Popular Brand SVG Icons – Simple Icons
Add social media and popular brand icons to your WordPress website
This plugin allows you to easily add high-resolution icons to your website and recolor them without using image tools such as Photoshop. In addition, because the icons are in SVG format, you can easily resize the icons and the icons will remain in full resolution. SVG icons are all vector format, so you can even download the icons and change them if you want.
Add popular brand icons anywhere on your website in SVG format. SVG format allows you to resize and change the icon colors without pixelating or hurting resolution.

Advanced caching for lightning fast icon loading
Our plugin utilizes advanced WordPress cache transients to cache in icon in the database for fast page loads. Each time you add a new icon to your page, our plugin will automatically cache it the first time the page with your icon is loaded. From that point forward the plugin will automatically load the icon from the cache.

Using the Simple Icons icon selector
Utilizing the backend simple icons selector in your WordPress admin is the easiest method for finding and using icons on your website. Simply use the search bar and type in the brand name you want to search for. You will see that the icons below instantly filter based on your search keywords.
Once you find the icon you want, click on the copy icon next to the format you want to use. Remember: you’ll want to copy the hashtag for menu navigation items, and the shortcode for anywhere else on your website. Once you’ve copied the code you need go to the page or menu you want to add it to and paste it.
To restart a new search, simple delete the previous search and you will see all icons appear again. Then you can search for another icon.
