Simple Social Icons


Simple Social Icons is an easy to use, customizable way to display icons that link visitors to your various social profiles. With it, you can easily choose which profiles to link to, customize the color and size of your icons, as well as align them to the left, center, or right, all from the widget form (no settings page necessary!).

*Note: The simple_social_default_glyphs filter has been deprecated from this plugin.


  1. Upload the entire simple-social-icons folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activeer de plugin via het ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. In je Widget menu, sleep simpelweg de widget bestempeld met “Simple Social Icons” in een widget ondersteunend gebied.
  4. Configureer de widget door het een titel, icon grootte en kleur te kiezen en de URL naar jouw verschillende sociale profielen in te voeren.


Kan ik de iconen herschikken?

Yes, icons can be reordered with the use of a filter. See:

Can I add an icon?

Yes, icons can be added with the use of a filter. See:

My icon styling changed after updating

If your theme includes custom icon styling, you can try adding this line to your functions.php file:

add_filter( 'simple_social_disable_custom_css', '__return_true' );

This will remove icon styling options in the widget settings, and prevent Simple Social Icons from overriding custom theme styling.

I've been using this plug-in / widget successfully and without issue for YEARS with StudioPress and suddenly THE WIDGET NO LONGER DISPLAYS THE SOCIAL ICONS THE WHOLE WIDGET WAS CONSTRUCTED FOR. Just boxes ON EVERY PAGE OF THE SIDEBAR. I am keeping I am not a programmer - there is NO FIX LISTED. I tried adjusting the colors, etc. This is REALLY UPSETTING as I rely on those links and now the user CANNOT SEE THE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS. They can only click blindly and I see no easy fix. THIS IS SCREWED UP AND BAD PROGRAMMING.
