  • Plugin okay, but your admin page will be spammed with nag messages - Replies: 0 I have the pro version, and it does an okay job of floating plugins, but a couple major complaints: • Support is very slow to respond and they have no public forum. • The biggest problem is them spamming almost every open space on your WordPress control panel with nag messages/ads trying to get you to upgrade, purchase other services, and like them on all social media. No way to get rid of these. Some nag messages go to error pages. Bottom line – It’s just minor plugin, and one that most people can easily do without. You got my money, now make yourself unobtrusive.

  • The Floating Social Media Icon Wordpress Plugin was installed on our QuiltAddict.com recently. The plugin installed flawlessly and the set-up options were easily selected for our preferences. We currently have the Icon Floating capability disabled due to website theme preference, although the Icons themselves function well, look great! Thanks for your Support.

    Doug Stuner Quilt Addict Team
  • Icons are wonderful - Display much better against a dark background.so everything is good now! I think you folks definitely have the most attractive and professional looking plugin for this. Works well in all browsers I have tested including my iPhone4s and iPad3.
