Great Add-On!

Fantastic - so easy to use! Only thing that would make it better is if there were a Goodreads icon... any chance of that in the future?

Thank you so much for providing such a great product!

Thank you for the great review.
Unfortunately my schedule doesn't allow me to add icons anymore as it requires finding them and reworking them to fit the other icons which is time consuming.

If you're interested however there is a pro version herehttp://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/social-icons-reloaded-p... that allows you to add any network you want with any icon you want so it's very flexible and you could add GoodReads easily

Before 1.1

Does what it says it does

Very nice. Flexible and easy to use. Good set of options too. Actually stopped me from going for a paid add-on.

Very nice add-on

Easy to set up, great look and feel.
Any chance of adding google+ anytime soon?

wow thanks for the very nice review.
Adding google+ should be pretty straightforward provided I find the proper icons to match the set I'm using.
I'll look into it soon

5 Stars for support

In spite of that the add-on not worked with me at first I must say that there is a quick response and support. 5 stars for that!

I just downloaded your social icon package and installed it on my concrete5.
When I try to use it it doesn't work. When I try to add the block I can fill in the url's but when I try to activate it , te add-on stays in loading mode, I view only the loading picto for minutes and maybe hours. When I abbort the change the add-window closes but the loading picto stays on my page. And when I close the edit-mode of my page, my whole page is modified, background etc. tekst is moved away etc. I use the Rigid-light template. What am I doing wrong?

Hello,
Sorry to hear you have all these problems.
I need you to provide me with the following information:
- version of concrete5 used
- url to the website if it's live

Could you send me a copy of the source code of the page you are trying to load with the add-on included?

Also are you sure you put the folder for the add-on in the folder called packages at the root of the website? Not in the concrete/packages folder and not in the blocks folder?

Thank you

Very Nice!

I had one issue and that was a conflict with CSS naming from the static Facebook and Twitter naming convention that I used. I had not deleted it from the themes CSS and the icons I used where in the themes image directory. This affected the back-end of the component and caused the two icons to show up in the input area of the respective fields, and was not allowing me to easily type in my Facebook and Twitter addresses.

I was at the end of an 18 hour shift and spent an hour on trying to fix this. I did send a support request and this is the reason that I am writing this review...

I got a reply from the developer immediately, it was less than a couple of hours. when I gave him the requested information he replied back and when I woke up the response was waiting.

I was able to figure out this funky conflict that had nothing to do with his code, and move on to more important things! The add on works perfect and is supper simple to use. Looks perfect and best of all, he responded when I had an issue immediately.

In a world (and industry) where it seems like everyone is in a race to the bottom it is nice to find a developer that has enough pride and self respect to take the time to support something that he freely gives away.

If this is any indication of the type of support he provides with any of his paid services I will be looking to him first. If I were to sum my thoughts about this developer in a word... Excellent comes to mind but still does not do the add on or his service justice.

Thank you very much for your help and for your wonderful add on!

wow...
Many can't be bothered to give a simple thank you even when getting help but once in a while there is someone who makes it all worthwhile.

Thank you so very much for your review

Highly recommended, excellent support

This add-on is a must for any website.
It is very easy to configure (especially for a beginner) and with a few clicks you have a set of elegant social icons on your page.
The support is excellent, I received a very succinct and detailed step by step response to my question within a few hours. Thank you.

Elegant, functional and super easy

Just installed this add-on using concrete 5.6 - no trouble at all, immediately grasped the way it works and was able to tweak the icons' appearance to fit my layout.

Super job! Thanks for giving this add-on to us :-)

Simple and efficient

Pomlo
This add-on just do what you can expect from it, very simple and efficient.
Just a small issue in my opinion is to set "target=_blank" on the email link.
Thank's for sharing this and happy new year to the C5 community

Edit: I've added a 5th star for the impressive support on this addon. Reply in a couple of hours and solution/fix follows, just perfect !

Thank you. I have updated the add-on to correct that. Check it out.

Really like this app!

Simple, quick and easy - looks great! Only problem I have, is it possible to change the ALT tags?

Thanks for the great app!
Response by mnakalay on at

Hello,
Thank you so much for your review.
It's not possible to change the alt tag unless you want to do it manually.
I have however a paid version that offers a total control over that, you might want to check it out it'shttp://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/social-icons-reloaded-p... It has more networks, allows to change link (and alt) text, icons, icon size, order of the networks...

Review posted by CheSimpson on at

Does what it says quite well.

This is a good add-on. It's easy to go in and edit the icons to change their color if need be (I made mine black/grey/white to fit my theme palette).
It's easy to remove the text labels and choose big or small through the interface too.
I'd like to be able to align them to the right or center, however I'm sure this is also easy through the CSS (just haven't had time to try yet).
Also of positive note is that all you have to do is create a new icon to replace one you arent using and just put the url in to that website if the site isn't listed (I'm referring to one obscure site I use as a photographer).
One of the nicest add-ons Ive used - and its free!
Response by mnakalay on at
mnakalay
Thank you for taking the time.
You are right it's pretty straightforward to replace a network with a custom one and actually also to create a new one although a little more involved.
Shameless Plug: If anybody is looking for that functionality and many more and doesn't want to go through the code, there is a pro (paid) version Social Icons Reloaded Pro that does all that and morehttp://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/social-icons-reloaded-p...
