I found a great plugin today that I wanted to pass along.
It’s called Social Media Widget and it’s a super easy way to add social media icons with their links to your sidebar. All you do to make the icons for the services you want to display is enter the URL for that service. The widget creates the icons for you from one of five included icon packs. You get to choose the icon pack you want to use. And if none of those icon packs make your day, you can even use your own set of icons.
This widget has a bunch of options. It supports over 40 social media sites and yes, that includes Google +1. It also has a section where you can input up to six custom icons. You just type in the URL of the icon image you want to do and the corresponding URL you want it to link to.
Want more? You’ve got it. You also have three icon size options (16px, 32px, and 64px) plus four options for animation of the icons when you roll over them with your cursor.
I haven’t had much time to play with this widget but I can tell you that it made my day. I think you’ll really find it handy.
