Author Social Links


  • An example of what the 16×16 icons will look like next to the author’s name
  • The added fields to the Contact Info form under edit User Profile


Installation is really simple.

  1. Upload plugin-name.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Update the Contact Info fields in your user profile


The links aren’t showing up, what’s wrong?

This plugin relies on your theme using the the_author_posts_link function to generate the author link. If your theme uses it’s own hooks or builds the link itself using get_author and get_author_link instead, the plugin will not work properly.
