How to customise the social sharing link previews and favicons of Adobe Creative Cloud Express pages

Adobe Express lets you build beautiful sites incredibly easily. With Cloakist you can host them at your own domain.

Adobe Express lets you build beautiful sites incredibly easily. But when it comes to sharing those sites online, there are a few major problems:
  • The link previews will show the URL, and always say 'See the story'

  • The page itself will show the Adobe Express favicon in the tab title (that little infinity symbol logo), and the URL in the navigation bar

Unfortunately, there is no easy way around this.

The limitations of Adobe Creative Cloud Express

Although Express is great at making sites fast, the team at Adobe are not focused around the needs of Express users who need to hide the Adobe branding and use their own.
Competing site builders allow you to easily customise the favicon and social sharing link description, but Express doesn't. This may be a smart move from Adobe's point of view – it means that users of your Express site will know about Express, and might try it out themselves.
Without Adobe Express themselves supporting customisation of the favicon and social sharing link description, there is – as far as we're aware – only one way to get around this issue, and that's by using Cloakist.

Cloakist for Creative Cloud Express

The first thing Cloakist can do with your Adobe Express page is put it at your own custom URL.
So instead of having that link, you'll be able to send around a link like this:
This is a Cloakist customer's live site, built with Adobe Express and moved to their own domain.
But Cloakist can also go a step further, and change almost any aspect of this site:
  • Fix the favicon
  • Use custom social sharing link previews
  • Remove any other signs that the site was built with Adobe Express
  • Even add analytics or live chat
In this particular case, the customer didn't request any of those. But if you'd like to try out Cloakist to make an Adobe Express site properly your own, you can get started completely free here.
