Social Wall

Home Documentation App Features Social Wall

The Social Wall feature will allow you to create a place in your app where your users will be able to interact each other. Since this feature is highly customizable, you can use it as a simple wall of news or as an advanced “Facebook-like” feature.

 

GETTING STARTED

If not already added to your app, click the Social Wall icon in the Add Pages section of your App Manager.

 

Before beginning to configure your Social Wall, you must add your Google Maps API Key to your App ManagerClick here for instructions on how to add your Google Maps API Key to your App Manager.  If you previously added the API Key to your App Manager you can disregard this step.

 

SETTINGS

 

In the Settings screen, you can set the purpose of your Social Wall. Do you want a Facebook-like feature with a map, likes, comments, etc. ?

  • Nearby: Sort the list of news/posts by distance. The max distance is set by the “Near me radius” setting, in km.
  • Map: Display a map of all news/posts.
  • Gallery: Display all images posted in a gallery.
  • User likes, posts, comments: Just like any other social media, for example Facebook.

Just below, will allow you to customize the icons in the app. Here are the default icons:

The black one is the selected section, in the screenshot above it’s the Posts section. If it’s not selected, it’s white, like the others. From left to right, there is the “Posts”, “Nearby”, “Maps”, “Gallery” and “Write a post” sections.

Now, let’s say you want a custom icon for the “Posts” section, upload it and click on Save.
