How do I add a widget with my icons?

  • Make sure Lightweight Social Icons is activated.
  • Navigate to «Appearance > Widgets» and look for the «Lightweight Social Icons» widget.
  • Drag the widget into your desired widget area.

Once the widget is added to a widget area, you can expand it and fill in your profiles.

What options does Lightweight Social Icons have?

  • Choose your own order
  • Title (optional): Choose a title for your widget.
  • Icon size: Choose the size of the icon font.
  • Border radius: Choose the border radius of the icon. Border radius refers to the «roundness» of the button.
  • Color de fondo: El color de fondo del botón.
  • Text Color: The icon color.
  • Color de fondo al pasar el cursor: El color del fondo del botón cuando pasa el cursor encima.
  • Color del texto al pasa el cursor: El color del icono cuando pasa el cursor sobre el botón.

How do I add my social profile URLs?

In the select box on the left, choose your desired social media site.

To the right of the select box, enter in the URL of your profile on that specific social media site.

The «Skype» option takes your Skype username.

The «Phone» option takes your phone number.

Can I assign different colors to each icon?

Not at this time (without custom CSS of course). We’re hoping to add this feature soon.

Can I display my icons with a shortcode?

No por defecto, pero puedes usar un plugin como este:

It allows you to add the widget to an arbitrary widget area, and then you can call that widget using a shortcode elsewhere in your website.

I don’t recommend this plugin at all. It signs a useless font which is not displayed in the front end to the users but creates core web vitals issues on the back end. The font name is fontello.woff and it is seen nowhere on the front end. Deleting or adding display swap on the font stylesheet also does not works. Moreover, they are two stylesheets and cannot decide which stylesheet is used. I don’t recommend using this plugin unless it is the last option to use.

Tom never fails to make amazing plugins and this social icons plugin is no different. I just hope that there are plans to add a discord icon in the near future. 5/5 plugin!
