    I have the Simple Social Icons plugin installed on my site for Facebook, etc. (displays on the sidebar). I would like to set the image icon for external links. But, how do I remove it from appearing on these icons?

  • I’m not the dev, but I solved a similar problem on my own site by excluding social URLs: twitter.com, facebook.com, linkedin.com, etc.

    Also, on the Exceptions tab, you might be able to uncheck “All contents (the whole page)” and use the other option checkboxes that appear. For my case, I was able to just check “Post content” (unchecked Widgets and Comments) because it turned out all my social icons are in widgets.

    I think it would be great if the plugin could recognize and ignore icons, like it can ignore <img> tags.

    Hope it helps!

    The plugin does ignore <img> tags, but not images set with CSS.
    Beside the options Kalico mentioned, it’s also possible to ignore individual links by setting data-wpel-link="ignore", f.e.:
    <a href="#" data-wpel-link="ignore">Some link</a>
