I face fundamental issues (the plugin doesn't load etc.) Please ensure that: You're using the latest version of the plugin(s) Your site is running on PHP 5.4 or above You have CURL activated (should be activated by default) If you're not familiar with those please contact your hosting company or server admin. Please check if you have browser extensions activated which may conflict with the plugin. Known culprits include: Open SEO Stats (Formerly: PageRank Status) in Chrome Adblock Plus in Chrome Vine in Chrome Either de-activate those extensions or try it in a different browser. If the plugin setting's area looks 'funny' after an upgrade then please clear your cache with String+F5 (PC) or Command+R (Mac). Please also try if the other plugin works: https://wordpress.org/plugins/ultimate-social-media-plus/ I get error messages 'Error : 7', 'Error : 56', 'Error : 6' etc. Those point to a CURL-issue on your site. Please contact your server admin or your hosting company to resolve it. Icons don't show Please ensure you actually placed them. The USM+ plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/ultimate-social-media-plus/) makes placing icons especially easy (separate question 3). If only some icons show, but not all, then please clear your cache, and check if you may have conflicting browser extensions (e.g. 'Disconnect'-app in Chrome). Also Ad-Blockers are known culprits, please switch them off temporarily to see if that is the reason. If the icons still don't show then there's an issue with your template. Please contact the creator of your template for that. Twitter share-counts are not displaying (anymore) Unfortunately, Twitter stopped providing that information. Changes don't get saved / Deleted plugin but icons still show Most likely you have the WP Cache plugin installed. Please de-activate and then re-activate it. Links don't work Please ensure you've entered the 'http://' at the beginning of the url. If the icons are not clickable at all there is most likely an issue with your template. I cannot upload custom icons Most likely that's because you've set 'allow_url_fopen' to 'off'. Please turn it to 'on' (or ask your server admin to do so, he'll know what to do). My Youtube icon (direct follow) doesn't work Please ensure that you've selected the radio button 'Username' when you enter a youtube username, or 'Channel ID' when you entered a channel ID. Aligning the icons (centered, left- or right-aligned) doesn't work The alignment options under question 5 align the icons with respect to each other, not where they appear on the page. Everything else is template work. Clicking on the RSS icon returns funny codes That's normal. RSS users will know what to do with it (i.e. copy & paste the url into their RSS readers). Facebook 'like'-count isn't correct When you 'like' something on your blog via facebook it likes the site you're currently on (e.g. your blog) and not your Facebook page. Therefore it also doesn't show the number of your facebook followers however that's something we're thinking about offering as well. Sharing doesn't take the right text or picture We use the codes from Facebook, Google+ etc. and therefore don't have any influence over which text & pic gets shared. Note that you can define an image as 'Featured Image' which tells Facebook / Google etc. to take that one. You'll find this 'Featured Image' section in your blog's admin area where you can edit your blog post. You can crosscheck which image Facebook will take by entering your url on https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/og/object/. The pop-up shows although I only gave my icon one function The pop-up only disappears if you've given your icons only a 'visit us'-function, otherwise (e.g. if you gave it 'Like' (on facebook) or 'Tweet' functions) a pop-up is still needed because the buttons for those are coming directly from the social media sites (e.g. Facebook, Twitter) and we d;
