Not working on mobile

The icons dosent show up on any mobile device!
Bad programming!

Screwed up

By Valerie6 on July 27, 2023

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.

Styling Feature Not Working

By elijameslennox on December 27, 2019

When installed in the side bar, it didn't pick up the styling set in the plugin settings per sidebar install. So, I got an unordered list with bullet points and massive SVGs. Probably need to rework some items in this one.

No-brainer Solution!

Love this plugin and especially love the updates made in October '18 with being able to style the individual widgets differently now and the transparent background option! Thank you for another winner, StudioPress!!!

Broken Plugin, no updates in 30 days

By douglaslagos on June 19, 2019

Liked this plugin a lot. Now it's worthless, since all icons are just a blue, black or whatever color square you pick.

Broken from most recent update

By tinselpop on May 12, 2019

I have over 1,000 clients use this plugin, the most recent update broke the ability to change the font color for the icon, it will change to whatever the background color is set at. Fix one thing and break another.
