function slug_edit_svg_social_menu_styles( $styles ) {
    $styles .= '<style>additionalStyles</style>';

    return $styles;

It works fine *out of the box* and make us poor leisure-bloggers look like a Pro! The plugin is written with a clean and semantic code an even has a "Walker"-class! I would also take it for money. Thanks Sebastian

2.0.0 – 27.09.2019


  • Use the menu item link text as screen reader text, instead of the channel name. This is a breaking change for those who left the link texts of the menu items empty, because in that case the social links now do not have a screen reader text anymore. To fix that, add link texts to the items via the menu editor.
