    I would like to change the order in which icons appear. Is it possible to do this without hacking into the plugin code?

    Unfortunately, no... It's not possible, but I'm looking at that option for a future release.

    Thanks for the reply, Brian! It would be a nifty feature, thanks for looking into it.

    there is a manual way - which isn't too hard

    open the social-widget.php file in your plugin folder.

    Go to line 197 - you see something like this:

    now just rearrange by copy and paste the text-sections...

    This is a bad idea. Changing the plugin files will end up causing you way more problems at the end of the day. Any time I update the plugin, you'll have to go go in and make those changes every single time it's updated.

    Hello! Nice plugin!

    Brian, have you been able to add a way to reorder the icons?

    Thank you very much!
