  1. У меня не работает плагин, так как надо.На светлом фоне иконки белые.Можно ли изменить, чтобы цвет панелей показывался как у вас на скриншоте. На темном фоне плагин отлично работает

    1. hi there
      i checked your site, and you have some conflicting CSS in your #footer li
      which is causing the problem.
      add this CSS rule to fix it:

      .contact-side li {
      display: block !important;
      margin-bottom: 5px !important;

  2. I have just added the widget and it appears fine when I am logged into the WordPress admin, but as soon as I log out, it disappears.

  3. This is an amazing plugin! I have had multiple clients comment on how well it works on my site because of the colour changing capability and how it all connects to my sites so easily!

    Going to buy the Pro version ASAP for all of the sweet perks!

    Thank you Smartcat!

    2. google plus
    3. tumblr blog

    If this plugin is available on github, I would like to fork and work along with you, because, I was about to develop a similar kind of plugin, but found your plugin just in time.

    Thanks in advance.
