Social Media Icons Widget

Plugin/Widget for Social Media Icons

How do I use the widget?

In the Widgets admin page, drag the "Social Media Icons" to the sidebar. Expand the settings and choose a theme (Default is initially selected). Drag / Drop the icons for your desired order. Click each icon to enter the corresponding URL or setting. Check/uncheck the plural form / new window options.  Once you have finished configuring the widget, save the widget settings.

How do I add my own icons to the widget?

Disable the plugin. Using an FTP client, navigate to the "iconset: folder under the wp-content/plugins/smc_widget/images in your wordpress installation.  Create a new folder for your custom iconset, naming it accordingly.  Add your icons (.png format, preferably 32px x 32px size). Reactivate the plugin.  The new iconset will appear in the themes selection in the widget settings.

Can the icon order be changed?

Yes. In the widget settings, drag the icons into the desired order and save. They will appear in that order on your blog.

Does this plugin support localization?

Yes. Version 1.2.1 supports localization with the textdomain 'SMCWidget'. Currently supported languages are Spanish (es_ES), Italian (it_IT), French (fr_FR) and German (de_DE). Support for WPML was also added in version 1.2.1.

Please backup custom icons / folders before updating as they will be overridden!
