I love how simple yet effective this plugin is. I highly recommend it to anyone trying to aggregate links to their social media presences in one place.
In addition to Goodreads, I’d like to see support for About.me and Clippings.me (the latter also known as Cuttings.me, a fairly new portfolio service for writers and videographers).
I sometimes add services such as these manually by uploading icons to the default directories, but then they get wiped out the next time the plugin is updated. I really need to find a better place to put them!
I will look into these Ken. Thanks again for including me in your article. Been crazy busy with my full-time job and have been neglecting the widget a bit, but I hope to be able to contribute more over the next couple months.
Useful plugin. Beautiful icons
Goodreads, About.me, Cuttings,me, and Slashdot are now available in 2.9.8. Thanks!
You can also get rid of iTunes Ping, if you want. 🙂
What’s up with this widget — is it under new management?
Yes, we are new managers of the widget :). You can read more about this at Brian’s blog: http://idontlikethisgame.com/2013/01/15/goodbye-my-friend-you-will-be-missed-an-ode-to-social-media-widget/
Wow! Thanks for that blog post. Brian even cites me as one of the reasons he decided to let go… I hope I did right by him in including SMW in my Computerworld feature.
Thanks for keeping this plugin open source!
I appreciate everything you did for the widget, Ken. You definitely increased interest and brought it to prominence. Unfortunately, one of the side effects were way more requests than I had the capacity to take care of by myself. Most of the 600,000+ d/l plugins out there are run by a team of developers. It was getting way too big and way too popular for me to keep up-to-date by myself, so when Blink Web Effects came to me and agreed to keep the widget F/OSS, I knew this group would be able to keep up the legacy.
Thanks for everything, Ken.
