How to remove social media icon and link from Social Media Widget plugin

Are you having trouble removing a social media icon and link from your WordPress website? Are you using the Social Media Widget plugin? Here's our solution.
This is one of our smaller recent projects - July 18, 2019

Social Media Widget is a WordPress plugin that helps website owners add icons to their widget areas to link to their social media accounts.

We had a client who was trying to remove the Google+ icon and link from their site (since Google Plus now ceases to exist).

The solution wasn’t obvious to the client (or, initially, to us), but following our noses we managed to resolve it by :

  1. Opening the ‘Social Media Widget’ in the widget area
  2. Clicking the ‘Social Networking’ dropdown tab
  3. Removing the ‘http://’ placeholder from the social network to be removed
  4. Clicking ‘Save’ at the bottom of the widget

The plugin hasn’t been updated for a while, but if you are interested you can find it here…
