Social Aside


This plugin provides links/icons for your social-media accounts, like twitter, facebook, your blog rss and a link to your email


  • Icons of twitter, facebook, rss and mail with custom css


  1. Upload plugin-name.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress



Why not?

I enabled the plugin, but nothing shows

The plugin generates the code, but it needs you to customize and add you own icon images. This is an example of css with 27x27px icon images: /* * ASIDE-SOCIAL PLUGIN */

.widget_aside_social {     display: block;     width: 188px;     height: 30px;     margin: 20px auto 20px auto; }  .widget_aside_social div:hover {     margin-top: -3px;     margin-bottom: 3px; }  .widget_aside_social div {     float: left;     display: block;     width: 27px;     height: 27px;     background: url(img/top-icons.png);     margin: 0 10px; }  .widget_aside_social div a {     display: block;     width: 27px;     height: 27px; }  .widget_aside_social .twitter {     background-position: -11px -11px !important; } .widget_aside_social .facebook {     background-position: -60px -11px !important; } .widget_aside_social .rss {     background-position: -109px -11px !important; } .widget_aside_social .mail {     background-position: -158px -11px !important; } 

In future versions I will add a default-css code option so you don’t need to touch anything.
