The Social Links

The Social Links plugin adds a widget and shortcode to your WordPress website allowing you to display icons linking to your social profiles. The new version includes the following social networks:

  • Google+
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Linkedin
  • YouTube
  • Instagram
  • Pintrest


It’s important to note that we will only support these networks in the free version. We will introduce a premium add-on that will include support for more networks.

We’ve also added support for a shortcode (`[the-social-links]`) for use in WordPress posts and pages and a custom template tag (`<?php the_social_links();?>`) for use in template files.
