The Social Media Icons widget takes a simple, extendable approach to displaying links to your social media profiles in WordPress. The purpose of this plugin was to strip away the complexities I found most other plugins to have and simply display a set of basic social icons in an unordered list. There's no frills and no fanciness, making it easy to style to your website's look.


Default icons are from the Simple Icons set created by Dan Leech.
