Affects Core Web Vitals creating Ensure Text Remains Visible During Webfont Load

By Mahesh Panth (advancedblog2017) on December 25, 2022

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.

Fantastic Social Icons Plugin

By scuffed on January 25, 2022

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!

Best Social Icons Plugins but lacks tik tok icon

By Damian Partha (eddiepalomares) on November 8, 2021

This is one of the best social icons plugins out there. But I will cut one star because it lacks the social icon for Tik Tok, one of the fastest-growing social media out there.

Has been great until now

By teropesonen on September 25, 2021

This has been great, but currently does not appear to be compatible with WordPress version 5.8.1

Almost everything you need

By Jan Grube (mcstumpfi) on March 30, 2021

This Plugin helped me for a fast creation of my page. Also it has a lot of icons. For my personal use, there is actually one icon missing. And thats the one for patreon. Is it possible to add this in the next version?

Very good plugin

This plugin does exactly what I want and keeps my page speed score at 100.

Potentially good, but lacking basic functionality

By kaytellehoel ([email protected]) on July 15, 2020

The inability to easily remove the background color and adjust padding around the icons unfortunately ruins an otherwise handy widget.

Please add a Discord icon! Perhaps a custom icon too

By agentrosehq on June 9, 2020

Great lightweight option but lacks all the icons I need - would appreciate a Discord icon myself as well as the ability to upload/create a custom one, should the plugin ever be lacking. Would love to keep using this if these features are added! Right now I'm using the wrong icon so I hope the icon options are added.
