? You can choose the color you want.
- Border Color: You can also change the color of the border if you want it to be the same as your tweet color, or you want to use a different color.
You have enough options to customize the box as you want.
And of course, you can change the text inside the box to appear as you want.
