cbnet Social Menu

Description

This Plugin adds a custom Widget that allows you to add a list of social network profile links to any Theme, using a custom navigation menu. Using this
method, you will keep your social profile links portable from Theme to Theme instead of having to re-enter them as Theme options each time you switch Themes.

Copyrights

The concept for this Plugin is taken from example code by Justin Tadlock,
and the code used in the Plugin is derived from similar functionality in my Oenology Theme.
