I just updated to versions 1.2 (in WP 3.8.1)
After the update, the icons are gone from the website. In the settings I found that you now have to select where you want them to be displayed and the default is disabled. With an update you should have them enabled by default. Anyway, after enabling these options, I get the following error in both WP admin and on the site itself:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /<path>/wp-content/plugins/cute-profiles/settings/settings.php on line 292
So all I could do is revert the update.
So I don't know if I should still trust this plugin and author, also because this is the second time around an update to this plugin breaks your website.
