Reviews

This is the one

This is as simple as it gets. I wanted something that would allow me to choose which social networks to link to and use my own custom icons. This does it perfectly and the interface is very intuitive. I was up and running in less than 5 minutes with the widget perfectly displaying what I wanted on the sidebar.

very useful plugin

thank you for such a good tool.
BTW, could you add import/export settings feature? It’s so boring to recover options manually.

Kick ass plugin

You saved my day. I had a real challenge with trying to find something to display my custom battlefield gaming icons and this plugin worked perfectly.

Great jog and thank you so much for a wonderful plugin that solved my challenge perfectly..

High five..

Easy to use, like the option to add own icons

This is a really simple-to-use plugin. For those who have complained that it does not actually contain any icons, that is both a pro and a con: pro in that you’re not plugging up your files with icons you don’t need (who, really, is linked to 100 sites?); con in that you have to go online and download them yourself. But hardly a stumbling block.

Also, because you must upload the icons to your media library, you can upload logos for sites that are not as popular and whose icons you rarely find in the pre-loaded plugin variety, icons like for Goodreads or Wattpad, which I need. It also means you can get creative and design your own if you’re so inclined.

I’m reserving one star because I would have loved the ability to set different widths for individual icons as not all of mine were square, forcing me to redesign.

Will donate as this plugin works and has not broken anything else.
