  • Hi, I am getting a white line underneath my first two (of three) icons. How can i remove this?

  • Is this plug-in down? I have no icons now.

  • I have WordPress 5.3.2 and this plugin does not work. It does not show icons, it shows circles with text inside like “EO41”, “EO40” and so on.

  • So, these only go up and down, no right to left??

  • I think my css is interfering with the logos and adding black > (arrows) before the logos. any suggestions?

  • Any way to add a Yummly Icon?

  • I really like setting up your widget! How can I insert it as a menu in WordPress? (for navigation at the top of the site.

    Thank you!

  • Hi, Is it possible to set “nofollow” function with social icons?

  • any reason why I had this all set up on my website through my widgets, and 2 days later, all of my links are gone and the plugin was removed from my widget area with a pop up asking me to review you? is this going to happen again??

  • Hi there,

    Many thanks,


  • Hi,

    Add please sidefx profile page icon

    On links Like this

    because its a thematic social network where people share their tutorials, streams and more.
    For example another link with this:


  • social-icons-widget-by-wpzoom.3.4.2 works perfect but the update is all jacked up.

  • Is there a problem with Social Icons. I can’t be sure when it started, but all the content for my social icons is gone. Not displaying on my site, and when I go into settings, all the content is gone — icon styles, links, etc. It is also affecting my newsletter where the icons don’t display on that either.


    • John, what’s the address of your website?

      Do you have a caching plugin or one that minifies the CSS & JS files? Try to clear the caches. Usually this helps.

      • site is

        I do have a caching plug it (W3 Total Cache). I have cleared all the caches and reloaded. Still nothing.

        The social icon widget in Appearance has none of the info I had previously entered. Button style. Gone. Links. Gone. I had Instagram, Pinterest, and FB.

        When I click the “Add More” button to re-enter them, nothing happens and I am not able to re-enter the info.

        Since this seems to be an issue just with my site, would you like me to open a support ticket instead of using a discussion thread? Just let me know.

        Thank yo for your help Pavel! — John

      • Pavel,

        Ok — so from my mobile, I can see the Social Links. From a windows laptop, I can see the social links. BUT — on a MacBook Pro, they are NOT visible on my site. The MacBook is my computer and what I use to manage the site. It is new to me and I recently (about 2 weeks ago) transitioned from a Win laptop to the MacBook.

        It is still odd to me that on my WordPress Appearance tab, when I look at the Social Icons widget, there is no content.

        Is this something Mac specific??

  • I love this plus-in. I use it for the social media stuff, but I also use it for icons to me podcast, like Spotify. How can I add other icons? I would like the Apple podcasts logo, the Google podcasts logo, Tune-in logo, Stitcher logo, Blubrry logo, Android logo please. I am happy to upload them myslef, but I can’t figure out how.
    It says: To add an icon with an email address, use the format., but I do not understand how to do this.
    Can you please help me?

    • I have the same question. The email icon settings force ‘https’ as a prefix so can’t input a valid format for mailto.

    • David, can you please make sure that you’re using the latest version of the plugin?
      It already includes icons for podcasts platform you mentioned: Google podcast, Tune-in, Stitcher.

      The only one missing at the moment is Blubrry, but we’ll try to find an icon in the future updates.

  • Please will you add the Mixcloud icons :
    Also a single custom icon would be nice. One that I can specify my own icon and upload it to the list I can select from.

  • The icons do not show on Mobile. They work perfectly on desktop and always have. But recently I noticed that they do not display on the mobile. Blank space is where the icons should show. I have the latest version of WordPress and the latest version of this widget. I am using Neve theme and this has;t changed since I started using this widget (when it did work). Can you advise on how I can fix this issue?
