    I’m really excited to use this plugin, but I can’t get it to work at all. It’s also asking for a width which I’ve done several different and still nothing is coming up. Can you help?

    • Alexandre Pereira

      Same thing here! plugins looks awesome though i can’t get the tiles to align beside each other, they all aline but in one direction, downward!

  • Nimbleniche

    what is the minimum and maximum width I can give? I couldnt change mine..

    • HowOpenSource

      Hi Nimbleniche,

      Can you please provide me your site URL? So that I can check it and tell you the width size for your site.

      Note: There is no minimum and maximum width for my plugin. Leave the width field empty and check it, plugin will automatically fit within your sidebar width.

      • Nimbleniche

        Thanks for the reply. I have sent you a message through “contact form”.

    Love this plugin…. so cool looking and compact. However, I don’t use FeedBurner. How can I swap that out for my FeedBlitz feed for example? Or take it out completely leaving use the social buttons?

    Cheers.

    • HowOpenSource

      Hi Ann,

      I Updated the Plugin with new feature, Now you can use your our own Feed.

  • http://nerdbong.com/ Mr X

    I love this plugin can i suggest two things?

    1. the rss feature can we just put our own site rss (eg http://www.example.com/rss )instead of having to use feedburner. lots of people are expecting google to remove feeder like they did to google rss
    2. would love to have instagram as an option

    Problem.

    i have used it on my site but it shifts title borders across columns. screenshot attached

    • HowOpenSource

      Hi,

      I will update the feed option in the next release and I will try to add Instagram ASAP.

      For title border problem: Try unchecking the AutoFix option.

      Thanks and Regards,
      Manivannan M

      • http://nerdbong.com/ Mr X

        i’ve come back to to use this plugin and unforunately it still does not work. this happens when i use auto fix. WITHOUT autofix, NO icons are displayed.

        so with autofix it works but as you can see, it crosses over the widget boundary

        • Marcus

          I am having a similar issue, but on mine it overlaps the widget below metro.

    • HowOpenSource

      Hi,

      Plugin Updated, Now you can use your our own site rss.

  • RetentionGrid

    We really like the plugin! However, the blocks changed after the last update.. and now it looks like this:

    Is there anything we can do?

    • HowOpenSource

      Hi,

      Please add Google+ & LinkedIn to the plugin, so that I can check the issue and fix it for you.

      Thanks and Regards,
      Manivannan M

      • RetentionGrid

        I did, could you please take a look at it?

        • HowOpenSource

          Hi,

          I found the issue, you have added custom CSS for the plugin.

          To Fix: Just remove the below line’s from your style.css

          .metro-social .metro-googleplus {
          width: 26% !important;
          }

          .metro-social .metro-twitter {
          width: 26% !important;
          }

          .metro-social .linkedin-one {
          width: 52.67% !important;
          }

          .metro-social .rss-feed {
          width: 100% !important;
          }

          Thanks and Regards,
          Manivannan M

    is there a way to add Instagram to it?

    Is there a way to add instagram?

  • Carrie

    Not sure what I am doing wrong…my likes/followers show when hovering over, but none link to the sites. I am very much a novice – appreciate any help!!

    • diyhousehelp

      Each block will link to the specific social media site when likes/follow is turned off. I would like to see it link to the sites for both, but I can see that there is no real need as a person links to you when clicking the like/follow button.

  • Karl Baz

    Gorgeous plugin, and works brilliantly. Thank you very much for sharing this.

  • Katb

    Is there any way to center the plugin on the sidebar?

    • http://avgjoegeek.net/ avgjoegeek

      Best way to do that? Make it the correct width of your sidebar to fill the space correctly. Otherwise you’ll have to do some CSS tweaks to get it to align the way you want to in your WordPress theme itself.

  • Robinik

    Just installed the (great btw) plugin on http://www.gac2014.it. It’s in the footer but the images don’t link (not clickable). May u help me?
    Thx in advance

    • HowOpenSource

      Hi Robinik,

      I think you have found the solution. I checked, it’s clickable now.

      I found some CSS problem in your site, add below line (CSS) to your style.css to fix it.

      .metro-social li {
      padding: 0 !important;
      }

      Thanks and Regards,
      Manivannan M

      • Robinik

        Thank you for the reply and the help in css.
        The solution was found deactivating the counters. If I let them appear the problem still stand.

  • American Patriot

    Do you still answer questions regarding this plugin?

    • HowOpenSource

      Yes, I do.

  • http://avgjoegeek.net/ avgjoegeek

    This is an awesome plugin. Can I make a feature request? I would really REALLY love it if you could make it so the main focus social media could be one of our choice instead of defaulting to Facebook.

    Some of us love G+ a whole lot more (or YouTube/Twitter etc..) It would be a great feature in a future release to be able to choose what the “big icon” is.

    Great job on the plugin. It finally has the functionality and the look I’ve been looking for!

    • HowOpenSource

      Hi avgjoegeek,

      You have suggested a great feature for this plugin. I will add this feature in the future release.

      Thanks and Regards,
      Manivannan M

      • http://avgjoegeek.net/ avgjoegeek

        Thanks! I know alot more people would start using it if you were able to do it! G+ is the new hotbed of Social Media so go with the trends and you’ll see even more downloads!
