Simple Social Icons
Simple Social Icons is an easy to use, customizable way to display icons that link visitors to your various social profiles. With it, you can easily choose which profiles to link to, customize the color and size of your icons, as well as align them to the left, center, or right, all from the widget form (no settings page necessary!).
*Note: The simple_social_default_glyphs filter has been deprecated from this plugin.
Upload the entire simple-social-icons folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
In your Widgets menu, simply drag the widget labeled “Simple Social Icons” into a widget area.
Configure the widget by choosing a title, icon size and color, and the URLs to your various social profiles.
Can I reorder the icons?
Yes, icons can be reordered with the use of a filter. See: https://github.com/copyblogger/simple-social-icons/wiki/Reorder-icons-in-version-2.0
Can I add an icon?
Yes, icons can be added with the use of a filter. See: https://github.com/copyblogger/simple-social-icons/wiki/Add-an-additional-icon-in-version-2.0
My icon styling changed after updating
If your theme includes custom icon styling, you can try adding this line to your functions.php file:
add_filter( 'simple_social_disable_custom_css', '__return_true' );
This will remove icon styling options in the widget settings, and prevent Simple Social Icons from overriding custom theme styling.
