Release Social Links version 1.0.5

Today we released the latest version of social links.

This was not really a planned release, but we spotted a bug when using one of our themes, and then read an interesting article about web page Embeds. This is the same concept that allows you to put the URL of a youtube video and it is replaced by a video player.

New Embeds Feature in WordPress 4.4

This is the article and notice that it displays as an embed information card, when all I put in the editor was the URL. I decided that this would look great for my sites links. However, I found that it needed some code to achieve this. For security reasons the list of sites that work is limited. So, with a couple of hours research and work. he social links plugin will allow you to add links to your own site and have them displayed as embed cards.

Just like this…
