Now adding social media icons to your sidebar is simple and seamless.
Social Media Icons Widget
Now available in a widget dashboard near you, we present the Social Media Icons Widget! No longer do you have to fiddle around with complicated HTML code to add beautiful social media icons to your blog or website.
With this new widget, you can add icons for the most popular social networks in no time. The icons are linked to your social media profiles, making it easy for your readers to follow your latest status updates.
The Old Way
The New Way
Currently, we support adding social media icons for the most popular social networks, including:
If you want to add an icon for a different service, you can do so with a bit of HTML.
After you save your widget, check out your blog to see how the snazzy new icons look. Then grab yourself a cup of tea, and watch your follower count skyrocket! 🙂
We have a similar plugin for WordPress.org:
This is great but I can’t get the YouTube link to work. You have “channel” as part of the automatic url but my YouTube channel does not have that word as part of the url. My username is UNHCOLA (what I put into your field in WordPress) and the full url is https://www.youtube.com/user/UNHCOLA. No “channel”.
Chris, This is a much-appreciated widget! But, I think there’s a bug you need to fix. The YouTube link is not working correctly. It’s displaying the error message “this channel does not exist” when I click my widget YouTube icon. But, it does exist. So… I’m noticing it is trying to route to “youtube.com/channel/mormonsoprano1” but it SHOULD be routing to “youtube.com/c/mormonsoprano1” (YouTube uses just “c”, not “channel” in its URL).
Let me know if/when this can be fixed. Thanks!
