Important Information:

I've moved my blog from wordpress to Squarespace. I will no longer be maintaining this plugin. Thanks to everyone who gave feedback and I hope you've been happy with the plugin. If you want an alternative, here are a few that look good. 

The Social Links Wordpress plugin is a sidebar widget that displays icon links to your profile pages on other social networking sites. You can see it in action here on the right hand side of my blog.

Installation Instructions:

  1. Download the installation zip file and unzip leaving the directory structure in tact.
  2. Upload the newly unzipped 'social-links' folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` folder folder
  3. Activate the Social Links plugin from the wordpress plugins activation page.
  4. Add the widget to your sidebar from the Widget design page.
  5. Add your social links from the Social Links page under Management.

Update: I'm currently in the process of updating the plugin for Wordpress 2.9. No end date in mind yet, but I've got all the functionality already in place. Just cleaning up the UI a bit and refactoring the code.

Upcoming Features:

  1. Ability to select any icon from an icons folder and enter any title and url to go with it. Manage available networks on your own! . Just upload the icon and its available to select.
  2. Open in new window(already done)

Known Issues:

  1. Long links are truncated.
