Adds links to all of your social media and sharing site profiles. Tons of icons come in 3 sizes, 4 icon styles, and 4 animations.
Love the way this looks and the ease of configuration. BUT my sites have been hit with MALWARE. After investigating, we found out this plugin has a history of injecting MALICIOUS CODE on sites and was banned from WP. The author convinced them to put it back after an update that was supposed to remove the bad code. BUT it has not been updated since then (April 2013) and the author has not visited the Forum to answer questions or offer help in over a year. It would appear this plugin still has some backdoor SPAM INJECTION CODE and is dead and should be removed from the repository. Too bad, because it did exactly what I wanted a SM plugin to do!
Inserts Trogan and Crashes Your Website. Do Not DOWNLOAD!
Your programming such a nice and trendy widget and inserting a trojan horse? Are you nuts?
Seems like, you are in a sore need of this crab, is this really neccessary to torpedo this community with that? I don't think so.
Hope you'll find the straight and narrow again...
Malicious code was added when they launched the version 4.0 of the plugin. My hosting company recommends not using this plugin.
Due to the way wordpress works it inherently requires TRUST from the user to the developer. This developer has shown to be untrustworthy due to their injecting spam into blogs. Any plugin and/or addon for wordpress has the capability to be a trojan horse. I for one will NOT be giving this plugin another chance.
Yesterday i was asked to uninstall this plugin. My webhoster says this plugin has trojanscapacity. Also it is said that wordpress doesn't work longer with the developer of Social Media Widget Plugin.
So i did uninstall it.
I did the latest update a week or so ago and it's broken my theme. Nothing UNDER the widget is showing and my wordpress site requires me to log in each time (not defaulting to dashboard).
Trawled through support forums and noted it said to re-update but cannot work out how to do this. Going to find other alternative.
