This is Great for Older Themes That Are Missing a Social Links Menu !
By , for WP 4.1

This year, I started using a "Simple and Elegant" one column, blogging theme from Automattic that I still REALLY like. It was launched on WordPress.com back in May 29, 2014 and later offered here on WordPress.org. The main reason that I like it is that its main column is MUCH WIDER than most of the other themes from Automattic. The Theme Designer had a particular idea in mind, which was "Simplicity and Elegance". To acquire that design and display, the developer had to cut back on "unneeded" options that got in the way of the design goal. This is NOT a slam on the developer (I still like and use the theme). It was a necessary decision to reach the targeted goal.

Sometimes when you chose a theme from Themes Directory, you will think of a way to use it that the original designer never contemplated. That is when Plugins fit in, and this plugin is an example of filling an end user's individual needs. My theme (Kelly) only came with One Primary Nav Menu. It was missing a "Social Links Menu" that other themes from Automattic seem to include: Sorbet , Edin , Intergalactic , Harmonic , and Minnow . SO, if you find a WordPress Theme that you really like; AND it is missing a "Social Links Menu" that other themes may already provide; THIS PLUGIN will add it back in with 4-5 options of Social Icon Libraries included. What more could you ask for?

Social Menu Plugin is Fantastic!

Where have you been all my life?

Very easy to use: create a menu, add your desired link(s), name it and you are all set. It does not get any easier.

Plugin comes particularly handy with clients sites.

Thanks Chip!
